Did you know there are health care workers whose jobs are to provide special kinds of health and medical care for moms-to-be and their babies-to-be? This kind of health and medical care is called “prenatal” care: “natal” is just a fancy word used in the healthcare world to talk about pregnancy and birth, so “pre-natal” covers everything that happens before a baby is born!
There many types of health care professionals who provide prenatal care – including obstetricians, nurses, family physicians, midwives, and nurse-midwives – and there are lots of procedures and assistance to keep pregnant women and their babies safe and healthy.
At the next meeting of the Ladder, we’ll talk about the different kinds of prenatal healthcare and the doctors, nurses and others who provide it! So bring along one of YOUR baby pictures to share and join us for lunch (provided!) and learning at the next meeting of the Ladder Saturday July 13th at 12:30pm at the UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis). The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
The Ladder is a Society of Medical Scholars ages 9 to 99, and meetings are the second Saturday of every month and open to anyone and everyone.
