Whether you’re trying to conceive or the test is already positive, you probably have many of questions and feel overwhelmed by the information available in books and on the Internet. Maybe you’re not ready to tell your friends or you can’t get in to see your doctor for several weeks. This class will provide an overview of the anatomy and physiology of fetal development. We will help you choose an obstetrician/nurse midwife and prepare you for what to expect during your prenatal visits including prenatal testing and procedures. We will discuss prenatal health and nutritional needs including diet, weight management, heartburn, nausea, vomiting and constipation. We will also cover sexuality and bedrest during pregnancy. Checklists and information about additional resources available to expecting parents will also be provided.
