Pregnancy, Labor and birth of a child are important milestones in a couple’s life. Regular medical care, knowledge of your choices, and understanding the unknown events during pregnancy can make childbirth an extremely enriching and joyful event.
A woman’s health and behavior in pregnancy affect her baby. A poor diet, smoking, intake of alcohol, certain drugs, and severe illnesses can hold back the baby’s development. Hence during pregnancy, you should not only take good care of your own health but also go for regular checkups with your doctor. This is antenatal care and it is absolutely necessary because it makes sure that you and the baby are fit and well.
