Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy Care in Jumeirah, Dubai

Prenatal care should start before you get pregnant. If you’re planning a pregnancy, see your health care provider for a complete checkup. Routine testing can make sure you’re in good health and that you don’t have any illnesses or other conditions that could affect you or your pregnancy. If you’re already being treated for a chronic condition, such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension (high blood pressure), a heart problem, allergies, lupus (an inflammatory disorder that can affect several body systems), depression, or some other condition, you should talk to your doctor about how it could affect a pregnancy. In some cases, you may need to change or stop certain medicines — especially during the first trimester (12 weeks) — to reduce risk to the fetus. Or, you may need to be even more careful about managing your condition.

First trimester

It is the start of the pregnancy to week 12. Changes in the first trimester include nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and breast tenderness. Emotions are also all over the place creating anxiety and misbalanced emotions. The baby’s organs are starting to develop such as the brain and spinal cord. The heartbeat also starts to beat through time. Prenatal care is offered at this time such as multivitamin such as iron tablets, folic acid and calcium to boost the increased nutritional needs.

Second trimester

It is the best part of pregnancy. The trimester is between month 4 and month 6. The belly enlarges, there are skin changes and breasts are fuller and larger. As a mother, one can feel the baby kick. There is still the need to constantly visit the pregnancy care provider to ensure everything is in place.

Third trimester

The trimester is between months 6 to giving birth. It is hard since the belly is enlarged significantly there is heartburn and anxiety on childbirth. Fetal movements are noticeable even by the naked eye.

Pregnancy problems

Pregnancy comes with certain issues. Some mothers have a good pregnancy without complications while others are accompanying by complications such as diabetes and hypertension in pregnancy among others. Complications in pregnancy warrant the need to be checked regularly. If you experience any signs or symptoms which you think is not normal than consult your doctor or pregnancy care provider immediately.
