  • It is never too late to go... Personally, next time I find out I am pregnant, I won't go to the doctor/midwife for prenatal care at all.

  • You should always get prenatal care...why I am not sure...I mean there are some things that you only find out if you have prenatal care but overall it really doesn't impact that much...problem is that you don't know whether you need it unless you are getting it. But it is never too late to get care. That would be like saying it's too late to quit smoking or drinking...About the only thing it is too late for is it's too late to start using birth

  • As soon as you can, be sure to provide the healthiest environment for your developing baby. If you can't be completely sure you're covering everything, seek professional care.
    Better late than never!

  • fact I was not able to see the Dr. with my first one until 5 months. Just take really good care of your 5 food groups, lots of water, and get on some kind of prenatal vitamin because your baby really needs the folic acid and extra iron...Get lots of rest...
    I think its pretty important to get in there though as soon as possible just to make sureyou are getting everything you need and you both are health. Get the book.."What to Expect When youre Expecting" Great guide book...It gives you stage by stage info.
