Find out more about how to prepare your body for pregnancy and about how to stay healthy once pregnant.  For example, did you know that you not only need to take folic acid while pregnant--you should really start to take this and a full prenatal vitamin prior to pregnancy in order to ensure the right health and nutrition for your growing baby?

Pregnancy is a natural process. However, there is a certain amount of care and attention that needs to be provided to a pregnant woman. A thorough health check-up is absolutely essential during pregnancy. This is important not just to determine the health of the mother, but also that of the growing fetus. Leading women and child hospital like Rainbow Hospital provides comprehensive tests, which include genetic scans.
