De Madre A Madre Prenatal Care Photonovels

In the De Madre A Madre Photonovel Series, Lupe and her relatives and friends tell their stories about what it's like to be pregnant and how to stay healthy during pregnancy. Each character is in a different stage of pregnancy. This way the changing experiences and questions during the different phases of pregnancy emerge naturally throughout the stories.

  •      Ana is Rosa 's sister. She's 9 months pregnant.
  •      Carmen, 6 months pregnant, is Ana's best friend.
