HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US:
The lactation consultation with Abie is a lifesaver. Had trouble with my latch and with confidence in my milk supply and almost gave up on breastfeeding but this session really helped shift my mindset and helped me with understanding how to get a better latch, how to be comfortable and confident with breastfeeding, and enjoy the process as well. Highly recommend this session to all mummies especially first time mums.
My husband & I attended Hegen’s Caring for your Newborn class a couple of days back, and was attended to by Siew Hwa & Abie who were both very warm welcoming and friendly from the start till end. The entire course didn’t feel draggy and certainly provided us with all the information that we needed as first time parents. Abie was patient with our questions and made sure to engage both parents throughout the session. Highly recommended for first time parents to attend this course! :)
Excellent experience at Hegen Lactation Center. My consultant was Abie who was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable. I gained valuable knowledge and confidence in my breastfeeding
If I have a confinement nanny, do I still need to attend this class?
It is wonderful to be able to have help immediately postpartum so you and your partner have time to recover from childbirth and ease into this new season. We believe antenatal education gives parents the knowledge to make decisions regarding your baby and family, and also the ability to care for your baby after the confinement period has ended.
Our classes and the support our team renders aim to empower you to take on your roles as parents confidently.
Who can attend the classes with me?
We encourage partners to attend classes and consultations together. At the heart of the childbirth and babycare experience is teamwork. It takes two hands to ease into this new season of being parents, babycare and breastfeeding.
However, if you prefer for your other caregiver of the baby to come with you instead, do let us know and we will facilitate accordingly.
