Obstetrics and Early Pregnancy

Obstetrics and gynecology visits during early pregnancy usually start at the end of the second month of pregnancy. Lifestyle changes and finding out what is an obstetrician going to do to help make sure mom and baby are healthy and safe are the initial changes that follow the positive home pregnancy test.

The obstetrician will also make sure that any medications that you are taking are appropriate during the pregnancy.
