In this study session, you have learned how to make a routine assessment of a pregnant woman at an antenatal visit, and identify healthy or warning signs and symptoms and the possible actions you should undertake. You have learned how to assess women for poor nutrition, pallor, shortness of breath, hypertension, fever, diabetes and vaginal infection. You have learned how to measure temperature, pulse and blood pressure, and test for sugar in the urine. In the next study session, you will learn how to conduct an examination of the pregnant woman's abdomen to measure the height of her uterus. This helps you to know whether the fetus is growing normally during the pregnancy.
