Getting Your Pregnancy Passport

Perinatal Services



Pregnancy is a special kind of journey - and you can get a special kind of passport to help.

Pregnancy Passport

Our Special Journey: Pregnancy Passport is a booklet to support you in having a healthy pregnancy, tracking your progress, and preparing for your baby.

The Pregnancy Passport includes:

  • information for you to think about and discuss with your care provider relating to your needs throughout your pregnancy, birth, and after your baby is born;
  • information about the care you can expect during pregnancy, birth, and the first weeks after your baby's birth;
  • a place to record check-ups and tests;
  • places to write down goals, questions, ideas, decisions, and hope and dreams for her baby; and
  • a list of resources for more information.

The Pregnancy Passport is published by Perinatal Services BC in partnership with the Ministry of Health and health authorities. The Pregnancy Passport is a companion to Baby's Best Chance.
