Pregnancy Q & A
What should I know about care during my pregnancy?
When it comes to prenatal care, the earlier, the better — even before you get pregnant. Hawaii Women’s Healthcare offers preconception care to help you and your partner improve your health before you even try to conceive.
Why is this so important? Feeling fit and healthy before pregnancy can make a huge difference if you:
- Are having troubles getting pregnant
- Have a preexisting condition, such as epilepsy or diabetes
- Are overweight
- Know you will have a high-risk pregnancy
Once you find out you are pregnant, finding a doctor who is fully invested in your prenatal care and journey to becoming a mother is your top priority.
At Hawaii Women’s Healthcare, all your prenatal questions are answered in an informative manner, from the moment you find out you are pregnant to the time of your delivery.
The practice’s team of medical professionals has partnered with Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu to provide a safe, comfortable environment for you and your baby when you finally deliver.
What is prenatal care?
Prenatal care consists of the routine checkups and exams that you receive throughout your pregnancy. It’s a crucial component of your pregnancy to ensure that you and your baby remain healthy.
Depending on your situation, your personalized prenatal care plan may include regular checkups and ultrasounds, as well as testing.
These appointments with your doctor are the perfect time to ask questions about your pregnancy and how you can take care of yourself and your unborn baby at home.
Why is prenatal care important?
Thanks to prenatal care, your doctor can assess your pregnancy and perform routine tests to prevent possible health problems in the future.
Without prenatal care, it would be impossible for you to know if you are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy or how to lower your risk of developing complications like:
- Gestational diabetes
- Placenta previa
- Low amniotic fluid
- Premature birth or labor
It’s important to contact your doctor and start scheduling regular prenatal checkups the moment you find out you are pregnant.
