This is Abby. She's a birth mother who placed her son for adoption not too long ago. Want to learn more about her? Read this. For now, she's answering this common question:
"How often do I need to go to the doctor during pregnancy?"
Just like any pregnancy, prenatal care is important and you should go to the doctor as soon as possible once you figure out that you are pregnant. If you have chosen adoption, you will still need to go to the doctor just as often as you would for a normal pregnancy and if you end up being in a high-risk pregnancy, the amount of doctor's visits you need to have might increase.
