Understanding the Stages of Pregnancy
The human gestation period is approximately 40 weeks in duration, divided into three trimesters. Specific foetal developments occur in each of the trimesters and a pregnancy is deemed to be full-term at 40 weeks.
Changes: for the infant and mother
During each of the trimesters, important changes and developments occur for the developing baby and its mother. As the baby grows and the mother’s body changes to accommodate and nurture the infant, maternity clothing is needed and, following the baby’s birth, many women then need suitable breastfeeding clothes.
