The physicians at Moreland OB-GYN believe in providing newly pregnant women the information they need and providing an early assessment of their pregnancy. We do this by having each pregnant woman participate in a Pregnancy Consult appointment with one of our specially trained RN’s. This visit unique to Moreland OB-GYN occurs prior to the doctor consultation appointment.
At the first visit, you’ll discuss your estimated due date — about 266 days from the first day of your last menstrual cycle — and any abnormal results from your screening lab.At about 10 - 12 weeks, you’ll have your first prenatal visit with your doctor. At this visit, your doctor will take a full health history to identify any possible complications that could affect your care and/or delivery. Your doctor will generally perform a pelvic examination, take your vitals, check your weight, and screen for risk factors like anemia. Following this initial appointment, you should expect to see your doctor once a month throughout this first trimester.
We are able to answer any questions you may have at this or any visit. This first visit with your doctor will include a physical examination that includes a pelvic exam and listening for the baby’s heartbeat. At the end of the visit, we will determine when your next appointment should be scheduled.
