Make an appointment with your doctor right away. If you need help finding a doctor or scheduling an appointment, please call 1-800-962-8074.

Receive early and regular prenatal care. Prenatal care is the care you get throughout your pregnancy.

It’s also a great time to get answers to any questions you may have about your pregnancy.
