Professional Gynecological Services offers prenatal care under the guidance of Dr. Irina Vaizman, Dr. Kelley Halstead OB-GYN Physicians. We assure you the best possible service in a very caring environment. We are affiliated with major hospitals including: Methodist Hospital and others.
At Professional Gynecological Services we believe that prenatal care ideally should start even before pregnancy. During your first visit, we will help you to answer all your questions about fertility, conception and early pregnancy. If you
haven’t seen us before your conception, it will be a good time for you to schedule your initial visit.
During your first exam with us at Professional Gynecological Services, we can help you plan a pregnancy and labor experience uniquely right for you.
As soon as you suspect you’re pregnant, schedule an appointment with our physicians. Even if you’ve confirmed your suspicion with a home pregnancy test, it’s still wise to follow-up with an appointment. This will ensure that you and your baby get off to a good start.
Regular appointments with your health care provider throughout your pregnancy are important to ensure the health of you and your baby. In addition to medical care, prenatal care includes education on pregnancy and childbirth, plus counseling and support.
Frequent visits with your healthcare provider allow you to follow the progress of your baby’s development. Visits also give you the opportunity to ask questions. Also, we welcome your partner at each visit, as well as interested family members.
The first visit is designed to confirm your pregnancy and to determine your general health. In addition, the visit will give our physicians clues to any risk factors that may affect your pregnancy. It will typically be longer than future visits. The purpose of the first prenatal visit is to:
You will be asked about previous pregnancies and surgeries, medical conditions and exposure to any contagious diseases. Also, you will have the opportunity to us about any medications (prescription or over-the-counter) you have taken or are currently taking.
Do not hesitate to ask our provider any question you may have. Most likely, those are the questions your provider hears most often! And, we love to answer them.
Here are some questions you may want to ask. Print or write them down, add to them, and take them to your appointment.
Typically, your first prenatal visit includes a full exam (including pelvic exam and Pap-Smear), collection of urine specimen, and blood tests.
Brief outline of your first medical visit:
After the first visit, you’ll probably be seen monthly through the early stages of pregnancy, as long as everything is going well. Later in the pregnancy, we see patients most frequently. Of course we are available during visits hours to answer urgent questions, or to deal with any unexpected problems.
In addition to our 24 hours answering service we promise you to have an incredible and unique prenatal experience in our facility.
