The website was launched alongside three new books for parents. The new ‘My Pregnancy’ book is a 224 page guide that will be given to pregnant women at their first antenatal appointment from early 2019. Parents will then receive the next books in sequence, ‘My Child: 0 to 2 years’ and ‘My Child: 2 to 5 years’, from their public health nurse. See mychild.ie for more information. PHOTO: Mark Stedman
