Obstetrics Q & A
WHEN WILL I SEE MY GYNECOLOGIST DURING PRENATAL CARE?
You have regular obstetrics checkups throughout your pregnancy, beginning with monthly appointments and increasing to biweekly visits from weeks 28 through 36.
After you reach week 36, Dr. Samuel Botros sees you every week until you have your baby. He personally delivers your baby using evidence-based and clinically practiced medicine to ensure the safety of you and your baby.
WHAT SERVICES WILL I RECEIVE DURING PRENATAL CARE?
You receive routine obstetrics care from Dr. Samuel Botros, such as:
Routine blood work
At specific times during your pregnancy, you have routine blood tests that monitor your health and check for health conditions that might affect you and your baby, such as anemia and gestational diabetes.
You also have a routine blood test that checks for chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome. If you have a family history of a genetic disease, Dr. Samuel Botros can perform additional genetic screening.
Dr. Samuel Botros devotes time to teaching you about your pregnancy, covering a wide range of information such as details about your baby’s growth, natural changes in your body, and delivery procedures.
You also have time to ask any questions you might have, whether about nutrition, expected weight gain, or normal aches and problems that are expected during pregnancy.
WHEN WILL I HAVE AN OB ULTRASOUND?
You may have an ultrasound during your first appointment to confirm your due date, look for multiple babies, or to confirm you’re pregnant. Another routine ultrasound is done during your second trimester, around 18-20 weeks.
During the second trimester ultrasound, Dr. Samuel Botros examines your baby’s growth and anatomy, the position of the placenta, and the amount of amniotic fluid. You may also learn the gender of your baby during this ultrasound.
