Prenatal Care at JPS
Prenatal care is important to help you stay healthy during your pregnancy and give your baby a healthy start in life.
Healthcare providers can spot – and treat – health problems early when they see mothers regularly. Mothers can also learn about things they can do to stay healthy and give their babies a healthy start.
The healthcare that you get while you are pregnant is called prenatal care. Women who see a health care provider during pregnancy develop healthier babies and are less likely to give birth too early. At JPS, the goal is that every pregnant woman begin receiving prenatal care by the 13th week of pregnancy.
