Action 7: Promote Safe Pregnancy


7. Promote safe pregnancy: Every wanted, healthy baby born to a healthy mother consolidates a family and reduces unmet fertility desires. Providers in fertility/infertility programmes should identify and collaborate with providers and organizations that promote safe pregnancy.

Safe pregnancy results in healthier mothers and babies and less cost for society. A safe  pregnancy and healthy baby provides the outcome desired by the woman and her family,  reducing the need for additional attempts at pregnancy. Safe pregnancy reduces the risk of complications that could result in future infertility and need for treatment.

Providers should identify, support and refer to other providers and programmes that promote safe pregnancy.
