Planning for birth and parenthood
Great new resources for parents have recently become available containing advice on pregnancy and the first five years of a child’s life. Extensive research with parents and parents-to-be across Ireland have influenced the creation of a website called mychild.ie. Alongside this new ‘My Pregnancy’ and ‘My Child: 0 to 2 years’ and ‘My Child: 2 to 5 years’ books are now being given to all pregnant women at the antenatal booking visit and are also available to download from http://www.mychild.ie/books.
