Course Description

Pregnancy is a common enough occurrence.  It happens all the time.  Until it happens to you or someone you love for the very first time.  Then, the questions mount and without answers your fears may begin to get the better of you.  By looking into the entire process of pregnancy, the kind of care you can select, evaluating the choices you can make will take away the fear and anxiety of this very beautiful condition. 

 


Prenatal Care will give you advice, information about the conditions you can expect to face as you journey through your pregnancy, and just what your baby is doing each week.  This course will also let you know what to expect in terms of prenatal testing to assure the health of your baby.  It will also talk about the importance of nutrition, vitamins, hydration, and rest.

 

 Learning what could be dangerous to you and your growing baby will help you to make choices at work and at home that will ensure the safety of both of you. How you take care of yourself during your pregnancy will have a major influence on how healthy you and the baby are after delivery. The beauty of preparing yourself for the labor and delivery portion of this journey is that you will have so many more choices than the mothers who just wait for things to happen.

 

 By adequately preparing yourself, your partner, and your healthcare giver, you will be the one in charge of your body both during and after pregnancy.  The end goal is to deliver a happy and healthy baby.  Prenatal Care lessons will assist you every step of the way.
