     Your prenatal care should begin as soon as you realize you may be pregnant and routine visits with the midwife begin at about 10-12 weeks with an appointment every 4 weeks. Once  you reach 28 weeks, your appointments will come every 2 weeks, and at 36 weeks, you will meet with the midwife every week until delivery.

 

     Prenatal care will include regular prenatal appointments, to check vital signs of mom and baby, routine labs, and exams, such as measuring the uterus and determining positioning. The goal is to keep mom and baby healthy. This is a team effort. Good nutrition, exercise, and utilizing other preventative measures are essential for maintaining good health for both mom and baby.

 

     Each appointment will involve measuring vital signs of both mom and baby measuring your uterus and determining baby’s position. There will be plenty of time for you and your family to discuss any and all questions or concerns with your Midwife. Your prenatal visits are focused on preparing you and your family for your birth and welcoming your new baby. This may include childbirth education and/or referrals to other care providers (chiropractic, acupuncture, fear-release counseling, etc.)



     Since the goal is to provide the highest quality of care and ensure healthy mothers and babies,  Midwives are experts at identifying potential risks and complications. If an issue arises that is outside of normal, you will be referred to an obstetrician for consultation or appropriate care.  Remember, during your pregnancy, your Midwife will always be availalbe to you by phone if you have any urgent concerns.
