Bump Ahead!

It seems like there’s always a never-ending checklist to get ready for your new arrival. Keep your healthcare simple. We’ve got you covered with these essential decisions for a healthy pregnancy:

Weeks 1-10

Start taking prenatal vitamins and ditch unhealthy habits like those extra cups of coffee, your late night glass of wine and smoking.

Choose your OB and make an appointment

Discuss diagnostic tests and genetic screenings (especially if you’re a high-risk pregnancy)

Weeks 11-20

Decide whether you want to find out the baby’s sex and start planning accordingly

Sign up for a childbirth class

Take a tour and decide where you want to give birth

Weeks 21-30

If you decide to breastfeed, meet with a lactation consultant or attend a class

If you plan on returning to work, look into childcare (daycares fill up fast!)

Weeks 31-40
