“Waiting for Bebe” will deal with the unique concerns, both physiological and cultural, that Hispanic women face during pregnancy. In addition to the increased risk of gestational diabetes, Latinas also must be aware of their increased risks for developing hypertension, gallbladder disease, tuberculosis, rubella, obesity, and depression, all of which, if left undiagnosed at the time of pregnancy, can have devastating effects on the unborn child. “Waiting for Bebe” not only will address these specific health concerns, but will also explore the rich cultural traditions and myths surrounding pregnancy in Hispanic culture.
