Obstetrics Q & A

What is Obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a specialized area of medicine that focuses on women’s health during pregnancy and birth. May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology has been providing expert OB/GYN care in the Greater Lancaster, Pennsylvania, area for more than 50 years and has served the health care needs of more than five generations of women.

When Should I Schedule My First Obstetric Appointment?

The obstetricians at May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology recommend you contact the office as soon as you know you’re pregnant. The first appointment is usually scheduled at eight weeks of gestation or two weeks after your initial phone call. Getting prenatal care early ensures you and your baby get off to the healthiest start possible.

May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology knows that every woman’s pregnancy is different and offers a blend of talent to meet your very specific pregnancy needs and birth plans, including midwifery services for women seeking a more natural delivery.

What Can I Expect During Obstetric Care?

You can expect exceptional care from a clinical professional at each of your obstetric visits. Your first visit to the office may be the most extensive and include a review of your medical and family history, as well as a physical and pelvic exam. You may also undergo an ultrasound during your first trimester to determine how far along you are and measure your baby’s heartbeat.

May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology is a full-service practice that offers in-house ultrasounds and laboratory services, so you don’t have to go to another facility for any of your special testing during your pregnancy.

How Often Do I Need to Come in for Obstetric Care?

Your obstetric specialist at May-Grant Obstetrics & Gynecology determines how frequently you need to come in for prenatal care, which depends on your weeks of gestation and the health of you and your baby.

In general:

  • Once a month from 8 to 28 weeks
  • Twice a month from 28 to 36 weeks
  • Once a week from 36 weeks to birth

 

If you’re carrying twins or you have an underlying health condition, your pregnancy may be considered high-risk, and you may need to come in for care more often.
