Many pregnancies are not planned. Women may not know they are pregnant for a few weeks or months. During this time, the fetus grows rapidly and can be affected by a number of factors. For this reason, it is important for anyone who is planning to have a baby to be as healthy as possible. This website is designed for people thinking of having a baby in the near future. It raises issues that can affect men and women and the health of their future children, answers commonly asked questions people think about as they consider parenting, and provides information (including web links and phone numbers of places to go and people to talk to for more information) to help them plan for the healthiest baby possible.
This website is bilingual.
