How to Prepare Your Health History for Your OB Visit
Thanksgiving Day is not only a time to come together with friends and family to enjoy a delicious homemade meal. It is also National Family Health History Day!
This special day encourages everyone to come together as a family and have open conversations about their health histories. Family health histories are a record of any diseases and health conditions experienced by you, your partner (the other parent), or both of your families that could potentially affect the health of your pregnancy or your baby.
Learning about both parents’ family health history will give your baby the best start possible. It can help you learn about the health of your baby even before they’re born. For these reasons, it is important to know how to record your family’s health histories and what to look for. Turn to Page 2 to learn How to Prepare Your Health History for Your OB Visit!
