Prenatal Care and Delivery

Prenatal care is vital to the overall health of any pregnancy, for both the mother and the baby. Prenatal care involves a variety of visits, physical exams, blood tests, and conversations.

During the first visit, the provider will ask a series of questions and do some basic exams to understand how far along the pregnancy is and look for any potential for a high-risk pregnancy. As the pregnancy progresses, more examinations, ultrasounds, and tests will be recommended based on the specific needs of the pregnancy.

In the weeks leading up to delivery, the pediatric care provider will begin discussing the details of a successful delivery. They will make recommendations on delivery methods and may even recommend bed rest for mothers with high risk pregnancies.
