Information for your Pregnancy
Having a baby is a wonderful, personal experience. Whether you’re starting your family or expanding it, you deserve the best. Choose Genesis Health Group, OB/GYN for your prenatal care.
Once you find out you are pregnant, you will need to call our office to schedule your first prenatal visit. All prenatal care is based on the date your baby is due, called your due date. This date is based on the first day of your last period. If you are uncertain of this date or have irregular menstrual periods, a dating ultrasound may be ordered.
A typical schedule for routine prenatal visits includes:
- One visit per month until 28 weeks
- Two visits per month for 28-36 weeks
- Weekly visits from 36 weeks to delivery
Your visits will include a series of screening and diagnostic tests. Genetic counseling services are available and will be recommended if needed. We will also work with you to develop a birth plan, which will communicate your preferences for your birth experience.
