The importance of proper prenatal care and testing

Expectant parents in Washington State who carefully select a health care provider to take care of the mother and baby during the nine months of pregnancy through to labor and delivery have taken a big step toward protecting the health of their new loved one.

Types of assisted vaginal delivery

Moms and dads who are looking forward to the births of their new babies most often have ideas of how they want the births to occur.

Knowing that medical care is available if need be may be important indeed but this remains important.
