Introduction to Wong BB Classes
Dr Wong has one philosophy that she aims to live by everyday – to empower every mother to breastfeed if she wants to. Breastfeeding is thought to be a natural act for mothers and babies, but it comes with practice and through bonding between the mother and the baby.
Whether you are a first-time parent or already a “trained” parent, we aim to help every parent build confidence as you embark on your parenthood journey from pregnancy to childbirth and beyond, by sharing comprehensive and intimate information about pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and baby care.
Our classes are uniquely crafted and designed with the immense amount of experience which Dr Wong has over the years. Her passion for teaching ensures that every parent goes home with extensive knowledge and skills so that the child can get the best care.
