Welcome to another episode covering Spanish for Prenatal Care. While studying at the San Pedro Spanish School, my friend Sonja and I interviewed a family practice doctor from San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Francisco Méndez about the timing of prenatal care visits and high-risk pregnancy in Spanish.
While making this lesson, Eliza and I referred to information in Spanish from the NIH website: ¿Cómo puedo promover un embarazo saludable?

Using the Subjunctive to Ask About Existence4:27
¿Hay algunos casos de embarazos de alto riesgo que no pueda atender aquí?
Are there any cases of high-risk pregnancies that you can not care of here?
¿Hay algunos casos de embarazos de alto riesgo que necesiten ir a otro lado?
Are there any cases that need to go somewhere else here?
As I am asking a question about the existence of something, I use the subjunctive here. We practice this use of the subjunctive in the free lesson Quiz # 3 – The Subjunctive in Adjective Clauses and the premium lesson Subj08 Nonexistent Nouns, available to Spanish Grammar members.
