Why is Prenatal Care Important

A healthy start. Why is it important?

Prenatal care benefits every woman during her pregnancy. 

Prenatal care is important to the health and future of your unborn baby.

  • Don't wait to see a health care professional.
  • Eat healthy. Take a multivitamin every day.

Women who see a health care provider during pregnancy:

  • Lower likelihood to have other serious problems related to pregnancy
