Planning for Pregnancy

It’s never too early, but can be too late!

slide103
When to have a baby...
  • Although you should start planning for a baby, starting as young as possible, doesn’t mean it is best to have a baby at anytime.
  • Your body isn’t best fit to carry a child during teen years and also when you turn 40 and older.
  • You should be financially secure. According to my experiment a baby can cost about $4,000 per year, this is not including child care.
  • Being emotionally secure is also important, you have to devote your time to a baby constantly, and you have somebody else who depends on you.

slide104
Fathers-to-be
  • The males sperm stays inside of his body for up the three months.
  • If the male does drugs or alcohol, the sperm may become damaged, also some drugs may prevent the father-to-be from producing as much sperm as usual, possibly making it harder to fertilize the egg, but don’t forget, it only takes 1.
  • So before trying to conceive a child, the father-to-be should stay away from harmful substances for ATLEAST three months, remember longer is better.
  • And Everyone remember, no smoking around the mother-to-be. Second hand smoke can be harmful to the baby, as well as the mother.

When finished, click mouse to continue.

slide105
Did you know that what you eat before you even begin to think of conceiving a child, may affect your future baby?

Remember ladies, all of the eggs you will ever have are already in your body while you’re still in your mother’s uterus, so whatever you do that affects your body good or bad, may also affect your eggs as well. Likewise whatever your mother did while she was pregnant with you may have affected your eggs then, rather good or bad.

Folic acid is an essential part in your daily diet, to best ensure a healthy baby, you should eat at least one serving of a folic acid per day, its never to early to start.

Dairy products are also extremely important. You should intake at least 3 servings per day.

Remember to follow your food guide pyramid, and a different food guide pyramid should be used for pregnant women.

Smoking
  • Put all the facts together, is smoking good for you health? NO! Then how can it be good for your baby?
  • Smoking while pregnant may cause miscarriage or still birth.
  • Asthma or other respiratory problems are possible.
  • Your baby may die from SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). This illness causes a baby who seems healthy to die with no warning.
  • It could result in learning or behavior problems in later childhood.
  • Your baby may be born too soon or too small, and babies born too small may have breathing or other health problems.

  • “I have learned that a child gets so much out of just talking with them. One of the children I was grouped with was a girl who did not speak English. I helped her relate my frog puppet to the English and also the Portuguese word for it. Through this I noticed the importance of interaction and pictures, and props in teaching a child. More than that, it emotionally enriched me.”

Inside the mind and body of a preschooler

preschooler s physical development
Preschooler’s Physical Development
  • Lots of sleep and nutrition is needed for the proper growth to develop.
  • Common health problems consist of ear infections ( caused by growing ear tubes ), the common cold, stomach aches, and head aches.
  • Most preschoolers enjoy growing, they might say something like “ I can do it because I’m a big boy/girl”.
  • At an early age preschoolers show signs of being right or left handed.
preschooler s emotional social development
Preschooler’s Emotional/Social Development
  • Praising your preschooler is very important at this age, they are still extremely dependant on their authority figures to become confident in their self worth.
  • Have very strong emotions, but they may only last for a very short time.
  • At this age they start to play with other children their age not just around them or beside them.
preschoolers intellectual cognitive development
Preschoolers Intellectual/Cognitive Development
  • Most children act like or mimic their parents at this stage. So setting a good example is vital for their development.
  • A preschooler might ask lots of questions, but that is just their way of learning.
  • During the preschool age most children start developing their counting skills and can understand shapes, relative size, and spatial relationships.
slide193
Summary

A Preschooler, ( age 3-5 ), can enjoy the process of growing, but it can overwhelm them with changes. They need lots of help from their parents, who help them discover their self worth. Certain skills develop at different times and sometimes in different orders. They may be a little shy to be around other children their age at first, if they haven't been around other children a lot, but they just need to get used to the people their size.
