Planning for Your Prenatal Visits
Prenatal visits aren’t meant to stress expecting parents, but that doesn’t mean they’re not stressful. During your prenatal appointments, your doctor will assess the health of both you and your baby.
Our guide helps you plan for and understand what your prenatal visits are about.
- What is prenatal care?
- What should I expect during first trimester screenings?
- What will I learn during my second trimester screening?
- What is each pregnancy ultrasound for?
Knowing the answers to these questions will help you feel less stressed and more relaxed through-out your pregnancy.
