Guide and Manual, 2015
Good oral health during pregnancy can not only improve the quality of life of the pregnant mother, but also potentially reduce complications during pregnancy as well as the risk of her child developing early cavities. This presentation is an education tool for prenatal educators to share with pregnant women, women who have recently given birth, and women who are considering getting pregnant. Presentation objectives are: 1) to increase awareness among women of childbearing age of the importance of oral health during pregnancy, for the overall health of women and their children; and 2) to encourage women to include oral care as part of their routine prenatal care.
Information Card, Revised 2019
This information card has been developed to support parents in their role as the primary sexual health educators of their children.
It is important that parents engage their children in sexual health discussion at an early age, beginning with teaching the proper terminology of body parts. Early introduction of the topic increases the confidence and comfort of both the parents and children to talk about sexual health at later years.
This is a summary of the larger consensus document. The aim of both documents is to provide oral and prenatal care providers in Saskatchewan with a better understanding of the importance and safety of oral care during pregnancy so that oral care can becomes part of routine prenatal care. The consensus document was developed in collaboration with the Maternal Oral Health Working Group, with many Saskatchewan groups and organizations expressing formal support.
