Preparing for Your Childbirth Class- Part 3

3 - Gestation

When we start to understand the amazing growth of our baby, loading up with drugs while pregnant, even just before birth, seems incomprehensible.

This website shows you the growth of your baby week by week.

I also love the book by  Lennart Nielson called A Child Is Born which has some amazing pictures.  (I also have a few copies available for borrowing in class.)

Understanding the development of your baby is often a motivating factor in sticking with a healthy pregnancy diet, avoiding drugs of all kinds, and keeping up with the exercises even when they may seem like extra work.

This is a pamphlet from ACOG (boo) but it has a nice rundown of your babies development.

Keep your chin up and remember how worth it this is!
