Mom getting ready for new baby

Prenatal Care

Seeking prenatal care when you learn you're pregnant is one of the best things you can do for you and your baby's health. It's important because, in addition to routine exams and tests, prenatal care includes education on pregnancy and childbirth. Your prenatal visits also give you and your health professional time to build a working relationship. 

Our team of experts at Concord Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology, Concord Hospital Family Place Prenatal Care in Laconia and Concord Hospital Family Health Center are committed to providing family-centered maternity care for both routine and high-risk pregnancies in conjunction with The Family Place. They get to know you and your partner and work to empower you throughout your pregnancy by providing information and resources to help you make choices that match your values.
