Our philosophy emphasizes a very personal, individualized approach to your obstetrical care. While many aspects of pregnancy are applicable to all patients, we recognize that each woman is unique.
During the first trimester, you will have an initial visit with one of our nursing staff to gather important information about your pregnancy and medical history. At your first appointment with the doctor, an ultrasound will typically be conducted, and blood tests will be administered. You may also be offered early, non-invasive genetic screening.
You can access the PATIENT PACK collection of documents to view the information that will be provided to you during your initial visit.
You will be seen every month during this stage of your pregnancy. At approximately 24 weeks, we perform an ultrasound in our office to evaluate the baby’s anatomy. If the baby is in the correct position, it may be possible to see the baby's gender. Our sonographer can share that information with you if you desire to know. EVERY PREGNANCY IS DIFFERENT - We are here to listen to your concerns and will work together with you for a successful pregnancy and healthy baby.
At 28 weeks of your pregnancy, your visits will be every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, when you will be seen weekly. At 28 weeks, we will screen for gestational diabetes routinely. At 36 weeks, a vaginal culture will be obtained to screen for a bacterium called Group B Streptococcus.
Throughout your pregnancy, we are here to partner with you in communication and planning for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Should you have any questions during your visits, we welcome you to visit with our nursing staff or physicians.
