As a midwife in Chester, I provide prenatal care to expecting mothers and will make several visits with you before the birth of your baby.
Consistent prenatal care is an essential part of ensuring you and your baby’s health before you give birth. As a midwife in the Chester, South Carolina area, I provide prenatal care to expecting mothers and conduct regularly scheduled visits before the birth of the baby. Once my clients have made the decision to work together, prenatal visits will be scheduled:
- Every four weeks until 28 weeks gestation
- Every two weeks from 28 weeks to 36 weeks gestation
- Every week from 36 weeks gestation until the baby is born
During each of these visits, we will discuss how to enjoy a healthy pregnancy, which may include going over suggestions for alleviating pregnancy-related discomforts, nutritional counseling, and discussing your desires for the upcoming birth of your baby. I will also check baby’s position, check your vital signs, and listen to fetal heart tones to confirm you and your baby’s wellbeing. Additionally, I can provide referrals for other services, such as childbirth education classes, ultrasounds, and backup medical care.
In addition to regular prenatal care visits, I encourage you to get enough rest, eat a healthy diet, and participate in light exercise, such as walking, while pregnant. Staying healthy is one of the best ways to ensure your goals for birth can be achieved.
I would be more than happy to give you further information about the importance of regular prenatal care and the related services I offer. Contact me at Birth Choice today to schedule your first consultation and first prenatal visit.
