FAQ

Prenatal care is a set of medical tests and exams that are performed during pregnancy to ensure the health of the mother and baby. It is important to start prenatal care early in pregnancy, ideally within the first 12 weeks.

There are two main types of prenatal care:

  • Regular prenatal care: This is the most common type of prenatal care. It involves regular visits to a doctor or midwife, typically every four to six weeks during the first two trimesters and every two weeks during the third trimester.
  • High-risk prenatal care: This type of prenatal care is for women who have a higher risk of complications during pregnancy, such as women who are older, have a chronic health condition, or have had a previous pregnancy with complications. High-risk prenatal care typically involves more frequent visits to the doctor or midwife.

A typical prenatal care visit will include the following:

  • A physical exam: The doctor or midwife will check your height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. They may also listen to your baby's heartbeat.
  • A pelvic exam: The doctor or midwife will examine your vagina and cervix.
  • Blood tests: The doctor or midwife will take blood samples to test for various infections, such as HIV and syphilis. They may also test your blood type and Rh factor.
  • Urine tests: The doctor or midwife will collect a urine sample to test for infections, such as urinary tract infections.
  • Ultrasound: The doctor or midwife may perform an ultrasound to check the baby's development.
  • Discussion of your pregnancy: The doctor or midwife will discuss your pregnancy with you, including your health, your baby's development, and any concerns you may have.

It is ideal to start prenatal care within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. However, even if you are past the 12-week mark, it is still important to start prenatal care as soon as possible.

There are many resources available to help women who do not have insurance pay for prenatal care. You can contact your local health department or women's health clinic to find out about these resources.

It is important to ask your doctor any questions you have about prenatal care. They are there to help you and answer your questions.
