When Should I register for Antenatal Care?
It is advised that you register as soon as you receive the news that you are pregnant. You should have a minimum of 8 antenatal contact sessions throughout your pregnancy.
Why Antenatal Care?
Pregnancy brings a whole lot of changes to your whole body and there are lots of things you should and should not do, best foods to eat and things to avoid, and medications you should not take for the period. You will need expert medical knowledge to go through this phase successfully.
As every child is unique so is every pregnancy. You must register for antenatal for every pregnancy. Many women, especially those who are already mothers, might see antenatal as unnecessary, however, each baby’s journey is unique from the others and must be carefully monitored through the course of their development.
