The importance of your first prenatal visit

Congratulations – you are going to be a mother! Like most mothers, you hope for a relatively easy, uneventful pregnancy and a healthy baby. Your first prenatal visit helps to create ideal conditions to achieve that goal.

First timers

This appointment will likely be the longest one of your pregnancy, because it provides a wealth of information. I gather health, medical, and family data to determine whether you might be in a high-risk pregnancy category. I know that new mothers (and their partners) have a lot of questions. Please bring a list, and I’ll do my best to answer them. This visit is your introduction to prenatal care, and a chance to start thinking about birthing options.

Already a mom?

It is a common misconception that prenatal care is only for new mothers. It is vitally important for all expectant women. Every pregnancy is different. Your age has changed, and your health status or lifestyle may be different from when your last child was born. In addition, new tests, screening methods, and technologies are continually evolving to better monitor your health and your baby’s development.

Morals and medicine

Some people have strong convictions about accepting their gift of a child in whatever condition the powers that be see fit to create it. I respect the religious and moral stance of my patients. Prenatal care and testing is not intended to deter you from those beliefs. Rather, it gives you and me the opportunity to discuss and plan for your child’s safe delivery. Knowing what to expect allows me to be prepared with the right equipment, medications, and specialists if necessary.

While each subsequent appointment will get more exciting, none is more important to the outcome of your pregnancy than your first prenatal visit. Call Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine at 855 346 8610 to schedule.

Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine - reviews

I believe that superb service must not go unnoticed. I started prenatal care in my third trimester with Dr. Jenkins and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. He was extremely professional and his bedside manner was A+. He is very genuine and it is evident that he is passionate about what he does. I am grateful to have had such an amazing experience, during this pregnancy, with Dr. Jekins and his staff.
