Fertility is your ability to produce a child. Infertility is when you have had 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse and you have not become pregnant. Fertility can be affected by many things and there are also ways to increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Not being able to conceive can be distressing but talking with your doctor, counsellor or psychologist can help you to understand your options and decide what to do next. When you are pregnant, a healthy and nutritious diet, managing your weight and being aware of the things that affect your pregnancy can help you to be the healthiest you can possibly be and reduce complications such as hypertension, pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes. Alternatively, there are times when you may want to avoid a pregnancy and there are many different forms of contraception to suit each woman's own needs.

Pregnancy care consists of prenatal (before birth) and postpartum (after birth) healthcare for expectant mothers. It involves treatments and trainings to ensure a healthy prepregnancy, pregnancy, and labor and delivery for mom and baby.Prenatal care helps decrease risks during pregnancy and increases the chance of a safe and healthy delivery. Regular prenatal visits can help your doctor monitor your pregnancy and identify any problems or complications before they become serious. Babies born to mothers who lack prenatal care have triple the chance of being born at a low birth weight. Newborns with low birth weight are five times more likely to die than those whose mothers received prenatal care.

Pediatricians work in hospitals and children's hospitals particularly those working in its subspecialties, and as outpatient primary care physicians.
