Antenatal care is a type of preventive health care, During the 9 Months Of Pregnancy. Its goal is to provide regular check-ups that allow doctors to treat and prevent potential health problems throughout the course of the pregnancy and to promote healthy lifestyles that benefit both mother and child. During check-ups, pregnant women receive medical information over maternal physiological changes in pregnancy, biological changes, and prenatal nutrition. Recommendations on management and healthy lifestyle changes are also made during regular check-ups. Routine Antenatal care, including prenatal screening and diagnosis, has played a part in reducing the frequency of maternal complications, miscarriages, birth defects, low birth weight, neonatal infections, and other preventable maternal health problems.
