At the beginning of your pregnancy, you will want to consult a doctor or a midwife to discuss your pregnancy follow-up. You have the option to give birth in several different locations (Hôpital Charles-LeMoyne, Hôpital du Haut-Richelieu, Maison de naissance du Haut-Richelieu-Rouville, or at home).
The practical guide From Tiny Tot to Toddler is given out to future parents for free and is also available online. This guide contains useful advice and information about the resources available to you, the stages of pregnancy, your baby’s development, etc. For more information, you can also visit the Portail Santé mieux-être.

Certain health problems require close follow-up to make sure your pregnancy progresses normally. The multidisciplinary team at the GARE clinic provides this follow‑up.
