Pregnant woman, with man, meets with doctor

When you are pregnant, it is important to talk with your health care provider about your pregnancy risks, your birth plan, and any concerns you may have. Your health, your unborn baby's health, and where you live will determine the best place for your baby to be born. If you have a pregnancy complication, you may need to have your baby at a hospital with higher levels of specialty care or services.

When babies have serious health problems they may need to spend time in a hospital's newborn intensive care unit (NICU). If the hospital where you deliver does not have a NICU, you and/or your baby may need to be moved to a different hospital. Learn more about NICUs and care after NICU.
