Prenatal Care

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times of a woman’s life, but it is also full of questions and changes. At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary we are here to help guide you through this time and provide prenatal care services to monitor the health of you and your developing baby.

The Importance of Prenatal Health Care

Routine prenatal care is important not only for the health of your growing baby but also for you. At our prenatal clinic, we see you throughout your pregnancy to ensure that your baby is developing properly and to monitor your health and wellbeing.

Regular prenatal care helps us detect any issues early, should they arise, so that you and your baby can receive the proper care and attention that is needed. Your prenatal care provider can also direct you to important resources and information for each stage of your pregnancy.

What to Expect at Your Prenatal Visits

You can anticipate a comprehensive and caring approach to monitoring both your health and the well-being of your growing baby during your prenatal checkups. These checkups are critical for a healthy pregnancy and a safe birth. Here’s what you can typically expect during your prenatal appointments:

Each prenatal visit is customized to your specific needs and pregnancy stage. We will answer any questions or address any concerns you may have, as well as provide support and assistance throughout the procedure.

Routine tests and procedures will be performed during your prenatal checkups to monitor your health and the growth of your baby. This may include urine tests to check for protein and sugar, weight measurements, blood pressure monitoring, and listening to your baby’s heartbeat once it is detectable.

We will monitor your baby’s growth and position as your pregnancy advances to ensure everything is progressing as expected. Regular measurements and checks  will also help to ensure your baby is developing well.
Depending on your medical history and personal circumstances, you may be subjected to undergo additional exams and screenings at various phases of your pregnancy. These could include ultrasound examinations to check on your baby’s growth and anatomy, blood tests, genetic screenings, glucose testing for gestational diabetes, and Group B Streptococcus (GBS) screening.
