Pregnancy is actually the most complicated stage that women undergo. It is complicated in such a way that it needs special attention and failure to take precautions; this can affect the baby and extend to the mother of the baby.
This is why it is always advisable to have a prenatal care which will take care of any future complications especially during the nine months of pregnancy. Research shows that about 40% of women across the globe bear children which have complications which is actually sad news.
We do not know who to blame simply because you find that it is not fault of many mothers since some of them cannot get access to medical services due to marginalization. Some places are too remote in such a way that they are not even put into consideration when distributing health care facilities and thus pregnant mothers find it difficult in getting better places to deliver. Some deliver in very unhealthy conditions and thus transmission of diseases becomes possible which will lead to bad health in the new born.
Prenatal care as the name suggests is the check up that should be done probably before the pregnancy starts. This actually helps in taking care of the complications that may arise due to transmission of such diseases to the new born child. Prenatal care can help much because if a woman is regularly checked up before pregnancy starts, she will be assured to be free from and complication and can actually plan for her pregnancy with confidence.
It should be noted that the check up should be a routine not to do it only once. Women are advised to look for their personal doctors who will actually be checking them for any sort of complication before the pregnancy commences and good health for the child will be ensured.
Most people think that prenatal care should start after getting the pregnancy which is actually not true because you can have the pregnancy before a check up and yet you have certain complications that can be passed to the child and cause some deformation to the innocent child which is actually not good.
It is advisable that if you have access to any healthcare facility and you want to plan for a pregnancy, visit the doctor for a check up in order to avoid harming the child. This should be a routine even after getting the pregnancy simply because infections can also get you when you are still pregnant and be passed to the unborn hence causing more trouble.
To avoid danger for both the baby and the mother, prenatal care is essential and the early the better because prevention is better than cure. A woman may look very health physically but when she goes for a check up you find that she has a lot of complications that cannot allow her to carry a pregnancy.
The World Health Organization passes the message to all women across the globe to undertake prenatal care in order to minimize the number of complications that are found in new born babies caused by their mothers.
