Pregnancy Q&A

What is prenatal care during pregnancy?

Pregnancy and prenatal care go hand in hand. Prenatal care refers to the medical care you need while pregnant to ensure good health for you and your baby right from the start. 


It includes checkups, exams, and prenatal testing. The Women's Health Group, P.A. team may order in-house lab tests such as blood and urine samples. They will also help you to schedule your ultrasound.


During your evaluation, The Women's Health Group, P.A. team reviews your medical and gynecological history and provides recommendations on what you need to do to improve the health of you and your baby during your pregnancy.

What can I expect during my first prenatal visit?

During your first prenatal visit, you will meet with The Women's Health Group, P.A.’s new OB Coordinator who will review your medical and gynecological history and your partner’s medical history. 


They usually conduct an early ultrasound during this visit to verify your due date. After meeting with your nurse, you will complete the required New OB labs. You can expect to spend about an hour in our office for this first visit.


Based on that information, the team reviews what you can expect during prenatal care, such as:


  • Frequency of your visits
  • Blood tests and urine tests you may need and when
  • Whether you should undergo genetic testing
  • When to schedule your ultrasound


During prenatal visits, tests are performed on both the mother and the baby to assess potential pregnancy risks and treat any maternal or fetal complications.


The team also provides recommendations regarding diet and exercise and may recommend a prenatal vitamin.

When should I make my first pregnancy appointment?

Your first pregnancy appointment depends on your personal health needs. Generally, the first prenatal visit with an OB/GYN is scheduled ten weeks after your last menstrual period.


During your first visit to The Women's Health Group, P.A., the team can conduct in-house lab testing and other tests to confirm your pregnancy.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy means there’s concern about the health of you or your baby during the gestational period. Your pregnancy may be considered high-risk if:


  • You have a chronic health condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure
  • You’re overweight or obese
  • You’re carrying twins or triplets
  • You’re a teen or over the age of 35


The team at  The Women's Health Group, P.A. can provide the expert care you need to ensure a healthy pregnancy from the start.
