Caring for Baby in the Womb

Caring for baby in the womb starts years before conception. Like us, Babies too need healthy environment to grow – also in the womb.

Preconception health care prepares a disease free happy womb for fetal development and thereafter.

Sexual activities are common and fun too!

Even children get interested in matter related to sex even before the onset of puberty. But there could soon be a baby involved, usually escapes their consideration.

Consequently, majority of pregnancies are unplanned and unintended, which have undesirable impact on the baby in the womb, parents-to-be, the family and eventually on the entire society.

Awareness on preconception health care need to be propagated.

Prevention and adequate treatment of infections and other diseases is also important for healthy pregnancy. Moreover, obesity among youths has taken a form of worldwide epidemic. Diabetes is also on the rise. Both have undesirable effect on the fetus.
