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.
