Pregnancy Q & A

My pregnancy test is positive. When should I make an appointment?

Your first prenatal visit is usually scheduled for around eight weeks after your last period. Your provider will likely do a full pelvic exam and an ultrasound to check that the baby is in the uterus and has a heartbeat. This information is also used to determine your due date.

Your first appointment also allows you to build a relationship with your doctor at Contemporary Women’s Care and ask any other questions that you may have.

From prenatal testing to childbirth classes and lactation services, you and your newborn can expect the highest level of attention and care from the Contemporary Women’s Care team. As soon as you’re ready to conceive, the team provides support, counseling, and medical supervision, blending exceptional medical care with empathy and compassion to help guide and nurture you throughout your journey.

What is considered a high-risk pregnancy?

Some pregnancies become high risk as they progress, while some women are at increased risk for complications even before they get pregnant for a variety of reasons. Your health history and first exam should reveal any existing or potential risks.

Indicators of a high-risk pregnancy include:

  • Young teenager or over age 35
  • Pregnant with more than one baby
  • History of high-risk pregnancy
  • Chronic health condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or HIV

Just because you have a high-risk pregnancy doesn’t mean you should worry. Your physician and her team will guide you through everything you need to do, right from the get-go.

In some cases, you might know ahead of time about your likelihood of having a high-risk pregnancy. Other times, you might not know until your doctor sees something that concerns her.

When is the best time to plan for my delivery?

Once you find out you’re pregnant, you can start your birth plan. The physicians at Contemporary Women’s Care deliver at Advent Health Winter Park and Winnie Palmer Hospital in downtown Orlando.

Things to consider for your birth plan include:

  • The policies and procedures
  • Who you want to be present at the birth
  • Whether you want to breastfeed immediately
  • Whether you want pain medications

It’s a good idea to get pre-registered at the hospital, and you may want to visit the labor room and birth department to meet the staff and become familiar with the setup. It’s also best to try to plan for the unexpected so that you’re prepared for whatever circumstances may arise. Your doctor at Contemporary Women’s Care provides you with all the information for team members you’ll be in contact with.
