Choose physician early in pregnancy
To the editor:
Choosing a physician early in your pregnancy is so very important to the health and the wellbeing of both the mother and unborn child. Proper medical care can assure a better pregnancy.
Maternal/Child Health and WIC is available to help you in numerous ways also. We can assist with finding a medical home if you need one. We will coordinate with your physician in education, dental screening, and hemoglobin monitoring in the three pregnancy trimesters and post-partum. We have registered nurses, registered dieticians, social workers, and certified lactation consultants available for individual help sessions. Please allow your physician the opportunity to help you during your pregnancy. Please also consider Maternal/Child Health and WIC to be included.
