Your routine prenatal care covers all of your medical care during your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period. During pregnancy, this includes everything from prenatal exams to nutritional care and managing health concerns such as diabetes. After delivery, your care continues: You’re monitored for infection, hemorrhage, and urinary or gynecologic issues.
The team at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine go beyond routine obstetric care. They’re also experts in managing high-risk pregnancies and women carrying multiple babies, as well as taking care of obstetrical, medical, or surgical complications of pregnancy.
Blood tests are routinely performed throughout your pregnancy to test for health problems that affect the mother and her baby. A complete blood count, blood typing, and tests for diabetes, rubella, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, and sexually-transmitted infections are all standard.
Genetic screening to determine the risk of certain birth defects is also part of routine prenatal care. The doctors at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine also have a certified genetic counselor on staff, and they specialize in advanced genetic screening and procedures such as:
This is a genetic test that examines blood from the umbilical cord for fetal abnormalities.
Amniotic fluid contains fetal cells and chemicals produced by the baby. It can be withdrawn and used for genetic testing, as well as to determine fetal lung maturity and the presence of infection.
This testing determines whether you or your partner carry a gene for certain disorders such as cystic fibrosis. It can be done before or during pregnancy and is recommended if you have a family history of a genetic disorder.
Chorionic villus sampling
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a procedure that removes wispy projections of the placenta, which are then used to test the baby’s genetics. This is done early in your pregnancy, usually around 10-14 weeks.
Three-dimensional and four-dimensional ultrasound are available at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine. As part of your obstetric care, these ultrasounds can be used after 27 weeks to diagnose the health of your baby, including assessing his or her cardiovascular structures.
Many parents request their own 3D and 4D ultrasound so that they have exceptional images of the baby prior to birth. Three-dimensional images show the baby’s face with the clarity of a photograph, while 4D delivers live streaming that can capture movement, like the baby yawning.
