Prenatal checkups are very important for managing your health and well-being, as well as for your baby. Keep in mind that after planning your first pregnancy and following our recommendations, you will need to make several visits to your gynecologist to make sure your baby is growing up healthy.
Today we want to share with you the prenatal checkups you will need during your first pregnancy. Dr. Lina Villar will briefly explain them to you:
As you can see, one of the most important medical tests is the non-invasive prenatal test. What does it consist of? It is a DNA test on maternal blood; it is very safe and you only need a small sample to get the results in a couple of days. Without putting your pregnancy at risk, the test detects chromosomal abnormalities such as Down’s Syndrome, Patau’s Syndrome and Edwards’ Syndrome.
In our assisted reproduction clinic, we perform the prenatal test to diagnose diseases in the fetus. If there is a problem, you will know in advance and we can assess together the care you will need before, during and after delivery.
You will also need to have an ultrasound done at
Ultrasounds help us to check that the baby has enough amniotic fluid, that its organs such as the heart, kidneys and central nervous system are fine and that the position of the placenta is adequate. Also, one of the most exciting moments is when you hear the baby’s heartbeat.
By the way, if you are interested in a treatment we invite you to know the program (with prices and guarantees) of our assisted reproduction clinic.
