Preparing For Pregnancy

As soon as you know you're pregnant, it's vital to start regular prenatal care right away. It can help find risk factors or any potential problems with your pregnancy. This is also a good chance to ask your doctor any questions you might have.

Talk to your doctor about getting prenatal vitamins and folic acid supplements which can help reduce the chance of birth defects. Folic acid is vital to help reduce the chance of conditions like spina bifida.

Make a list of your questions before your prenatal visit.

Always eat a healthy diet before and during pregnancy.

Stop smoking. Ask help from your doctor if you need it.
