Cultural and religious beliefs affect many aspects of our life. The culture and religion that we have been brought up in and that we belong to can play a large role in how women and men approach or deal with their fertility, pregnancy, labor, delivery, and upbringing of the baby.

Pregnancy is celebrated in many parts of the world. In some countries, your family is intimately involved in all aspects of pregnancy, birth, and upbringing of baby while in others it is a very private journey.

Food plays a major aspect of many cultures, with many pregnant women only eating certain foods during pregnancy and postpartum.
