Every pregnant woman wants to make sure that her baby is healthy. Getting prenatal care from your doctor as soon as possible is the first step you should take during your pregnancy. Prenatal care is the care you get from your provider, midwife or other healthcare professional before your baby is born. The goal of prenatal care is to monitor the progress of your pregnancy and to identify potential problems before they become serious.  

As soon as you think you are pregnant, call your healthcare provider to find out when you should come in for your first prenatal care appointment. During your pregnancy, please make sure you attend all of your prenatal care appointments, even if you are feeling fine.
