Your pregnancy at Dexeus Mujer
Your antenatal care includes medical visits, laboratory tests, ultrasounds and any additional tests that the gynaecologist deems necessary for proper prenatal diagnosis and monitoring of foetal well-being before delivery.
If your pregnancy is low risk, antenatal care includes: a monthly medical visit until the last month of pregnancy (when the visits are weekly), three blood and urine tests and ultrasound scans at weeks 8, 12, 21, 32 and 40, if applicable.
If your pregnancy is high risk, the controls will be more comprehensive and follow the specific medical protocol for each situation.
When do we talk about high risk pregnancy?
- In twin or multiple pregnancies.
- When there is a history of complications in previous pregnancies: miscarriage, prematurity, hypertension, etc.
- If you are aged under 18 or over 40.
- If you have a family history of hereditary abnormalities.
- If you have an illness (anaemia, hepatitis, malnutrition, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, infectious diseases, etc.).
- If you have an addiction (alcoholism, smoking, etc.).
If you are pregnant and in any of these situations, book an appointment now with one of our high-risk pregnancy specialists.
Taking care of yourself during pregnancy is essential. Adopt healthy habits and enjoy this stage!
