What can I expect during routine pregnancy appointments?

During pregnancy visits to Progressive Women's Healthcare, a provider weighs you, checks your blood pressure and other vital signs, and reviews your symptoms and medical history.

They may have you complete a pregnancy test, blood testing, or a Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer. During a physical exam, your specialist may listen to you and your baby’s heartbeat, measure your abdomen, or complete an ultrasound. 

You might be a candidate for diabetes screening or genetic testing. Your provider discusses your nutritional habits and may recommend changes or dietary supplements to give you and your baby the best chance to thrive.

It’s also vital to avoid smoking, drinking, and taking certain medications while pregnant.

They work closely with you to develop a labor and delivery plan, including a water birth option if you choose it. 

How often should I schedule pregnancy visits?

Schedule pregnancy appointments at Progressive Women's Healthcare as directed by your provider. Initially, you might see your specialist monthly, followed by visits every two weeks, and weekly after that. 

High-risk pregnancies require more frequent medical monitoring than low-risk pregnancies. Your pregnancy is considered high-risk if you’re aged 35 or older or a teenager, carry excess body weight, have a chronic disease, or are pregnant with multiples. You might also be considered high risk if you have a history of miscarriages.
