Since a large part of Dr. Halfon’s job as an obstetrician is to look after the health of both you and your baby during your pregnancy, he accomplishes this through comprehensive prenatal care.
Prenatal care ensures that your baby meets critical developmental milestones and that your pregnancy progresses without problems.
Prenatal care begins the moment you decide you want to get pregnant. Once you’ve made that decision, Dr. Halfon performs a physical examination and recommends lifestyle changes and supplements to boost your chances of conceiving.
Once you receive the good news, prenatal care kicks into high gear and includes:
- Regular checkups throughout your pregnancy
- Regular testing and imaging, such as blood work and ultrasounds
- Medication monitoring
- Supplement and nutrition recommendations
One of the most significant advantages of good prenatal care is that Dr. Halfon can spot potential risks or problems and monitor them throughout your pregnancy. This preventive care is invaluable in catching and addressing issues before they potentially threaten you or your baby.
