The Primary Care RN will be involved in your care along with your Family Physician. In addition to hands-on-care, she will be able to support women through phone access, education and referrals regarding pregnancy and childbirth.
What to expect: During your pregnancy you will have approximately 14 routine appointments at our clinic. Your first visit includes a complete physical exam. Visits then occur monthly until 28 weeks, every 2-3 weeks until 36 weeks, then weekly until you deliver. You may need to be seen more frequently if any concerns or complications arise.
At each visit you will have measurements of your weight, blood pressure, fetal heart rate and size of your uterus. You will receive requisitions for routine labwork and ultrasounds as needed. We will also ensure that your referrals and education needs are coordinated with your routine prenatal visits.
Your spouse and/or children are welcome to attend appointments.
