What is a pregnancy care?

Pregnancy is the most vital, beautiful, and sensitive phase in the life of a woman. Pregnancy care consists of two phases - antenatal, also known as prenatal (before birth) and postnatal (after birth) healthcare for the expectant mother and the baby. During the pregnancy, the gynecologist checks the mother and the baby regularly to ensure their proper health and a trouble free delivery. Getting thoroughly diagnosed during the pregnancy is very important for both the baby and the mother. This involves medications and vaccinations for the best health of the mother and the baby, and even educating and counseling the mother about different aspects and how to handle those during the pregnancy. Pregnancy care, especially antenatal care in the hands of a professional gynecologist is important even if you think your pregnancy is going well, to identify and avoid and potential risks.

Procedure

Normal delivery

A normal or vaginal delivery can be divided into different phases.

The early phase of labor begins with the rupture of the amniotic sac. This is often known as "water breaking." The amniotic sac usually remains intact until the delivery time. The gush of fluid that comes out after the water breaks should be colorless and odorless. If the color becomes green yellow , or brown, then doctor consultation is a must.

The uterus starts contracting and relaxing which pushes the baby out through the cervix. It can feel like heavy cramping at times. Contractions are not essentially a primary indicator of labor pain. But in case the contractions last for an hour or so, you need to understand that your labor has begun.

During the labor, the cervix facilitates in delivering the baby. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. It dilates and opens enough to allow the baby to pass out. The cervical canal opens up to 10 cms to let the baby pass into the birth canal. Once the baby enters the vagina, the muscles and the skin get stretched. The labia and the perineum also opens to the maximum point. If the mother experiences terrible burning sensation, the doctor may decide to intently perform an incision of the vaginal opening to fasten the delivery and to relieve the mother of the pain. This process is known as episiotomy.

By this time, the head of the baby should come out. Although the pain and pressure subsides by now, the discomfort will still remain. The doctor and nurse will ask you to push the baby gently till the baby emerges into the world.

The final stage involves delivering the placenta. This might take a few minutes to half an hour. Your healthcare provider will inspect the placenta to make sure if it was delivered completely or not.

Cesarean Delivery

The obstetrician prepares for a C-section or cesarean delivery by using anesthesia to numb the lower part of the body. Your abdomen will be cleaned with an antiseptic solution and then shaved. The obstetrician, using a knife will make an incision in the abdominal wall. After the abdomen, another incision is made in the uterus. A side-to-side cut is also made to rupture the amniotic sac. The baby is taken out of the uterus, the doctors cut the umbilical cord and then delivers the placenta.

Once the delivery is over, the doctors stitch back the incisions using dissolvable stitches. After the surgery, the mother is kept under supervision and medications at a maternity ward.

Overview

Prenatal care consists of regular visits to OB-GYN to monitor the growth, condition, and behavior of the unborn baby. Prenatal visits also allow for early detection of any health-related complications or issues that may hurt the pregnant female. The goal of prenatal or antenatal visits is to ensure the female and the baby remains safe during and immediately after pregnancy.

p>

After getting pregnant, it is recommended the pregnant female visits the best OB-GYN for regular prenatal visits. If a female is planning to get pregnant, she should visit an OB-GYN to prepare for the pregnancy in the best way. The first prenatal visit covers the female’s medical history, how she is feeling in her pregnancy, some basic information like her weight and blood pressure. The doctor may also do a physical exam including a pelvic exam to monitor the size and shape of the uterus (womb) and a Pap smear test to check for any abnormalities in the cervix.

The doctor will do a urine and blood test during the first prenatal. Future prenatal visits include tests to inspect for diabetes of pregnancy, anemia and other serious health conditions that may complicate the pregnancy. Some females may also be suggested to get urine tests at each visit to check for sugar and protein levels in the urine.

Without prenatal visits, the infant is at a risk for multiple complications including preterm birth (birth of the baby before 37 weeks of pregnancy), which is one of the major causes of infant death. Also, babies born too early before the due date are more susceptible to chronic illnesses which affect the lungs, heart, brain, and immune system.

In the United States alone, 1 in 10 infants are born prematurely Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine the exact cause of preterm birth. This factor is one of many reasons why prenatal care is so important. With regular checkups, the doctor can keep an eye and monitor any harmful developments which may be harmful for the female and the infant.

Why is prenatal care so important?

Prenatal care is important to stay healthy during pregnancy. The doctor and nurse will monitor the baby’s development and perform routine tests to help find and prevent any possible complications or problems. These regular prenatal checkups can help the female learn to take best care of herself and her baby during pregnancy and steps to ease any discomfort during pregnancy.

Benefits of prenatal care include-

  • Reduced risk of complications during pregnancy, labor or delivery

  • Reduced risk of birth defects

  • Regular tests, ultrasounds and diagnosis during pregnancy

  • Proper nutritional information

When do I start having prenatal care visits?

A female can start getting prenatal care as soon as she finds out that she is pregnant. It is actually best to see an expert OB-GYN before a female gets pregnant. This is called preconception planning or pre-pregnancy care. But if that is not possible, a female should begin her prenatal visits as soon as she can.

How often should you have prenatal care visits?

How often the female goes for prenatal visits depends on how far along her pregnancy is. A female’s medical history and health condition can also determine the number of prenatal visits she needs. Females with high risk pregnancy may need more prenatal visits and regular care. Typical prenatal care schedule for a female who is between the age of 18 to 35 years old and healthy is-

  • Visit to doctor every 4 - 6 weeks for the first 32 weeks of pregnancy

  • Visit to doctor every 2 or 3 weeks for the 32nd-37th weeks of pregnancy

  • Visit to doctor every week from the 37th week until delivery of the baby

The doctor might ask the female to visit for antenatal check-ups more often if she has a high-risk pregnancy.

What complications can be prevented with Prenatal visits?

Most females have a normal pregnancy without any complications. However, some pregnant females might experience complications which can involve their health or the baby’s health. Sometimes, various diseases or conditions the female has before pregnancy can lead to complications in pregnancy. Some complications may also occur during delivery.

Most of such complications which occur during pregnancy and at the time of delivery can be prevented and detected early with prenatal visits. Early detection with prenatal care can reduce further risks to the female and the baby.

Common complications that occur during pregnancy include-

  • Infections

  • anemia

  • high blood pressure

  • preeclampsia

  • gestational diabetes

  • loss of pregnancy, or miscarriage

  • preterm labor

Early detection of such complications can prevent any risks or harms to the baby and the female. With regular prenatal visits, the doctor can detect and control these complications and prevent any harm to the pregnancy.
