Becomingaparent

You might be feeling overwhelmed by now with all the new information you have heard or read. But the first and most important thing to do is to talk with a doctor or health nurse that can help you plan for your pregnancy.

If you have a regular GP, they will be able to provide pregnancy care or refer you for pregnancy care. Or you can see a doctor a Family Planning Tasmania who can organise a referral to a pregnancy care provider.

Now that you know you are pregnant, looking after yourself and your baby all the way through your pregnancy is really important.

This means you may need to stop some behaviours such as smoking or drinking alcohol and introduce other new things into your routine like taking folic acid, iodine or other vitamin and mineral supplements.
