Frimley Health and Care are encouraging mums and mums-to-be learn more about their pregnancy and the support and help available to them as part of its #ReadyforPregnancy campaign
We know that healthy women have fewer complications during pregnancy and are more likely to have healthy babies that grow into healthy children. It is for these reasons that looking to improve your health before conception is an excellent way to give your pregnancy and your baby the very best start. Partners also have a role to play in staying healthy.
Here at Frimley Health we have provided some advice, tailored to women and families planning a pregnancy, which might help you on your journey to better health prior to conception. We have developed our maternity website (https://www.frimleyhealthandcare.org.uk/maternity ) which has a range of information about planning your pregnancy, services and support throughout your pregnancy and advice about caring for your baby.
Dr Anne Deans, Consultant Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, Chief of Service Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Frimley Health says: “We want you to you to feel supported throughout your pregnancy and hope that the information on our website will provide you with a range of useful links, groups and advice, to support you at whatever stage of your pregnancy, even if you are just thinking about getting pregnant”.
If you are thinking about a pregnancy and looking for information about how to prepare and be in the best shape possible, #ReadyforPregnancy is here to support you. Our website has booklets in various languages including easy read, a BSL film, and lots of hints and tips
Frimley & Wexham Maternity Voices Partnership Co-chair Kate Hargreaves says: “We have worked with Frimley to ensure that our website has all the latest and current information on it to support women locally. We have lots of useful resources about getting pregnant and managing your pregnancy but also recognise that whilst bringing up children is fun, it can also be challenging. Online parenting courses offer the opportunity to get help with your child’s emotional health and well-being at a time that suits you and these are also published on our website (https://www.frimleyhealthandcare.org.uk/maternity/your-pregnancy/register-for-free-online-parenting-courses )”.
Our campaign page includes tips and information on a wide range of topics relating to #ReadyforPregnancy. If you are thinking about a pregnancy and looking for information about how to prepare and be in the best shape possible, #ReadyforPregnancy is here to support you.
