After eight years of successful development and thousands of happy parents, "Dr. Shterev" Medical Complex officially opened its renovated maternity ward. The maternity package of the most established family he alth center in Bulgaria is the bearer of one idea - to provide maximum care and comfort to pregnant women during the most precious moment for a couple and family - the birth of a new life.

Don't let what your mother thinks happen to you

You don't need to be a specialist psychologist to know that fear is greater when we face something unknown. Most people have experienced this cognitive phenomenon. The more familiar we are with something, the more prepared we are to handle the situation. Knowing the situation and the specific steps a pregnant woman will go through is one of the best ways to reduce her feelings of anxiety. The human brain is designed in such a way that, faced with the unknown, the individual "predicts" all possible scenarios for the development of the situation. Mothers also act in this way when they are worried about what happens to their children when they are not together. The explanation is very simple. It is an evolutionary process that has developed over millennia to help people anticipate the dangers that lie ahead. Therefore, psychologists advise pregnant women to visit the AH center chosen for their birth in advance and familiarize themselves with the steps on the way to a new life.

Dr. Shterev Medical Complex is one of the most established family he alth centers where you can give birth. If you want to see the wonderful conditions for childbirth and postpartum stay in the Complex, you can visit the "Open Day" initiative in the maternity ward, which is organized every second and last Thursday of the month from 4:00 p.m.
