Early pregnancy diagnosis is critical to the wellbeing of both the mother and child. Research has shown women who start prenatal care early in their pregnancy tend to have fewer complications and deliver healthier babies than women who delay or have inadequate prenatal care. It allows women to begin prenatal care during the most vulnerable stages of fetal development.
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department no longer provides prenatal services on site. However, we encourage you to schedule and keep prenatal appointments with area providers.
