Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy care, also known as prenatal care, is a crucial aspect of ensuring the health and well-being of both the mother and the developing foetus during pregnancy. Prenatal care involves a series of medical check-ups, screenings, and education to monitor the progress of the pregnancy, identify and address potential issues, and promote a healthy outcome for the mother and baby.

What to Expect

Kirrawee Doctors provides multiple appointments to evaluate the health of you and your baby.

  • Early Prenatal Visits: During the first prenatal visit, your healthcare provider confirms the pregnancy, discusses medical history, performs a physical exam, and outlines the basic aspects of prenatal care.
  • Ultrasound Exams: These are performed at various points during the pregnancy to visualise the foetus, confirm gestational age, and assess the baby’s growth and development.
  • Blood Tests: Blood tests are conducted to assess your overall health, screen for conditions such as anaemia, and identify potential risks.
  • Regular Check-ups: Monthly check-ups are recommended to monitor vital signs, assess foetal growth, address any concerns and questions, provide guidance on nutritional and physical activity, monitor and manage health conditions, discuss birth plans, offer emotional support, and provide education on topics such as labour and delivery, breastfeeding, postpartum care, and newborn care.

When to Book an Appointment

It’s best to seek pregnancy care as early as possible. Once you either think or know you’re pregnant, schedule an appointment with Kirrawee Doctors who will be able to support and guide you on your journey to parenthood.
