What kinds of pregnancy care are available?
For many women, infertility complicates the path to motherhood. Dr. Ginsburg can help you ensure your body is ready for the challenges of pregnancy, and she can work with you to address infertility issues.
Pregnancy care ideally begins as soon as you learn you’re expecting. These early visits are a great way to get the guidance and support needed to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible.
Dr. Ginsburg has the skills and experience needed to deliver a range of pregnancy services. She helps track your progress as you move closer to your due date and delivers the screenings needed along the way.
If your pregnancy is deemed high risk, Dr. Ginsburg advises you on what steps to take to prevent complications for you or your little one. While high-risk pregnancies require special care, many mothers and babies emerge in great health.
Why are prenatal visits so important?
Prenatal care visits are the setting in which you receive the screenings needed to track your health and your baby’s development. They are customized to meet your specific needs and allow Dr. Ginsburg to shape your care accordingly.
Screenings can include checks for gestational diabetes, overall nutrition, genetic abnormalities, and more. Each time you come in for prenatal care your weight and abdomen are measured to help track your baby’s development.
Expect routine checks of your blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, and other basic functions. Blood work is done in the early stages of pregnancy and might be repeated if more information is required as you near your due date.
What topics can I discuss during prenatal care visits?
Time is built into each prenatal care visit for a discussion with Dr. Ginsburg. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about your pregnancy or what to expect during delivery.
There are no topics off-limits, and you’re encouraged to share your concerns or ask any questions you like. Some of the more common topics during prenatal care include:
- Sleep quality
- Sexual health during pregnancy
- Birth control after pregnancy
- Weight gain
- Abnormal bleeding
- Signs of potential complications
Of course, questions about what to expect during the delivery process are often an area of focus. While childbirth can be unpredictable, Dr. Ginsburg works closely with you to help you learn what to expect and how the process is likely to proceed.
Call to book a prenatal care visit as soon as you learn you’re expecting. You can also use the online booking page to find a time that fits your schedule.
