Antenatal care

A healthy diet and lifestyle during pregnancy is important for the development of a healthy baby, and may have long-term beneficial effects on the health of the child.

It is also important for a pregnant woman to have regular checks with a midwife throughout pregnancy, to ensure that any conditions that may pose a risk to the baby’s health can be identified and treated.
