What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is preventive healthcare during a woman’s pregnancy. It helps to prevent and identify potential health problems through regular checkups with an obstetrician. These regular visits throughout pregnancy allow doctors to treat any problems as they occur and take precautionary steps for the day of the delivery.
Prenatal care helps expectant mothers and their partners understand the importance of maintaining a stress-free and healthy pregnancy. Your obstetrician will guide you and your partner throughout this journey and answer any questions you may have regarding your pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. Having a skilled professional available to address all of your concerns is an extremely important aspect to remaining stress-free! Healthy eating, exercise, and a good night’s sleep are important for a healthy prenatal course for all women.
Prenatal care is also important for expectant mothers with preexisting conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc., to prevent more serious complications during pregnancy.
Prenatal care at our practice is vital to the health of a developing fetus. In addition to educating pregnant women, our doctors will also provide you with prenatal vitamins. Prenatal vitamins contain high levels of folic acid, which, reduce the risk for neural tube defects by a whopping 70%. Taking prenatal vitamins is one important action an expectant mother can take in fostering development during the pregnancy.
After your pregnancy confirmation appointment, we will schedule regular checkups with you through your pregnancy to ensure a healthy mom and baby!

  • My Husband and I absolutely love The practice and all the doctors. From our first appointment when we found out we were having twins to the delivery and finally to our after care.

  • I’m a worried individual by nature. When I became pregnant every little thing bothered me. All of the Doctors made me feel comfortable. Dr Sansobrino in particular, knew about my anxiety and he never made me feel embarrassed or silly for my questions. I had an amazing pregnancy experience thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff at Women’s First . My daughter was delivered by Dr. Youngren. She talked me through the process and eased my fears. I would and I do, highly recommend WFH to all my f…
