Your pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in your life, and to ensure the health of you and your baby, you need the guidance and support of a compassionate obstetrician. At Aventura OB/GYN & Associates in Miami and Hallandale, Florida, the experienced physicians provide comprehensive obstetric care throughout your pregnancy and beyond. The facility has the most advanced technologies, including on-site ultrasounds. Providers treat high-risk pregnancies and offer vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) services. To schedule your pregnancy consultation, book an appointment online or by phone.
Throughout your pregnancy, you visit with your doctor for routine prenatal exams once a month until week 28 of your pregnancy. Through week 36, your doctor schedules prenatal visits every two weeks, then once a week until you give birth.
During your prenatal appointments, your doctor evaluates your overall health, checking your vital signs, taking blood and urine samples, and reviewing any pregnancy symptoms you have, such as morning sickness. The doctor also monitors your blood sugar levels to identify risks of gestational diabetes.
As your baby develops, prenatal visits include regular measurements of your abdomen and ultrasounds to monitor growth and development. Your doctor also regularly listens to your baby’s heartbeat.
As you get closer to delivery, your doctor may recommend childbirth classes, so you know what to expect when the big day arrives.
You may be considered a high-risk pregnancy if you have medical issues that can compromise the health of you or your baby throughout pregnancy or during labor and delivery. Issues that may cause a high-risk pregnancy include:
Your doctor assesses your pregnancy risks during your initial prenatal exam. If they determine your pregnancy is high-risk, you receive a customized care plan to ensure a healthy delivery.
At Aventura OB/GYN & Associates, high-risk pregnancies are a specialty. The experienced medical team is capable of treating the complexities of high-risk pregnancies and ensure you and your baby receive top-notch care throughout the nine months and beyond.
Vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC) is another specialty of the Aventura OB/GYN medical team. Having a previous C-section doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t experience a vaginal birth with your next child. In fact, up to 90% of women who delivered by C-section can be a good candidate for a successful VBAC.
The biggest risk of a vaginal birth following a C-section is a uterine rupture. With the careful monitoring of your Aventura OB/GYN physician, a vaginal birth may be possible. Your doctor discusses the specifics of your pregnancy during your prenatal visit, so you’ll know what to expect.
