  • Why is pregnancy care important?

    The main goal of pregnancy care is to avoid the risks and complications associated with pregnancy and to ensure smooth delivery. However most pregnancies are normal and healthy, but there is still a substantial number of cases where serious complications can happen if women dont undergo prenatal care. Pregnancy care involves regular health checkups, which help in identifying any underlying health conditions of the mother like- diabetes, blood pressure and hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

    The earlier any particular complication is caught, the more prepared you can be to alleviate the risks, for example, if a woman is diabetic or if diabetes is uncontrolled, then the baby could be larger than the usual babies, which may make vaginal birth harder and can also increase the risk for nerve injuries and other trauma during birth or in some cases it can also lead to stillbirth. The health issues that are detected early in prenatal care are genetic abnormalities, pre-eclampsia, and PCOS. Moreover, your dietary habits also play a significant role during pregnancy.

    Diagnosis and regular medical tests during pregnancy

    Diagnostic tests during pregnancy-

    Your healthcare provider may recommend a variety of screening tests and other diagnostic tests to determine certain abnormalities, including certain hereditary or spontaneous genetic disorders-

    • Screening of chromosomal abnormalities- This test usually measures the markers that can help estimate the risk of down’s syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. If women had screening tests in the first trimester, then it may not require.
    • Ultrasonography- It is usually performed to check for abnormalities in the fetus when a pregnant woman has an abnormal result on a prenatal blood test. Ultrasonography can do the following-
    • To determine the due date 
    • Examine the placental structure 
    • Examine blood flow patterns
    • Observe fetal behaviour and activity
    • To monitor fetal growth

    Two types of ultrasound are performed during pregnancy.

    • Abdominal ultrasound- The doctor applies the gel to your abdomen, then the ultrasound transducer glides over the gel on the abdomen to create the image.
    • Transvaginal ultrasound- In this procedure, a small ultrasound transducer is inserted into the vagina to create an image. It gives a sharper image than ultrasound.
    • Chorionic villus sampling- In this sampling, the doctor takes a small sample of chorionic villi. This procedure is usually performed to diagnose some disorders in the fetus, usually between 10 to 12 weeks of pregnancy.
    • Percutaneous umbilical blood sampling- In this procedure doctor first anaesthetizes an area of skin over the abdomen. After that doctor inserts the needle through the abdominal wall and uterus into the umbilical cord. This test is used to analyze the rapid chromosome analysis. Doctors recommend this test when they suspect the fetus has anaemia. 
    • Amniocentesis-  Doctors prescribe this test to diagnose the chromosomal disorder and open neural tube defects such as spina bifida. It is usually performed between the 15th to 20th week of pregnancy. This test involves inserting a long thin needle into the amniotic sac to withdraw a sample of amniotic fluid. This amniotic fluid surrounds the fetus. This test more reliably indicates the whether the fetus has a brain or spinal cord defect.
    • Fetal monitoring- It is usually performed during late pregnancy and labour it is performed to monitor the fetal heart rate and other functions. The average fetal heart rate is between 120-160 beats per minute. This procedure is performed by inserting an electrode through the dilated cervix and attaching the electrode through the dilated cervix and attaching the electrode into the scalp of the fetus. 
    • Genetic screening- It involves assessing the couple’s family history and analysis of blood or tissue samples.
