In Liberia pregnancy is called
Big Belly Business.
It is also the name of a joyous pregnancy book and program that plants its feet firmly in an expecting Liberian woman’s sandals to support and celebrate her journey towards motherhood.
Minister of Gender and Development

This program will positively impact both outcomes and parent satisfaction and uphold the rights of pregnant women to health care that is accessible, affordable. and does not discriminate. It encourages communication between the pregnant woman and the other members of the family, the health care system the community and the country at large.
