I have been reading a book about Henry VIII and there is a lot of talk about how few babies lived to be born live or to survive any amount of time. As I was reading, I was thinking how lucky we are to have the prenatal care that we have in this day and age.
Many of these women would not even know they were pregnant for sure until they could feel the baby move. So, in some cases the woman could be pregnant for months before she knew for sure she was even pregnant. I think one of the biggest advances in prenatal care is how early we can detect pregnancies today.
What do you all feel is one of the most important advances in prenatal care?
