Your First Prenatal Visit

Schedule your first prenatal visit as soon as you know you’re pregnant. Your first visit may include:

  • A review your medical history
  • An estimate your baby’s gestational age and due date, based on your last menstrual period and possibly an ultrasound
  • A physical exam
  • Information on what you can do to keep yourself and your baby as healthy as possible throughout your pregnancy

Supporting a Healthy Pregnancy

See your provider regularly throughout your pregnancy so he or she can monitor your health, measure your baby’s growth, and address any questions or concerns. Your provider will tell you how often you should return for checkups.
