Joy. A Guidebook.

Welcome to Parenthood!

This is a time that brings many feelings … joy and excitement but also worry and uncertainty. At UT Medical Center, we believe a good understanding of the process of pregnancy and the birth experience is essential. We understand that no two pregnancies are alike and our goal is to provide the highest quality of health care and a positive and rewarding experience for you and your family.

This educational manual was designed to provide you with important information about your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience at UT Medical Center. We suggest you use it during office visits, in prenatal classes and following delivery when you take your newborn baby home.

This manual is not designed to replace the care and advice of your doctor. Please refer to your doctor or nurse practitioner for specific questions.
