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.
