Pre-Natal Care Info Available Through Cypress Health Region
If you’re pregnant or know someone going through a pregnancy, the Cypress Health Region is encouraging you to look into the pre-natal care they offer.
“It’s a very important service available to pregnant mothers which really guides them through pregnancy,” said Consulting Medical Officer of Health Dr. David Torr. “I know that in this day an age we have a lot of advice we can get from the internet.”
“Sometimes you can’t be sure which advice is proper and which is not.”
The care offered by the health region expands beyond the end of the pregnancy.
“In pregnancy it’s very crucial to understand what is safe for you to take in terms of medications and food,” Dr. Torr said. “What you need to take more of and less for the best outcome for both yourself and the baby.”
“Not just for during the pregnancy but even for continuation into life.”
Dr. Torr noted there is a maze of information out there and support from the public health office can help guide you through it.
The Cypress Health Region offers pre-natal classes and you can call the public health office if you have any other questions.
