What Was Measured?

Why Is It Important?

The best HMOs make sure that both the mother and the baby stay healthy during pregnancy and after the birth. Regular check-ups during pregnancy help uncover problems, like high blood pressure or diabetes, that can threaten the health of the mother or the baby. Check-ups shortly after the birth can help the mom take care of herself and the new baby.
