Antenatal Class @ KPJ Selangor

KPJ usually organised antenatal every fortnight, on Saturday at their Bahagian Latihan 4th floor. Cost you only RM80/ couple, it's a one-day course from 9-6pm inclusive 3 times meal, notes and goodies bag.

Since I did my routine checkup there, so we choose to take the class as well. Besides, considering the location and price, it's not really worth it to travel far just for the class. We were planning to join the class since I was 7 months pregnant, but due to work, outstation, kenduri and courses that we both have to attend, terpaksa la postpone until last Saturday.

They conduct the class with at most 6 couples (or maybe more? I'm not sure...) with 7-8 topics covered. The first one is Pregnancy & antenatal where they explained mostly about being pregnant and the stages. And 2nd one is on Diet during pregnancy, which I found very helpful especially when you're at your early stage of pregnancy. What to eat... what to avoid... the quantities... the fact that you're not suppose to "eat for two" becuz you will absolutely put on more weight :P

Third one is pain relief in labor. All sorts of drugs that you can have, and when you can ask for the drug. And this is when I was informed that the laughing gas is actually in the maternity package. So make use of it. Sedutlah sampai lalok pon xpe... diorang takkan charge extra. And guess what? Epidural can cost you up to extra RM1000!! Ade stgh2 yg baca kat internet, epidural only cost lebih kureng 400-500 je. And besides, the reason behind, why you cannot ask for epidural after you're 5cm dilated. Sblm ni asek dgr org ckp je kan... but this time, diorang explain kenapa. And also alllllll the risks for each drug you take. Xde hiding ape2 agenda. So you can decide your birth plan earlier!

Fourth one is Labor, the most awaiting topic, at least for me :P Eventhough I read a lot these days (buku okeh... bkn internet je!), but I still found that this lecture is the best one. Not only they explained the stages, but the theory and practicality behind it. Contohnya? The easiest one is bab seluk lah. Orang yg xpnah pregnant wont know how they perform the seluk. Just like me. Totally no idea. But the O&G taught us how, and why, and what they actually look for during the selukan :P I mean... like... how they actually measure the dilation. Cool huh? And besides, the O&G also shared the detailed process during labor. How they performed episiotomy... and why. Eventhough thru reading you know why, but the O&G explained more than that! Besides, for those yang berani, they let you watch the real vaginal birth. The whole process! I never dare to watch that before on youtube, tapi tibe2 dlm klas ni mcm xde perasaan n terberani plak. The chenta hati yang pucat lesi mcm nk pengsan. Mcm die je yg nk beranak isk3

Fifth one is all about your baby by paed. How they check, and what they check immediately once the baby is delivered. The immunisation that need to be taken, the risks, jaundice, chicken pox, rashes and blablabla. Sixth class is about breast feeding. Again, my fav one! Eventhough we know that everyone can breast feed, but how and what's the good behind it, were explained in this class. And the causes of why some people are having sore nipple. Becuz you need to learn the right technique. Bkn main sumbat je dlm mulut baby. Ecewahh... cakap pandai. Tgk la nnt nk buat... ntah2 same je hahaha. And breastfeeding is all about your psychology thoughts. Kalau dlm otak asek pk tak mampu nk breastfeed, mmg lah susu tu takkan kuar. So from now on... think +ve!

And then the seventh lesson is about exercise and breathing technique. This one quite boring la. Exercise biase2 saje... mmg sebijik2 ape yg ade dlm buku. The last class is cara nk mandikan baby. This one pun fun. You know the step by step how to mandi baby, how to hold the baby and 1st thing to do before mandi the baby. Besides, most of the doctors also gave a lot of advises. Contohnya, they wont suggest us untuk pakaikan bedak kat baby. Why? Sbb the small particle yang akan di inhale oleh baby is too dangerous. So... lap kering2, xyah guna aid of bedak. The other thing is, puting or teats adalah diharamkan di KPJ. They said, jgn manjakan baby dgn puting or even pacifier, sbb nnt die xnak your breast dh. Lgpun... pacifier tu kena make sure betul2 bersih and sterilized before bg kat die... which is leceh kan? Good to know la.

Finally... visit to maternity ward and labor room. This one is to get the rough idea of what you're going to deal with later. What to expect, how the room looks like... what they offer, the use of each stuff inside the labor room and so on and so forth.

Eh entry ni dh mcm mengajar plak. Tapi jangan tak pegi ye. I would suggest you to go during your 2nd trimester. Jangan ingat tu terlalu awal... sbb mmg tak awal langsung. 3rd trimester tu dh kira terlambat n ketinggalan.


  1. Awak, boleh tak kita nak tahu kenapa Epidural tidak dibenarkan selepas 5cm dilated? Ngeh~

  2. nk tau nape ye. alasan die just sbb bile dh 5cm dilate, biasenye kekerapan contraction tu makin dkat (3mnts apart). so utk cucuk epidural tu kena precise. kalau kejap2 asek saket je... risiko utk tersalah cucuk tu tinggi. anaest tanak tanggung risiko tu. xde ape2 reason behind medical practise pun :P

  3. u check up kat KPJ mana eh?i mean selangor which part?& ever check up slalu will cost u berapa yer?

  4. KPJ Selangor tu previously known as Selangor Medical Center... kat seksyen 20 shah alam. average bill tetiap bulan dlm rm120 la. kalau xde ubat kdg2 rm80. kalau kena inject around 200. kalau check darah paling mahal... dkat 300.
