First-time pregnancy and welcoming a new baby into the family is a unique experience
for each new parent. You can never be adequately prepared for the experience of pregnancy and parenthood. This is one experience we all go through in different ways. In hindsight, you might see a couple of things you wished you had done differently. You
might say to yourself “This would have gone a lot smoother if I had known better” or “knowing what I know now I would have handled this differently”.
There are some health challenges that pregnancy brings into play and if you can identify the
early symptoms of these health challenges then maybe you can avoid its resulting complications or if not, you or maybe a family member or friend can benefit from your knowledge. In this course you will learn about some usual and unusual health challenges
faced by pregnant women and new mothers, things your mother never told you.
This course will help you prepare, prevent and limit “ I wish I had known better moments”, guide you to take necessary actions promptly, help you accept the things
you cannot change and to know when to ask for help.
