In order to receive prenatal care at RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics you need to establish yourself as a patient. At your first appointment we will schedule a pregnancy test and if the test is positive we will confirm your pregnancy through an ultrasound exam.
Your prenatal visit will generally be around 8 -10 weeks after your LMP (last menstrual period). Getting early and regular prenatal care improves the chances of a healthy pregnancy for you and your baby. During your visit the Obstetrician or Nurse Practitioner will order lab work, perform a urinalysis, physical exam, and an ultrasound if necessary. They will also educate you on managing a healthy pregnancy.
Through the prenatal care services offered by RealOptions, you stay educated on the health of your pregnancy, receive further education on what to expect, management of complications, and answers to your questions.
Even if you are not a first-time mother, prenatal visits are still important since every pregnancy is different. This initial visit will probably be one of the longest. It will be helpful if you arrive prepared with important dates and information. This is also a good opportunity to bring a list of questions that you and your partner have about your pregnancy, prenatal care, and birth options.
What to Expect at Your First Pregnancy Appointment
Your healthcare provider will ask for your medical history, including:
- Medical and/or psychosocial problems
