Meet Sally Cox and Astrid Wilson
My second child ‘Monty’ was born in Malaysia in December 2017. As such I really do know how apprehensive a ‘mum to be’ can be about giving birth in an unfamiliar country. I was lucky as Astrid came out to Malaysia to support me when Monty was due and luckily we timed it just right! The experience was very positive in Malaysia and so The Baby Club was born of a need to bring new mums and dads together in an ex pat environment.
I hope you have a super Pregnancy and enjoy every minute.
Hello I’m Astrid! I’m so excited to be a part of the Baby Club. My journey here started when I visited KL at the end of 2017 to help and support my friend Sally in her pregnancy and labour. There are many differences in the maternity systems in KL compared with the UK, we struggled to find any antenatal classes or ways of meeting other expectant couples. As a midwife of over 30 years’ experience, I know how important education and preparation for delivery and parenthood is. Hence the birth of the KL Baby Club!
I qualified as a midwife in the UK in 1987 and have worked continuously in the job I have a huge passion for. In the UK most pregnant women have continuous care from a designated midwife, with regular antenatal checks and parenthood classes. We then go on to deliver all normal births in hospital or home, and continue that physical, emotional and educational support until the baby is 2-6 weeks of age. I have had the privilege of watching the beautiful development of hundreds, if not thousands, of families. What a great job!
There is so much information out there for new parents, much of it conflicting, most of it confusing. At the Baby Club we will give you all you need!
I am also a mother to three grown up sons and as much as I love being a midwife, being a parent is the best job I could possibly have.
I look forward to meeting you to help you with your journey to parenthood
