Newly Pregnant? Congratulations! Now what?
It's time to call your practitioner right away and set up your first prenatal appointment because clinic schedules book up quickly. You might be surprised to find out your first appointment will probably be between 8-10 weeks of your pregnancy! (To determine this date, they will ask you for your first day of your last menstrual period.) Your first appointment will likely be an hour long, although it does depend on which practitioner you are seeing. This is a great appointment for your significant other to attend because it will include a lot of education about the pregnancy, as well as give you both a chance to ask questions.
Now is the perfect time to register for our Childbirth, Newborn Care, & Breastfeeding class!
