Care during pregnancy

Getting early and regular prenatal care is one of the best ways to promote a healthy pregnancy.

Prenatal care is more than just doctor visits; it often includes education and counseling about how to handle different aspects of pregnancy like nutrition and physical activity, what to expect from the birth itself and basic skills for caring for your infant.

Choose a provider

If you have just found out that you are pregnant, choosing the health care provider that is right for you is important—whether it be an OB, PCP, nurse practitioner or midwife. When choosing a provider, be sure to ask if they deliver at the Salem Health Family Birth Center. You’ll also want to make sure they are covered under your insurance plan.

Prenatal appointment schedule

Prenatal appointments give you and your family a chance to talk to your provider about any questions or concerns you have related to your pregnancy, the birth or parenthood.

Just for dads

Pregnancy is an important time in the life of a new mom, but it also involves the love and support of dads. Even if you are not a first-time dad, it’s worth finding out all you can about what to expect before the baby arrives.

Diabetes and pregnancy

If you have a history of diabetes, it’s important that you discuss this with your provider and find out what you should be aware of during your pregnancy to ensure you and your baby’s health.

Financial information

It’s a good idea to call your insurance company early in your pregnancy to find out about their specific requirements and to discuss covered benefits in your policy.
