    Expecting for the first time?
    Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. But if you’re a new mom or dad it’s understandable to feel a little nervous about the physical  and emotional changes experienced during pregnancy and, afterwards, how to care for your baby son or daughter. Relax! Find the answers you need in our FAQs for First-Time Moms, FAQs for First-Time Dads.

    Your First Appointment
    At your first prenatal visit we will welcome you to the practice, interview you about your medical history, perform a physical exam and evaluate your overall health using a number of  lab screenings to rule out threats to your health and your baby’s.

    Pre-Natal Care
    Congratulations you’re expecting a baby! Consistent pre-natal care throughout your pregnancy is one of the most important ways you can love and care for your baby even before she or he is born. At Women’s Health Now, we are happy to answer your questions and fully discuss your options for pre-natal care and delivery.

    What to Expect at Your Office Visits

    Your First Appointment
    At your first prenatal visit we will welcome you to the practice, interview you about your medical history, perform a physical exam and evaluate your overall health using a number of  lab screenings to rule out threats to your health and your baby’s.

    If you are experiencing spotting or bleeding, or if you’re unsure about the date of your last menstrual period, we may schedule an ultrasound exam. We have an Ultrasound on the premises for your convenience.

    Subsequent Appointments
    Our goal at Women’s Health Now is to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy. We communicate with you one-on-one to make your pregnancy a healthy and positive experience.

    At your follow up appointment you will meet with your doctor, who will  discuss the results of the initial lab screenings and discuss the option of cord blood banking as well as  answer any questions you may have. Any treatments that may be required according to the results of the lab screenings, or because of high risk factors, will also be discussed and prescribed at this time.

    You’ll meet with your doctor once a month until the eighth month of your pregnancy, when your appointments will be scheduled every other week. Your appointments will be scheduled weekly in your ninth month.
