Congratulations on your pregnancy! As your health-care providers during the pregnancy, we expect you to develop a number of questions about pregnancy, birthing and infant care over the ensuing months. Of course, we are happy to answer those questions as they arise. In the current age of technology, many expectant mothers and fathers turn to the internet as a source of information and answers. Currently, a websearch of "pregnancy" reveals over 11 million websites on the topic. It may be difficult for you to know which of those sites contain the most reliable information. For this reason, we are providing a list of several reliable, medically accurate websites for you to access if you desire. We encourage you to be an active participant in your own health care. Should questions arise as you do your own research, please let us know and we will be happy to help answer them.
