Pregnancy & Family Planning

We want you to have a healthy pregnancy. Family planning helps:

  • You be healthy before getting pregnant.
  • Put off pregnancy until you are ready.
  • Protect you and your partner from sexually transmitted infections.

Before You Are Pregnant

If you are thinking about having a baby, you can do some things now to be as healthy as possible before getting pregnant. These actions can limit problems during pregnancy:

  • Make an appointment to see your PCP
  • Talk with your PCP about healthy eating
  • Stop smoking now
  • Take folic acid daily
  • Don’t drink alcohol or use illegal drugs
