Pregnancy and childbirth

Many questions arise during pregnancy and after childbirth: 

  • How do I take care of my own well-being during pregnancy? 
  • How do I support my partner during pregnancy? 
  • How can I be understanding and gentle about my own or my partner’s changing body and moods? 
  • What will happen during childbirth and what are the choices involved? 
  • How do the maternity and child health clinics work? 
  • Where can I find everyday life support for families with a baby?
