The first appointment with your obstetrician will focus on establishing rapport and giving and receiving important information. Your doctor needs to work out whether there are likely to be any problems with your pregnancy or delivery so they can make it as safe and comfortable as possible. When you first see your obstetrician they will begin by asking questions about your previous gynaecological and obstetric history. This will include any previous pregnancies you may have had and their outcomes and any possible complications. They will also ask about other medical conditions you may have as well as whether you have a family history of any medical / pregnancy problems.
At each visit your obstetrician will examine you. At the first visit the examination is likely to be quite thorough. At the very least on each visit the obstetrician is likely to take your pulse and blood pressure, measure your weight, and examine your abdomen concentrating on the uterus (womb) and fetus.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
