Regular scheduled visits in our clinic allows time for physical assessment, questions, discussion & teaching on topics such as nutrition, discomforts of pregnancy, prenatal classes, and signs of labor & baby care.
Initial appointments are usually 1 hour and includes a complete history and physical assessment, including pap smear, lab work, nutrition/lifestyle counseling, as well as time for any questions. Subsequent visits are generally 30 minutes in length. During each visit, the health of you and your baby will be carefully assessed by evaluating physical changes such as:
- Weight gain
- Blood Pressure
- Lab values
- Uterine growth
- Baby’s heartbeat and movement
- Laboratory and diagnostic tests (such as ultrasounds)
