Prenatal care is a critical part of pregnancy. The prenatal milestones and early screenings allow for proper care and early intervention ensuring a safe delivery for both mother and baby. Each pregnancy is unique, and prenatal care is important regardless of whether you’re expecting your first child or your fourth.
Advancements in medical technology have broadened the scope of what can be learned about your baby’s health during your pregnancy. Your screening needs are the unique result of your age, ethnicity, health history, and the results of routine tests performed in the earliest stages of your pregnancy.
Screenings assess the health of both mother and developing baby. For the mother, certain ethnic backgrounds and family history of genetic abnormalities may warrant genetic screening on the mother and father of the baby to determine risk to the baby. For the baby, early screening of the anatomy and periodic growth may warrant early intervention and or counseling from a high risk pregnancy specialist and neonatologist.
If your obstetrician determines you have a high-risk pregnancy, there’s no need for panic. A high-risk pregnancy simply means that you’ll need closer and more frequent monitoring to ensure you and your baby remain healthy. Drs. Antonio and Alekseyeva have been well trained and are knowledgeable and experienced obstetricians when it comes to high-risk pregnancies. Many women safely deliver healthy babies after a high-risk pregnancy
