How Important is Antenatal Care?

The women is not only the seed but also the soil where the fetus is nutured for 9 months and brought into the world as a fully developed baby. Hence the total physical, mental and emotional development of the mother to her full genetic potential plays a very crucial role in deciding the total development of the baby. Generally the assumption seems to be that everyone has a carbon-copy pregnancy. This is far from true !
Each individual and each pregnancy is unique and people react quite differently to the experience. With the prevalence of nuclear families the would-be mother is ignorant of what’s happening to her body during pregnancy. How to cope with it, what to eat ,how much to eat, what is the normal weight gain, what are the complications, how to take care of the body, & what exercise can one do are the most common queries of the pregnant woman.

Making the pregnant woman aware of all the do’s don’ts not only gives an emotional boost but also helps a long way in preventing unnecessary complications. A pregnant woman should also know how much carbohydrate, protein, fat etc, to consume or it can lead to unnecessary complications like diabetes, hypertension, edema, obesity etc. Which can have a devastating effect on the baby as well. Antenatal classes will also cover relaxation techniques and special breathing techniques that can be performed during labour and which will help to experience a relaxed birth with little or no help from drugs. Exercises will help tone the muscles of the pelvic floor, feet and back which again aid in the comfort of the pregnant woman. One hour exercise session are also available for house wives, working women , people with diabetes,arthritis, etc. Individual diet counselling is provided for various problems like obesity , high BP , heart problems , diabetes , gout etc.
