Pregnancy Q & A
Why are prenatal care appointments necessary?
Prenatal care is essential to a healthy pregnancy. These appointments give you and your obstetrician important information about how your pregnancy is progressing and help address any issues that arise early. Prenatal visits are also your opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you have regarding pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care.
How do I choose the right obstetrician?
Partnering with an experienced, compassionate obstetrician can make a world of difference in your journey to motherhood. It’s a relationship that will last far beyond your pregnancy, so finding the right match is important.
At Unified Premier Women’s Care, you’ll find specialists willing to take the time to sit down with you and get to know your specific needs. You’re always welcome to call or come in to have your concerns addressed. Choosing an obstetrician you feel comfortable with is important, so take the time to book a consultation to meet with the Unified Premier Women’s Care team.
What happens during prenatal visits?
No two pregnancies are ever exactly alike, and your prenatal care centers on your unique set of needs. The initial visit with your Unified Premier Women’s Care obstetrician will focus more on your current health, your personal and family medical history, and your lifestyle. A complete physical exam provides the information needed to guide your care.
Establishing your due date is another important part of your prenatal care. Later in your pregnancy, Unified Premier Women’s Care offers 3D and 4D ultrasound, which can give you a clearer picture of what your baby looks like, and can also identify areas of concern. The latest forms of genetic testing are also available.
If you develop hypertension, gestational diabetes, or any other pregnancy-related issue, your care will focus on meeting those needs.
Should I attend childbirth classes?
Knowing what to expect can ease your anxieties about the delivery process, especially if this is your first child. Unified Premier Women’s Care offers childbirth classes to help you prepare for your special day.
Classes explore various delivery methods and labor techniques, helping you create a birth plan that aligns with your needs and goals. You’ll also learn about ways to prepare to bring your child into the world. These real-world tips can help you feel more in control of the labor and delivery process, which can make the experience far less stressful for you and your partner.
