Information on preparing for birth & parenthood

The booklet will give you information and sources of information that are available to you. It gives you a flavour of many of the topics you will be
interested in while pregnant and just after giving birth but is by no means an exhaustive source. You will get more information and help as you talk to other
mothers, healthcare professionals and on-line. Follow on information from the HSE is available in our three guides: Caring for your Baby - Birth to Six
Months; Caring for your Child - Six Months to 2 Years and Caring for your Child 2 to 6 Years. Your public health nurse will have copies of these booklets or see
