In the Philippines, church workers are helping educate pregnant women about how to keep themselves and their babies healthy.
Pregnancy usually means extra doctor visits to make sure the mother and baby stay healthy.
Some women, however, don’t have this option because either they live in a remote village or it’s not traditional practice. They often don’t realize the many health benefits that preventative care can offer both them and their child.
In the Philippines, World Challenge partners have begun offering “mothers’ classes” for pregnant women in rural or poorer areas.
