Instead of getting lost in
Instead of getting lost in the details, arm yourself with four key resources that together can help you begin to protect your baby even before he or she is born. A comprehensive reference manual. Put answers at your fingertips for what that cry means, or when to call the doctor. There are many books to choose from. An excellent pediatrician. Find one who will respond immediately to your calls when the reference guide isn’t enough, and whose office is convenient to your home. Family medical history. Find out if there are any medical conditions in your family that indicate the need for pre-natal testing and / or make saving cord blood a wise investment. Insurance. In addition to health care coverage for your baby, consider life insurance for you and your spouse or partner. When you wake up in the middle of the night thinking, “I’m pregnant and I want to protect my baby,” if these four resources are at hand you can rest easy.
