Prenatal visits incorporate several services like physical exams and tests to make sure that future moms will have healthy pregnancies.
The importance of prenatal care will usually be stressed during the very first visit. Your doctor will discuss your and your partner’s medical history, along with your family’s medical history.
During the initial visit, when starting prenatal care, you will get a complete checkup along with blood and urine tests to assess your health.
Apart from that, during prenatal doctor visits, you might also get:
- Your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and breathing measured
- May might get a breast exam
- A Pap test
- A pelvic exam
- STD tests
- Screening tests for other conditions like rubella, hepatitis B, diabetes, and anemia
