About Your Care

Getting the best care possible during pregnancy is critical for your health and the health of your baby - or babies.

Pregnancy Care at Gynecology and Obstetrics of Dekalb

Getting to Know Our Obstetricians

We have four obstetricians in the practice and, during your pregnancy, we try to rotate your appointments so you can meet each one. Of course, if you prefer to see one of them primarily, let us know when you make your appointment. It is important to meet each of them since your primary provider may not be on call when you deliver.

Pregnancy Appointments

We schedule regular appointments throughout the normal 40-week gestation, and we will schedule your visits every four weeks until you are 28 weeks pregnant. Between 28 and 36 weeks, we will see you every two weeks. From 36 weeks until you deliver, we will see you every week.

If you are at high risk or develop a problem during your pregnancy, more frequent appointments may be necessary.

Seeing a Specialist

You may also need to see a specialist during your pregnancy. Sometimes this is a single visit for consultation, or you may have to see them for the entire course of your pregnancy. Typically, we refer patients to Atlanta Maternal Fetal Medicine, Atlanta Perinatal Associates or Emory Perinatology.

Common reasons to see a specialist include:

  • If you chose to have first trimester or nuchal translucency screening.
  • If you will be older than age 35 at the time of your delivery.
  • If you have any high-risk issues associated with your pregnancy such as (but not limited to) diabetes, high blood pressure, liver or kidney disease, preeclampsia, history of preterm deliveries, thyroid disease, etc.

It is important for your health and the health of your baby that you maintain follow-up care with the specialist as instructed.

If you have any questions during your pregnancy, don't hesitate to call our office.

Patient Confidentiality

Unless we receive written permission, by law we are not allowed to release any information about you, your care, test results, or medications you are on to any person except you. Please keep this in mind when asking someone to call our office regarding information about your care.
