The Importance of Prenatal Care

Women health services

Did you know that babies of mothers who do not get prenatal care are around three times more likely to be born with a low birth weight? The importance of health care for women can not be understated, and it is highly recommended that pregnant women take advantage of the women health services offered around the United States.

For instance, a pap smear can detect abnormalities long before they can be seen by a doctor or felt by the patient herself. OBGYN doctors are actually professionals that devote their lives to prenatal care. They say that a prenatal diet high in protein or fat is bad, as it has been tied to heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

A pap smear can be performed as part of normal prenatal care. A pap smear is a test that checks for changes in the cells of the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus and opens into the vagina. A pap smear is a typical process in most prenatal care routines.

In Virginia, prenatal care is abundant. In a city like Norfolk obgyn doctors are on call ready to make sure your pregnancy goes as smooth as possible. If you have any doubt or any questions about your pregnancy, do not delay and see a professional at once.

During pregnancy, it is suggested that women avoid contact with rodents, including pets. They should also avoid their urine, droppings and nesting material as rodents can carry a virus that can be harmful or even deadly to a newborn baby.

Theres a reason doctors preach the importance of prenatal care. Mothers who take care of their bodies and prepare well for children are more likely to have healthy kids than parents who dont.
