The third and final stretch of the pregnancy, the third trimester, is here. What a journey it has been!
If you haven’t already done so, it might be a good idea to register for birth preparation courses. For example, in a class for pregnant women and expectant parents, you can practice relaxation and learn breathing techniques, which can help during birth. Talk to your midwife and become familiar with courses and classes that might be available online.
Visits to the midwife are now becoming more regular and more frequent. The midwife checks that you and the baby are well and follows the growth and you get to listen to your heartbeat.
