First Prenatal Appointment




As soon as you confirm your pregnancy, it is important to schedule an appointment with your doctor for a physical examination. Your first visit would be the longest visit during your pregnancy.


What would I discuss with my practitioner?


During your first prenatal appointment, your doctor would discuss the following with you:

  • Your due date

  • Your lifestyle: Avoid dangerous exercises and raw meat as well as fish and pets.

  • He will advice you concerning your travels, work, diet and weight gain.

  • He will give you a list of prenatal vitamins and supplements that you should take them during your pregnancy.

  • Types of tests that he suggests to do during your pregnancy as blood test, urine test, ultrasound, sugar level and amniocentesis if necessary

  • When to call him and what is an emergency.

  • What are the symptoms that you will experience during your first trimester and how to ease them.

  • Your next prenatal appointment.

Always keep a list of questions on a piece of paper to ask your doctor about. It is important to have your partner with you during the prenatal visit.
