Health Tip of the Week: Prenatal care schedule

Pregnant women should see their midwife, family practice physician, obstetrician or other health care provider regularly for prenatal care. Your health care provider will recommend a schedule that is right for you. For healthy women with no complications during pregnancy, this is usually the recommended schedule:

Weeks 4-28: a visit every four weeks

Weeks 29-36: a visit every two weeks

Weeks 37 to birth: a visit every week
