Things you should bring for your first visit:
We generally see Patients to confirm the pregnancy and ensure there are no problems, and address any special issues or concerns within a week of your request for an appointment, and sooner if you are experiencing any problems. We will at this initial visit give you a slip for necessary lab studies. It is important that you have these tests done prior to your next appointment. After this appointment we will ask you to schedule a New OB Work-up Visit, generally 4 weeks later.
It is very important to complete all of the forms prior to your first visit. If you do not have time to complete the downloadable forms, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. It is also important to bring your current insurance information.
Even if this is not your first pregnancy, your first prenatal visit with one of our OB counseling nurses is still very important. It is during this meeting that we gather pertinent background information to save you time on your future prenatal visits as well as to order necessary tests based on your background information.
On your OB Work-up Visit, you will speak with one of our OB nurses. This is an exciting visit, introducing you to our office and allowing us the opportunity to learn about you and your expectations during your pregnancy. We';ll also give you an idea of your due date and will provide you with lots of interesting material to make your pregnancy go as smoothly as possible. You will receive: diet information, and hospital policies.
Your OB Work-up visit is scheduled 8-10 weeks into your pregnancy. Your first prenatal visit with your doctor will be the same day.
