As an OBGYN in the Fulshear area, Dr. Jenkins provides care through every phase of your life from preconception to after baby’s birth.
Obstetricians specialize in care for pregnant women, while gynecologists offer comprehensive services for women. Your OBGYN will be with you through every step.
Care before you become pregnant improves your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and healthy child. Dr. Jenkins will discuss many factors that influence the health of you, your partner, and baby, including:
Dr. Jenkins generally suggests monthly visits up to 28 weeks, followed by bi-weekly visits to the 36th week and weekly visits to birth.
While he encourages proper planning before you become pregnant, tests may be ordered to monitor your health and that of your unborn child. Ultrasounds assess how baby is growing and a due date. Gestational diabetes affects anywhere from 4 to 10 percent of all pregnancies. This complication can be diagnosed with glucose tests. Other tests check for how baby’s heart is functioning, birth defects, and sexually transmitted diseases. While morning sickness, vaginal bleeding, skin and hair changes, and insomnia are common, it’s important to discuss any problems that bother you during regular visits.
It’s critical to follow doctor’s instructions for the days following the birth of your baby. A postpartum visit is scheduled in the weeks afterward. Diet, fitness, sex, and birth control will be discussed, because regaining a healthy weight and lifestyle helps you be the best caregiver for your child during these critical developmental phases. The doctor will discuss and monitor for conditions such as postpartum thyroiditis.
Regardless of where you’re at in the “process,” call 855-346-8610 to schedule a visit.
