YOu can do your own test at home, ask for a home pregnancy test at the pharmacy or just pick one up from the supermarket. Just make sure you follow the instructions. If you are asking who cares for you, in UK it may be a midwife, GP or the obstetrician at a hospital, depending on the level of care you require. In US it may be a family practitioner or an obstetrician (ob/gyn the gyn being the gynecologist, a Doctor Who looks after the abnormal side of women's reproductive systems). As I understand, you can now use a midwife in more and more states too. Midwives are people whose expertise is very much in normal pregnancy and childbirth.
