February may be the shortest month of the year, but one thing it’s never short of is love. It’s a special time for couples and an even more magical one for those expecting.
This February at OASIS, we are hosting a number of prenatal classes and workshops so Moms-to-be can get both physically and mentally prepared for pregnancy, labor, postpartum and newborn care.
OASIS hosts numerous workshops, classes and events throughout the year. Our doctors, nurses and staff love getting involved in the community and being there when you need us. Workshops and classes are a great opportunity to meet with our doctors, put your questions to them, learn about medical services and take a tour of the hospital.
February Event Schedule:
Feb 15th, Wednesday, 4pm – 5:20pm
Feb 25th, Saturday, 9am – 2pm
Join in our OASIS Prenatal Yoga classes to relax and escape Beijing’s busy metropolitan. Connect and feel closer to your unborn baby as yoga instructor Nurse Lina guides you through exercises to stretch and relieve any pregnancy aches and pains and promote muscle flexibility and strength for a natural delivery.
Prenatal yoga is free to participate in and is taught through English and Chinese. This class is suited to those in the their second or third trimester with no medical conditions or issues which would be contraindicated to doing prenatal yoga. This class incorporates traditional Chinese medicine concepts and techniques with soothing Chinese classical music to relax and prepare your body and mind for the miracle of birth.
Research suggests that prenatal yoga can improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth and decrease lower back pain, nausea, symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath.
Having a baby is one of the most wonderful experiences in life, but at the same time it can be quite overwhelming. OASIS International Hospital aims to make your birth experience the best it can be, by providing you with the knowledge and confidence you need to make informed decisions.
Get involved in our workshop activities learning breathing techniques, birthing ball positions to relieve back pains and new born swaddling and nursing techniques. Our hands-on doctors are fully involved in our workshop and they get you involved too.
Enjoy our morning workshop, with workshop hosts, Dr. Juliette Kinn, OB/GYN and Dr. Jayne Ziermann, Head of Pediatrics. The OASIS Childbirth Workshop is a paid class. Refreshments are given out during the class with a break midway for lunch (included in the cost) and a booklet to take home with information learned from the class.
