Your first visit is usually the most important visit for your pregnancy. It is ideal though not essential that both you and your partner attend this visit. Please allow approximately 45 minutes for this visit. During this visit I will ask you questions about your helath and your pregnancy, perform a physical check-up, and do an ultrasound of your baby. I will also discuss with you and arrange any further testing that needs to be done.
During your first visit I will discuss with you your medical history, any previous pregnancies you have had, and any concerns you have about your current pregnancy. If you have significant past or current health issues, or if you have had previous pregnancies, the more information you provide about those events, the better. For particularly complex problems, if you have hospital discharge summaries or letters from specialists, please bring these along
Things you will need to bring to your first visit:
Subsequent visits are usually shorter - approximately 15 minutes. Assuming your pregnancy is progressing smoohly, I will normally see you approximately once per month up until about 24 weeks gestation. From 24-36 weeks I will see you every 2-3 weeks, and then it is usually weekly until the birth. Of course if your pregnancy is more complicated, or problems delelop as the pregnancy progresses, the frequency and timing of these visits may need to cahnge accordingly.
I will also see you for a checkup after the baby is born. Usually this takes place approximately 6 weeks after the birth.
