Prenatal/Preconception Care

Pregnant WomanPrenatal Care is the care a woman gets before pregnancy and before her baby is born. Getting early and regular prenatal care is important for both the mother and the developing baby.

Prenatal care includes health care, along with education and counseling about how to handle different aspects of pregnancy. A health care provider may discuss many issues, such as nutrition and physical activity, what to expect during the birth process, and basic skills for caring for an infant. Health care providers are now recommending a woman see a health care provider for preconception care, before she is even trying to get pregnant.
