Pregnancy follow-up

CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, you will want to consult a doctor or a healthcare professional to discuss your pregnancy follow-up. Your doctor will decide which hospital you will give birth at.

You will also be given a useful guide for parents called From Tiny Tot to Toddler. This free guide contains useful advice and information about the resources available to you, the stages of pregnancy, your baby’s development, etc. Visit the Portail santé mieux‑être for more information.

High-risk pregnancy (GARE) 

If your doctor detects a problem with your pregnancy during your prenatal visits, they will refer you to a gynecologist or an obstetrician. Certain health problems require close monitoring during pregnancy to make sure no complications arise. The multidisciplinary team at the GARE clinic will provide this follow-up.
