  • Birthing classes in Jakarta (the Sudirman area)

    Dear all,
    haven't seen any birthing classes advertised at my ob-gyn (he's in the women's and children clinic in the dharmawangsa area).

    Any recommendations? In english is a necessity. I am due March 5 but am leaving Jan 20 to the US for delivery. Am afraid that squeezing a birthing class during that one month (if it is a month) will be a bit hectic.

    Thank you in advance.

      I joined prenatal yoga class at Yoga Light across Bina Nusantara High School in Simprug, close to Pondok Indah area. They also have mom and baby yoga class every Saturday. There's prenatal pilates class at Vitruvian Pondok Indah.
      I was told that one of PTs @ Life Spa Kemang is certified to train pregnant woman you might want to check with them.
