Prenatal tests are medical tests you get during pregnancy. They help your healthcare provider find out how you and your baby are doing and help find conditions that can increase the risk of complications for you and or your developing baby.
Some of these tests, like blood pressure checks and urine tests are routine. You get these at almost every checkup. You get other tests at certain times during pregnancy or only if you have certain problems. Talk to your provider about which test you should have. For more information, go to the following resource.
