Enroll for Antenatal and Postnatal Care Program

Description

Antenatal and Postnatal care consist of prenatal (before birth) and postnatal (after birth) healthcare for expectant mothers. It involves treatment and training to ensure a healthy pregnancy, labour and delivery for mom and baby.

​Prenatal care helps decrease risks during pregnancy and increases the chance of a safe and healthy delivery. 

Regular prenatal visits can help your doctor monitor your pregnancy and identify any problems or complications before they become serious. 

On the other hand, postnatal care is important too. This period lasts six to eight weeks, beginning right after the baby is born. 

During this period, the mother goes through many physical and emotional changes while learning to care for her new-born baby. 

Postnatal care also involves getting proper rest, nutrition and vaginal care. 

Females must go to their nearest clinic upon suspecting that they are pregnant. ​An Identity Document/Passport as well as proof of residence is required for registration.
