Medical experts say that if you are planning to get pregnant, you should see your doctor before you conceive to go over health history, risk factors, illnesses and see if there are any immunizations you need first.

Also, there are certain vitamins and nutrients you need before getting pregnant, such as folic acid to prevent birth defects.

It's best to write down the questions you have for your doctor so you don't forget to ask them during your visit.

According to the March of Dimes, nearly 5,000 Kansas babies are born pre-term every year, which can lead to serious health risks for the baby.
