Prenatal care is important from the first sign of pregnancy. Infants born to mothers who receive no prenatal care or late prenatal care are nearly twice as likely to be born with low birth weight (less than 5.5 lbs.) or a very low birth weight (less than 3.5 lbs.), than infants born to mothers who receive early prenatal care.
No woman should go through pregnancy without the support and care she needs. Oregon Mothers Care connects pregnancy services in our community for easy access.
