How an Obstetrician and Gynecologist Can Guide You Through Pregnancy

Welcome to the journey of pregnancy, a beautiful yet challenging phase in a woman’s life. As an obstetrician and gynecologist, my role is to navigate you through this journey, ensuring your health and that of your unborn child. From your first prenatal checkup to postnatal care, my expertise ensures that you have the right guidance every step of the way. In the heart of our practice – gresham well women visits – we prioritize your wellness and your baby’s, offering personalized care you can trust. Pregnancy can be a maze, but together, we can turn it into an enriching experience.

The First Trimester

The initial 12 weeks are crucial. Your body begins to house a new life. You might experience morning sickness, fatigue, and mood swings. Don’t worry, this is all normal. Regular prenatal visits allow us to monitor your health and your baby’s development.

The Second Trimester

This is often termed the ‘golden period’ of pregnancy. Most discomforts like morning sickness subside. You might start to feel your baby move! Exciting, isn’t it? Regular checkups continue to ensure everything is on track.

The Third Trimester

As your baby grows, you might feel more discomfort. Your baby bump is now quite visible. You could be dealing with heartburn, insomnia, or anxiety about childbirth. Don’t fret, we are here to help you cope.

Labor and Delivery

This is it, the moment you’ve been waiting for. You’re about to meet your little one! It can be daunting — the pain, the unknown. But remember, you’re made for this. We walk you through the process, from managing contractions to the actual birth.

Postnatal Care

Once your baby is here, most think the journey is over. But postnatal care is just as important. We monitor your recovery and offer guidance on taking care of your newborn. Remember, it’s okay to ask for help. You’re not alone.

Through every step, from prenatal to postnatal care, the goal of Gresham well women visits is to ensure your and your baby’s health. Pregnancy can indeed be a maze, but with the right guidance, it turns into an enriching experience — an unforgettable journey.
