NMC Healthcare “Mama Care” – Providing support and confidence during and after pregnancy

  • Pre- and postnatal advice for pregnant mothers and their husbands from qualified medical professionals
  • Parents will learn about baby growth, diet, exercise, parental roles and infant care

NMC Healthcare’s Mama Care programs presents a unique maternity care educational program for expectant and new mothers.  Expectant mothers in their first, second or third trimesters and new mothers can register for prenatal and postnatal guidance from expert healthcare professionals including dietitians and exercise physiologists.

Mama Care’s antenatal classes will cover an array of topics for mums- and dads-to-be, ensuring they are prepared for the birth of their child. Expectant parents will learn about the growth of the baby, changes experienced by the pregnant mother, appropriate diet and exercise, important roles and contributions of the husband during the pregnancy, the labour process, how to care for a new-born baby, and support after discharge from the hospital.

The Mama Care programme also offers postnatal exercise classes for new mothers to keep fit and healthy after having a baby. Exercise after pregnancy and birth helps new mothers return to their pre-pregnancy shape and gives them increased energy to cope with the demands of motherhood. Mama Care’s postnatal exercise classes are designed specifically to help mums get fit at a time in their lives when they need it the most, under careful supervision by obstetricians, exercise physiotherapists and personal trainers. There are many benefits of postnatal exercise including improved posture, better muscular endurance, more stamina, increased energy, higher metabolic rate, weight loss to help return to pre-pregnancy weight, increased self-confidence and reduced anxiety. But the exercise programmes should not be performed without the approval and supervision of a qualified medical professional.

The program is running successfully in NMC Specialty Hospital in Dubai, Al Ain & Abu Dhabi.
