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.

 

Julia Cassels,
Minister of Gender and Development

We want to applaud the Big Belly Book.

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.
