NEON Services: Comprehensive Prenatal Care

14 July 2010 NEON Services No Comment


Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman’s life. It can also be a time of great anxiety and fear of the “unknown” as a new life is growing and developing inside the womb. To help ensure that things go as planned, it is essential that you receive proper prenatal care. Prenatal care is important for all women because it can help to identify conditions in the woman and/or fetus that may jeopardize the pregnancy.

Prenatal care is especially important for the African American woman. We have the highest incidence of pre-term labor, low birth weight babies and other pregnancy-related complications. Also, certain diseases and illnesses that are frequent in our community (diabetes, hypertension, sickle cell) can cause significant problems in pregnancy. For this reason, early and frequent prenatal visits are essential to help ensure a healthy pregnancy and ultimately, a healthy baby.
