Prenatal Care Q&A

What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is comprehensive medical care during your pregnancy. It’s a proven way to protect your baby and yourself. Lack of prenatal care triples the risk of low birth weight, and babies born to moms who didn’t receive prenatal care are five times more likely to die. 

Fortunately, excellent prenatal care is easily accessible in the boutique-like NY Midtown OB/GYN offices. 

What does prenatal care include?

The ultimate goal of prenatal care is to help you have a healthy pregnancy and full-term baby. Prenatal care includes:

  • Pregnancy confirmation
  • Fetal ultrasounds
  • Blood and urine testing
  • Tracking your baby’s growth and development
  • Medication management 
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Education about labor and delivery
  • Planning for labor and delivery

Women with high-risk pregnancies (in general, women over age 35 or those with other specific risk factors) may need additional types of specialized care during their pregnancy. 

Are pre-pregnancy planning and prenatal care the same thing?

No, pre-pregnancy planning starts when you’re planning to try to conceive but aren’t yet pregnant. It helps set you up for the successful conception of a healthy baby. Then, you’ll transition to prenatal care once you’re pregnant.

How often do I need to have prenatal care?

You’ll have a personalized schedule of prenatal care visits at NY Midtown OB/GYN. Generally, this includes monthly visits up to 28 weeks, twice-monthly appointments up to 36 weeks, and weekly visits from week 36 to your baby’s birth. 

In the last trimester, the more frequent appointments are particularly important because they help you better prepare for labor and birth.  

How does prenatal care help with labor and delivery planning?

Through excellent prenatal care, the NY Midtown OB/GYN team strives to help you have the birth story you want, whether it’s a vaginal birth, Cesarean (C-section) birth, or vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC). 

The specifics of your birth and delivery are up to you, and the team educates you about your options and supports you in making the choices that serve you and your baby best.

The team is renowned for its high success rate with VBAC, twin vaginal deliveries, and operative vaginal deliveries, but they’re equally equipped to skillfully perform C-sections where necessary.
