The Third Trimester of Pregnancy
During the third trimester, you will begin to make provisions for life after pregnancy with your new baby. This section will provide a diagram of your body and your baby at this stage, discuss what to expect during prenatal visits, interviewing and selecting a health care provider for your baby, and how to plan for bringing your baby home (if you did not have a home birth). We have created "Questions for You to Ask your Baby's Potential Care Provider", in addition to providing you with a contact list for finding local pediatric health providers.
