ACOG is also the most trusted resource amongst OB-GYNs. The organization's website includes an extensive list of easy to read, Q&A style documents for a wide range of questions that arise during pregnancy. We've included links to ACOG articles that address some of our most frequently asked questions. Peruse these and other topics in their 'For Patients' FAQ section. Happy reading!
