“De Camino a la Maternidad” is a Spanish language version of “Journey to Parenthood: Your Guide Through Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond,” developed by the Childbirth Connection and translated by Our Bodies Ourselves.

Like the English edition, the 74-page “De Camino a la Maternidad” (PDF) is geared toward childbearing women and their families, who will find it helpful to use either independently or with health educators and maternity care providers.

The guide helps families make informed choices about pregnancy and childbirth, and covers such topics as prenatal care, fetal development, nutrition and lifestyle, diagnostic tests, breast-feeding, labor and birth, postpartum care, and newborn health. Boxes, lists of questions, and an accessible format enhance this unique resource.

De camino a la maternidad was made possible by a grant from MetLife Foundation and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
