In brief: Of course!!!!!!!!!!!

Why would you want to take a chance with your well being or the well being of your unborn child, nature does not always work right, you can have a pregnancy complication for no good reason, please see a board certified obgyn for care either by the doc or the midwife who works for the doc - not an independent midwife, and make sure u deliver in a hospital, this is 2013 not 1813.

Women who receive no prenatal care have a higher rate of death and/or complications for themselves and the baby.
