What happens during obstetrics care with a midwife?
During OB-midwife appointments at FemmPro MIDWIFE, your midwife assesses your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They ask about your medical history, medications you might take, family history of disease, and past diagnoses you may have.
Your midwife completes a physical examination to assess your overall health, plus a pelvic exam and Pap test to evaluate your reproductive health and screen for cervical cancer if necessary. Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, your midwife might listen to your baby’s heartbeat and measure your abdomen to assess your baby’s growth.
They may recommend specific diagnostic tests, such as urine tests, blood tests, ultrasound, or genetic testing. The further along you are in your pregnancy, the more often you see a midwife for OB evaluations and necessary treatment.
What should I expect during my labor and delivery?
Your FemmPro MIDWIFE midwife follows your labor and delivery birth plan whenever possible.
Your midwife can coach you through natural childbirth in a hospital if that’s your goal. They monitor you and your baby’s health during and after delivery and continue to care for you postpartum to ensure optimal outcomes for you and your new addition.
