If you are healthy and this is your first pregnancy, you usually have 10 prenatal appointments. If you've had a healthy pregnancy, you may have had less.

Prenatal clinic is the care you receive from a health professional to ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy. It contains service and support information to help you make the right choice for you.

If you are fit and healthy and the pregnancy is expected without major problems, a small team will help you. This includes your midwife and family doctor. If your pregnancy is more complicated, an obstetrician-gynecologist can be included in your treatment.

There are midwives from the hospital and the community. The midwife in the hospital is in a maternity home run by a midwife, or a counseling center. They will support you through labor, delivery, and after delivery.

Community midwives often work in teams, which means you are likely to see a small group of the same people. When you start giving birth, they can help you give birth at home.

Other health professionals who can provide care include:

A sonographer who will perform your ultrasound examination

Perinatologists or specialists in maternal medicine – obstetricians who can offer more specialized treatment for complicated pregnancies or illnesses.
