Follow-up pre-natal visits occur about every four weeks during the first two trimesters in order to check a patient’s blood pressure and weight. As the second trimester begins, an examination often allows for the mother to hear her child’s heartbeat. In the third trimester the frequency of prenatal visits increases. In the last weeks of pregnancy patients will be seen weekly. These visits allow time for the patient to ask any questions she might have.
Patient’s are always encouraged to ask any questions they might have regardless of how uncomfortable or embarrassing they may be. Help is always available whenever our patients need it.
High-risk Obstetrical Care
Throughout your pregnancy, our team monitors the growth and development of your baby. Over the nine months, at routine visits, your obstetrician will check your weight, monitor hormones and assess your baby’s progress. We use advanced sonography, and our trained staff will update you throughout the stages of pregnancy. Although you may face nothing more than swollen ankles and morning sickness during this time, our physicians have the expert training to address any additional issues that arise, including complications from advanced maternal age, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes and pre-term labor.
