Pregnancy Q & A
Why is prenatal care important during pregnancy?
To ensure you enjoy a successful pregnancy and a healthy delivery, you should begin receiving prenatal care as soon as you know you’re pregnant.
The goal of prenatal care is to reduce the risk of health complications in you or your baby and to ensure your baby is thriving as you get closer to your due date. Dr. Gabbay can provide guidance and resources to keep you healthy during your pregnancy, such as prenatal vitamins and recommendations for diet and exercise.
Routine prenatal checkups allow Dr. Gabbay the opportunity to identify potential complications in the earliest stages when treatment is often most effective.
