Thalita Kelly Motano Daquinto, participant in the Gestar Bem Program: “I am 39 years old and I returned to Dourados 3 years ago to work. I always had the dream of being a mother and at that time I met my husband and got pregnant. It was such a happiness. Dreams coming true. However, the pandemic came and the world had to readjust to the routine. And I would be no different, even more pregnant. Transferring my Unimed to the state of MS, I had the happy opportunity to get to know the “Viver Bem” program of preventive medicine at Unimed Dourados. What a unique opportunity. I was welcomed by the entire team, where they created a group of pregnant women “Gestar Bem”, with the intention of guiding us in what is necessary and of supporting each other in this moment of whirlwind of feelings. Many there, like me, are first-time moms. But that didn’t matter because the reception was so good and the exchange of experience was so natural and human, that being a mother and dealing with motherhood is being “light”.

To say that I have no fear, insecurity and doubt, I am omitting, but I certainly have, in addition to my family, a second support to help me on this journey. I, in particular, went through very antagonistic situations: life, with the birth of my son and death, with the departure of my dear father-in-law. With the opportunity of a better service for my husband, and I couldn’t take classes, which is my job. Hence, I reinforce the joy of being in this group to achieve my best, being a mother. Gratitude to the whole team and the moms, who with love we exchange help “.

Simone Kunrath, participant in the Gestar Bem Program: “Participating in the Gestar Bem group at Unimed is very important in this new phase that I am experiencing, initially as a pregnant woman and now as a mother. Through it we receive guidance from a team of professionals who are concerned about our well-being and that of the baby. They clarify our doubts about the most varied subjects involving pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, baby care, nutrition, psychological aspects, among others, through whats, videos and informative materials. In addition to enabling contact and exchange of experiences among mothers participating in the group. All this follow-up is surrounded by a lot of affection and professionalism, which gives us greater security in many moments of everyday life”.
