A healthy pregnancy leads to a healthy birth
Prenatal care is the way to a safe and healthy delivery for both mom and baby. Babies born to mothers who do not get prenatal visits have a higher chance of being born with a low birth weight, which may cause health problems. In addition, the likelihood that a baby will die is higher if its mother has not had prenatal care.
