Prenatal Care

Prenatal Care is the care you get while you are pregnant. This care is provided by a team of doctors professionals', physician, nurse practitioners, nurse, family counselor and nutritionist. The goal of prenatal care is to monitor the progress of a pregnancy, answer questions, provide support and education and prepare for the delivery and the birth of a child.
