Woman And Infants
Obstetrics and Consultative Medicine at Women & Infants of Providence RI is recognized worldwide for our focus on caring for women with medical conditions during their pregancy, birth, and journey into motherhood. Show Your Love - Preconception Health
Women & Infants Hospital is participating in Show Your Love, a new national campaign developed by the Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative (PHHCI) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to help women prepare for healthy pregnancies. Launched on Valentine’s Day, the campaign’s message points out that if a woman chooses to have a child, she can “show love” for her child by first loving herself through the adoption of healthy habits well before becoming pregnant.
Show Your Love

Preconception health and health care focuses on taking steps now to protect the health of a baby in the future. As part of the Show Your Love campaign, a number of resources have been created by the CDC to help educate women who are planning a pregnancy and to increase awareness about these important issues.

Use this checklist to set goals you can discuss with a doctor or health care provider.
