Your first prenatal appointment will be at 8 weeks of pregnancy. Jeanette Wolff, our Certified Nurse Midwife, will go over your prenatal schedule and answer all of your questions. This visit also includes a comprehensive exam, lab tests and discussions on lifestyle modifications to take that will ensure the health of your baby.
Most patients will be scheduled for office visits every 4 weeks until 30-32 weeks, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, then weekly until delivery.
Remember to write down any questions you may have and bring them to each appointment so we can ensure you have all the information you need to feel comfortable and confident throughout your pregnancy.
Please update your profile on our online patient portal before your next appointment.
Make sure to complete the prenatal questionnaire prior to your first prenatal visit, and come prepared with one extra copy for Capital Women's Care - Division 56/Charles Street OB/GYN to keep on file.
To help ensure the health of your baby and perform development assessments throughout your pregnancy, there are a number of prenatal tests that will be recommended in each trimester.
We will inform you as soon as possible of any abnormal test results or those requiring repeat testing or an explanation. If you would like to know the results of any other tests, you may call us two weeks after a test was done to obtain the result by telephone.
