Pregnancy is an exciting and beautiful time when parents prepare to welcome a new life into their family. But one thing many new parents don't realize tis that your parenting duties begin now! This evidence-based, 8-page booklet talks about things you can do before pregnancy, why it is important to pay attention to baby before birth, monitoring your pregnancy, risks to mom and baby, and the importance of learning to know your baby, tests and examinations and what they can tell you, the importance of sleep during pregnancy. Instructions for monitoring your baby are provided including a pull out 3rd trimester movement record. There is a discussion on when you should be concerned and what will happen if you're concerned.
