During your first prenatal appointment, your clinician will perform a head-toe physical exam with a pap smear and testing for sexually transmitted infections. Test results from any previous visits will also be reviewed.
At every prenatal visit you will be asked to provide a urine sample to test for the presence of proteins, glucose or signs of a urinary tract infection. OneWorld health assistants will check your blood pressure and weight.
During your appointment, your clinician will ask you questions related to your pregnancy, measure the size of your uterus and listen to your baby’s heartbeat with you. They will review prenatal danger signs and answer any questions you may have about your pregnancy or upcoming delivery.
