What happens during a prenatal exam?

Prenatal exams and routine obstetric care are critically important not just for the health of the baby, but for the health of the mother as well. During the exam, your weight will be recorded and your belly will be measured to monitor the growth of the developing baby. You may need to provide a urine sample for analysis and blood work may also be ordered. At certain points during the pregnancy, ultrasounds will be performed to ensure your pregnancy is progressing normally. You'll be asked about any symptoms you may be experiencing, and you'll also be given guidance with regard to what changes to expect in the coming weeks, as well as lifestyle guidance to ensure you and your baby stay healthy.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy is a pregnancy where either you or the baby (or both of you) have a medical condition that could have an impact on pregnancy or delivery (or both). Some conditions that constitute or contribute to high-risk pregnancies include:

  • having high blood pressure or diabetes before pregnancy

  • developing high blood pressure or diabetes (gestational diabetes) during pregnancy

  • smoking

  • obesity

  • older age

  • having had several previous miscarriages

  • alcohol or drug use

How often do I need to schedule my prenatal exams?

Unless you have a high-risk pregnancy, you'll have exams every month for the first 28 weeks, then every two weeks until you reach the 36th week of pregnancy. After that, your visits will occur every week until the baby is delivered. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you'll probably need to have more frequent office visits to monitor your health and the baby's health.

How can I stay healthy during pregnancy?

The best ways to stay healthy are by eating a healthy diet, quitting smoking, getting plenty of regular exercise and rest, and keeping all your prenatal visits.
