Assumption: Frequent prenatal visits with care providers helps pregnant women prevent negative outcomes and feel more confident.

TRUE
In randomized studies, women were less satisfied with the care they received when they visited with their care provider 8 or fewer times during pregnancy.

My Views:
The support and reassurance of regular prenatal visits makes a difference. Not only can your care provider recognize danger signs, help you work through difficulties, and provide health advice, but a good care provider will develop a relationship with you so you feel confident and comfortable as you look toward the adventure of giving birth!
