Pregnancy and Delivery Q & A

What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is an area of medical practice focused on ensuring you are able to enjoy a healthy and safe pregnancy. This is such an exciting time in a woman’s life, and partnering with a great OB/GYN can make the journey far easier to navigate. 

Prenatal care visits begin as soon as you learn you’re expecting. These appointments give Dr. Riftine an opportunity to track your pregnancy and screen for potential problems throughout the process. 

At each visit, your vital signs are recorded, and Dr. Riftine compares your progress to data compiled from thousands of other pregnancies. This allows her to detect any signs of complications as early as possible. 

What kinds of pregnancy and delivery services are available?

As you move closer to your due date, Dr. Riftine works closely with you to determine how your delivery is likely to occur. If you have a higher-risk pregnancy, she will ensure you are getting the additional care and monitoring you need to thrive. 

Many expectant mothers want to create a birth plan, which is an outline of how they would like their birth experience to play out. Dr. Riftine can explain what to expect based on your specific circumstances and can suggest ways to make this experience as meaningful and comfortable as possible. 

Dr. Riftine will perform the screenings appropriate for your pregnancy. These important tests let you know how your child is developing and can identify developmental or chromosomal abnormalities as early as possible. If an issue arises, Dr. Riftine will discuss options and next steps as needed. 

What can I ask about during prenatal care visits?

When it comes to prenatal care visits, there are no subjects that are off-limits. You’re encouraged to ask questions and express any concerns you might have. Possible topics include:

  • Nutrition
  • Weight gain
  • Exercise planning
  • Stretch marks
  • Sex during pregnancy
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Urinary incontinence

These are just some of the topics you can broach during your prenatal care visits with Dr. Riftine. To learn more, or to book your first prenatal visit, call the office or try the easy online booking tool.
