Prenatal Care

Pregnant women will receive free screenings for gestational diabetes, high blood sugar that some women experience during their pregnancy, which increases a woman's risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in the future. Health services already provided under the health care law include folic acid supplements for women who may become pregnant, Hepatitis B screening for pregnant women and anemia screening for pregnant women.
