New mother training, Phon-ngam sub-district, Udornthani province
“It’s so worried that my baby would be in good health and normal physical conditions” This is the most winning answers of a question – what do you think about your pregnancy? We have explained and discussed with new mothers several issues related to good taking care of pregnancy. Good health of new mothers is a meaning of good health of new babies. Mothers need to do and not to do in many ways while being in pregnant situation.
Public health service of Thai Government in nowadays is quite well developed, especially strategical approach for new mothers and babies. There is a national campaign called ‘Safe new child, Safe new mother’. This is good initiation to educate new mothers to understand and realize how to take care themselves in accordance to the hospital’s services and guidelines. However, we still have heard some incidents happened to lives of new mothers and babies from time to time. Some cases, babies died before having birth. Some new young mothers have been transferred to hospitals due to serious sickness from bad abortions. (min a training day, doctor received a phone call and informed that – one baby died due to nuchal cord)
Including to good knowledge and appropriate skills, the training is importantly focused on good parenting and child rearing practices. For pregnant women, observation of ‘abnormal conditions’ is clarified and how to cope with it as well as emergency management if abnormal conditions may be harmful to the health of babies.
