Stay Healthy

You might not have thought too much about your diet or vitamins before you got pregnant, but now you need to stay healthy for your baby. 

Find a doctor

You're going to see your doctor a lot during your pregancy--and we mean a lot. So it's important to find someone you like and trust. You can ask your parents, friends, and family for recommendations. Or you can visit our health center locator to find a low-cost health center near you.

Follow the doctor's orders

Your doctor will probably suggest you start taking some vitamins and she'll give you a lot of other advice on what to do and what not to do during your pregnancy. Do your best to follow your doctor's orders! If you have any questions make sure you ask your doctor. They've probably seen and heard everything, so don't feel embarrassed!
