Eating well, staying active and keeping track of your wellbeing helps both you and your baby during pregnancy. Preparing for a new baby can be both an exciting and frightening time, especially if it is your first. Your body will go through many stages of pregnancy so, it is important that you look after yourself and provide your baby with the best start in life.
In South Western Sydney, the fertility rate is well above average with over 14,000 births in 2019, representing 15% of the NSW (New South Wales) total. Our local health district has developed an app that our local mums can download from the Android or Apple store - My SWS (South West Sydney) Baby Pregnancy Journey App. The app provides important advice about pregnancy and helps keep track of any antenatal appointments. The information is delivered at relevant times in the pregnancy and is about the local services in South Western Sydney.
