Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
The wonder and excitement of pregnancy and childbirth are unmistakable, but they also present a highly stressful experience for mothers as well as fathers. Covering the key developmental stages in each trimester, this insightful program addresses questions and anxieties that may be troubling new parents as it follows a new mother through the nine-month journey of pregnancy. Staying focused on the personal and practical elements of the story, the video presents medical information on fetal development, birthing options, the birthing process, and the emotional and physical aspects of pregnancy. On-camera experts include two experienced midwives and a respected obstetrician.
