To bring the pregnancy to a successful conclusion, the orientations of the doctors must be followed to the letter, filled with life and health for the well-being of the already constituted family and that little person who is about to come to the world.
To this contribute, without a doubt, the psycho-prophylactic exercises that pregnant women can perform after 26 weeks of gestation, provided the doctors authorize it.
This benefit is enjoyed by pregnant women admitted to the maternal hospital of Matanzas , where on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 11:00 a.m., the Master in Physical Culture Sciences Iris Rodríguez performs the exercises and also explains this procedure to students of the Comprehensive General Medicine degree.
According to the Master in Science, psycho-prophylaxis is nothing more than the psychic preparation for childbirth; those who perform it achieve a physiological delivery more easily and are better prepared for that moment.
On the other hand, pregnant women who cannot do these exercises due to presenting any pathology are taught how to breathe at the time of delivery and any doubts or concerns related to this crucial occasion are clarified.
Fundamental are the talks related to breastfeeding, which are also attended by pregnant women in the health center itself.
