Routine Prenatal Care
Once pregnancy is achieved, regular prenatal visits with Dr. Fong will not only provide you with the proper testing and treatments, but will also guide you through the physical and emotional changes that pregnancy brings. An outline of what to normally expect during the entire pregnancy process and being able ask questions should always be welcomed and expected. Typical initial care consists of laboratory blood work with tests to confirm the gestational age of the unborn child.
Regular visits to your obstetrician usually start at 4 week intervals and increase to every 1-2 weeks as you get further along. Fetal imaging with ultrasonography is usually obtained to assure normal development and of course determine the gender of the baby if desired. On average, you can expect to have 13 prenatal visits prior to delivering your full term healthy baby.
