What is prenatal care? 

Prenatal care is when you get checkups from a doctor, nurse, or midwife throughout your pregnancy. It helps keep you and your future baby healthy. 

Why is prenatal care important? 

Prenatal care is an important part of staying healthy during pregnancy.   

Your doctor, nurse, or midwife will monitor your future baby’s development and do routine testing to help find and prevent possible problems. These regular checkups are also a great time to learn how to ease any discomfort you may have, and ask any other questions about your pregnancy and the birth of your future baby. 

If you are considering parenting or adoption, it is important that you receive prenatal care as early as possible in your pregnancy. Planned Parenthood Association of Utah does not offer prenatal care. 

How to find prenatal care: 

Have insurance? 


Contact your insurance provider for a list of approved prenatal medical care providers.
