The staff at Consultants in Women’s Healthcare is committed to providing comprehensive prenatal care in order to promote the health and wellbeing of every mother and baby. Prenatal care is traditionally initiated 8 - 10 weeks after your last menstrual period (LMP), however we plan to individualize care appropriate for you.
At your first appointment, we will review your detailed medical and family history, perform an ultrasound confirming and dating your pregnancy, and draw labs. This can all be done in the comfort and convenience of our office. We will also discuss available genetic testing.
You will continue to see your provider every 4 weeks until 28 weeks gestation, after which point, you will be seen every 2 weeks. As your approach your due date, you are seen on a weekly basis. At every appointment, we will review your weight and blood pressure, as well as, the fetal heart rate.
Other highlights of your prenatal care include a detailed ultrasound looking at fetal anatomy around 20 weeks gestation and an oral glucose test between 24 - 28 weeks screening for gestational diabetes.
We look forward to personalizing your care throughout your pregnancy!
