The lesson “Maternal and Newborn Care” seeks to equip the mother to identify diseases that require prevention and ones that can be transmitted to the child during pregnancy and childbirth. She will also learn symptoms that may indicate a serious problem, requiring medical attention. She will learn how to evaluate her own health during pregnancy and identify any tests and/or immunizations she may need including HIV, CD4 (to determine progression of HIV or to determine if she has AIDS), sexually transmitted infections (STIs), malaria, tetanus, and anemia. This lesson helps her establish a plan to get medical help if needed and know where to seek help in the local community.
