Trying to Conceive
If you are trying to get pregnant, now is the time to take great care of yourself. Learn more about about how to track your ovulation and take care of yourself as you prepare for this special time in your life.
Taking care of yourself during pregnancy can lead to better outcomes for you and your baby. Eating a healthy diet, not smoking and abstaining from alcohol and drugs will all contribute to a healthy pregnancy. Find out more about steps you can take to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Having a baby is a very personal moment. The nurses, physicians and nurse midwives at Denver Health work with mothers to give them the experience they desire during this very special time. Mothers are encouraged to talk to their providers during prenatal care and on the day of delivery about the birth experience they expect. Learn more about what to think about in creating your own birth plan.
Your health and well-being are important after you deliver your baby. Remember to call your clinic to schedule your six-week postpartum check-up visit after your baby is born. Your baby will also need medical check-ups as well.
