Treatment and Testing During Pregnancy
During your pregnancy, you will be scheduled for routine visits with providers at Alliance OB/GYN. These appointments allow your provider to monitor the health of you and your baby. They also allow your provider to screen for potential complications that may occur in pregnancy, and intervene as early as possible to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your baby.
Additional tests in the form of blood work, ultrasounds, and/or fetal monitoring may be ordered based on your personal history or the way your pregnancy is progressing. Your provider will discuss the purpose of these tests with you in detail and will answer any questions that you may have.
If you are unable to come in for your scheduled appointment for any reason, we encourage you to reschedule as soon as possible. If you do not want to keep your recommended appointments for either routine visits or testing, you will be encouraged to schedule an appointment to discuss your decision with your provider.
All appointments and tests are to promote the healthiest outcome for you and your baby. Failure to keep any appointments, including ultrasound or monitoring, may seriously jeopardize your health and your baby’s health. This may lead to increased illness or even death of you or your baby.
