Pregnant women advised to be serious with their ante natal
Pregnant women have been advised to take their antenatal programme serious to enrich their knowledge of coping during pregnancy as well as be equipped with the best information to care for their babies when they are born.
The advice was given at Onigbongbo Health Centre, Maryland, Lagos by the President, Rotary Club of Onigbongbo, Razak Adesina Salau during the execution of maternal and child health project by Rotary Club of Onigbongbo where about 60 pregnant women were given mosquito nets, pads, Dettol, among others. The Club also donated pads, medical equipment and drugs were made to the Centre.
Salau noted that the project, meant to have been carried out in the month of July, was deferred till the day it was finally executed to enable the club meet the mothers-to-be on their antenatal day.
“It is our annual ritual to donate to this centre as part of our commitment towards their operations and assist pregnant women,” he said. He lauded the cooperation of the nurses at the centre at all times, which has kept on encouraging the club.
