Pregnancy Q & A

What is involved in pregnancy care?

Pregnancy care involves pre-pregnancy counseling, prenatal support, and post-natal care. If you’re thinking about getting pregnant, Dr. Guballa helps you tune up your lifestyle to maximize your chances of a successful pregnancy and make you as healthy as possible in advance. This may include beginning prenatal vitamins, stopping certain medications, and recommendations on diet and exercise.

Prenatal care involves monitoring you during your pregnancy. Dr. Guballa offers appropriate screenings, monitors your baby’s growth, ensures you and baby are healthy, and addresses any potential complications before they become serious. You come into the office for regular prenatal visits to ensure your pregnancy is on track.

Postnatal care is the time after delivery when baby seems central, but mom still needs health support. Dr. Guballa ensures you’re healing from delivery appropriately, answers questions about breastfeeding, and checks in with your mental and physical health.

What is involved in prenatal care?

Prenatal care involves comprehensive health support, such as

  • Regular checkups
  • Nutritional support
  • Screening tests for mom and baby
  • Support for pregnancy ailments, complications, and problems
  • Help putting together a birth plan
  • Counseling for labor and delivery

Dr. Guballa is always available if you have special issues or concerns. She is happy to give extra support and attention when your health needs it. 

Plan to come in about once a month during the first trimester, twice per month during the second, and even more frequently -- depending on your needs -- as you get closer to delivery. The office team sets up an appointment schedule for you. 

What are the benefits of prenatal care?

Prenatal care ensures you get the correct monitoring and care you need for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. These visits also give you one-on-one time with Dr. Guballa. You develop a relationship so you can ask questions without hesitation. 

Older patients or those who need more time and attention receive the necessary care to ensure they feel comfortable both during pregnancy and delivery.
