Newly pregnant in Passaic?
A visit to a medical professional is essential if you suspect that you may be pregnant. While at home tests are accurate indicators of pregnancy, the next step is a conversation with your doctor! Your first visit regarding prenatal care at Ahkami Medical Group will include the following elements:
- A comprehensive medical history that details your gynecological history, past pregnancies, personal and family health history, medication use and lifestyle.
- A comprehensive physical examination: to determine BMI, blood pressure, heart and breathing rates, as well as an examination of your vagina where changes in the cervix and size of the uterus help us determine the stage of your pregnancy.
- Blood tests to determine your Rh status, measure hemoglobin and detect exposure to certain infections.
- Screening tests for fetal abnormalities
Prenatal care in Passaic should begin as soon as you are pregnant.
