Prenatal Patient Information Sheets

Prenatal care is more than just health care while you are pregnant.  Your obstetrician will discuss many issues with you, such as nutrition and physical activity, what to expect during the birth process and basic skills for caring for your newborn.  Prenatal care is an essential part of a healthy pregnancy for both mother and baby.
