Pregnancy is usually expected to be a safe and healthy process. Seeing a medical provider regularly throughout the pregnancy helps to ensure potential problems can be dealt with promptly before they become serious for the woman or the fetus. Women who have certain chronic diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure have better chances of successful pregnancies if their illness is under control before pregnancy occurs. It is best to do everything possible to be sure you are in good health before getting pregnant. When pregnancy is suspected, it is important to have it confirmed as early as possible and to set up a schedule for regular medical checkups.
