Congratulations on your new pregnancy! We are delighted to have you as our patient and part of our office “family.” The enclosed information contains a description of what to expect at your prenatal office visits and answers to common pregnancy questions. If you would like more detailed information you can visit the ACOG (The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) website: www.acog.org. This is an excellent resource. Please beware of randomly searching the internet for pregnancy related issues and concerns; there is a large amount of information posted by so called “experts.” ACOG also offers a very helpful book Your Pregnancy and Childbirth: Month to Month.
Disclaimer: Please keep in mind the statements on these FAQ pages are used as a general guideline for what to expect during pregnancy. Every patient is different and will be treated according to the doctor’s judgment. The information found here is not to replace seeking medical attention for an urgent or concerning matter. If you are ever unsure or concerned about a medical issue please call your doctor or seek medical attention immediately.
