You're pregnant! In this first lesson, we'll examine the basics of pregnancy. You'll discover that a happy and healthy pregnancy involves preparing for physical, emotional, and even social changes.

Even if you're well into your pregnancy, this lesson will help you appreciate the amazing work your body is doing during these nine months!
Eating for Two and Exercise
