8 Resources For Pregnancy Info When It’s Too Late to Call Your Doctor

Best Resources For Pregnancy Info When It's Too Late to Call Your DoctorPregnancy bring with it a lot of questions and it can be a nerve-racking experience for many of us. With all the changes that happen we are all bound to have a lot of questions along the way.

A good indication of a great care provider is one who will take the time and answer any questions that come up. A doctor (or midwife) who treats your questions as important can make a big difference in your comfort level and is an important aspect of prenatal care.

There are times though that your doctor may be unavailable (like at 3 am) when an important question comes up. “Can I take this medication for a cold?” “Do other people have terrible gas while pregnant?” — no such thing as a silly question.

Good thing is that in this day and age there are other resources beyond just our doctor/midwife who can ease our minds and help us make things more clear.

Click through for 8 resources that are good to check when you can’t call your doctor:
