The Health Promotion Board has just released three booklets for expecting and young parents. Two of them feature segments specific to fathers. Here are the details for the booklets. PDFs are available for downloading. Simply follow the links.
The Healthy Start For Your Pregnancy guide provides parents-to-be with informative and practical tips to maintain a healthy pregnancy throughout each trimester, as well as allows them to create a memorable journal of the pregnancy development.
This is to be presented to expectant women through the O&G clinics in KKH, NUH and SGH upon confirmation of pregnancy.
The Healthy Start For Your Baby guide provides parents with informative and practical tips to nurture the health and well-being of their baby from birth to 2 years old, as well as allows them to create a journal of their baby’s childhood memories.
This booklet is to be presented through 9 maternity hospitals (Gleneagles, KKH, Mt Alvernia, Mt Elizabeth, NUH, Parkway East, Raffles, SGH and TMC) together with the Health Booklet to mothers who have just delivered a newborn, prior to discharge from the hospitals.
The Healthy Start For Your Growing Kid guide provides parents with essential health information and practical tips needed to raise a healthy and happy preschooler, including parent-child activity ideas to make it easy for their child to understand the key messages of each health topic.
The Healthy Start For Your Growing Kid book is presented to parents of K1 and K2 children through pre-schools.
You can download the chapters of the booklets in pdf format from the HPB HealthHub website (or the direct links above) or obtain a copy from the Health Information Centre located at HPB. A toolkit will also be available for loan at the national libraries.
