Visit Schedule

Your obstetrical visits will typically begin with your first missed period or with a positive home pregnancy test. 

First Visit (suspected pregnancy):

This visit will confirm your pregnancy and calculate your approximate due date.  Your next visit will be set up.

Initial Obstetrics visit:

This visit will be with a Nurse Practitioner and can be expected to last 1 hour or longer.  Lab work will be performed and an ultrasound to coincide when you are approximately 9 to 12 weeks pregnant will be scheduled.  You will also receive information about nutrition, exercise, and pregnancy.  A medical and physical exam will be performed as part of this visit.  Financial services staff will discuss the financial aspects of care with you. 

Second Obstetrics visit:

Your second obstetrical visit will coincide with weeks 11 to 13 of your pregnancy.  You will see your doctor to review your laboratory tests, discuss any prenatal testing, and have a physical exam.

Subsequent visits:

You will visit your doctor monthly as your pregnancy progresses.
