From the very moment of fertilization, a series of important physical and psychical changes are beginning to take place in the woman's body, destined to adapt to the new situation and will continue for the next nine months. It is necessary for women to accept and know how to carry out these transformations as well as possible, because it is up to this vital period to become an unrepeatable and immense experience, the fruit of which is the creation of a new life.  All women need care and care during pregnancy. Prenatal care helps pregnant women become healthier and have fewer problems during labor and delivery. This should be the responsibility of the woman herself, her family and her community and the health professional.  Abbott offers alternatives for women with difficult fertility and comprehensive management during all stages of pregnancy.
