During prenatal care, your visits include checking blood pressure, the baby’s growth and position, as well as heart rate, and routine lab tests, with referrals for ultrasounds and genetic testing as necessary. They also offer information about community programs and resources and consult on nutrition, sleep, and other factors affecting your health and comfort during pregnancy. These visits usually last up to an hour and occur every month until 28 weeks and then weekly after that.
During active labor, care includes monitoring your blood pressure, pulse, and temperature, assessing the dilation of your cervix, monitoring labor contractions and the baby’s heart rate, providing emotional and physical support, and of course, delivering your baby.
