Pregnancy Q & A

Pavilion for Women's Health and Wellness

What is routine pregnancy care?

If you're planning to become pregnant or are already pregnant, routine prenatal care ensures you take all the appropriate steps to have a healthy and safe pregnancy and deliver a healthy baby.

Finding out that you’re pregnant is an exciting time, and the caring doctors at Pavilion for Women’s Healthand Wellness can help make your pregnancy progress as smoothly as possible. This includes helping you make healthy choices now, and while your body changes.

Everything from early testing, sonograms, genetic profiling, and nutrition are areas covered by routine obstetrics care. The team at Pavilion for Women’s Health and Wellness also offer services related to delivery, which is perhaps the most important day of your entire pregnancy journey.

 

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy can cause problems before, during, and after delivery. Some factors that may cause a high-risk prenatal situation include medical conditions that develop either before or during the pregnancy, including:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Having twins
  • Advanced maternal age

For high-risk pregnancy patients, it’s especially important to have regular prenatal care visits with your doctor. At each prenatal appointment, your physician checks your blood, urine, and weight to monitor for potential problems.

 

Which other pregnancy services are offered?

Pavilion for Women’s Health and Wellness provides an exciting, vivid way for you to see your baby during this exciting time in your life, with two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging.

Ultrasounds, which use sound waves, have been used during pregnancy for decades. They have not been found to harm the baby or mother. An ultrasound can also determine the baby’s gender at around 16 weeks.

The 2D ultrasound is a traditional method to view your baby and has been used for years. These provide a black and white image, where you can see your baby’s internal organs, such as the heart, the body position, placenta, and cord.

The 3D ultrasound scans combine numerous still images which together can show your baby’s facial features.
