Why is prenatal planning important?

At South Miami OB/GYN Associates, your health and the health of your baby are the number one priority. That’s why your birth plan begins long before the big day.

A planned approach detailing what you can expect during labor and how to prepare for your stay at the hospital will help ease any concerns and ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible for your delivery.  

During prenatal visits, your doctor discusses your options for pain management or natural birth, who you’d like in the room during delivery, and answer any questions you may have. Maintaining an open dialogue helps ensure there are no surprises when the time comes to bring your baby into the world.

How often should I see the doctor during pregnancy?

The frequency of your prenatal visits may vary, but your doctor typically recommends the following schedule:

  • Until week 28: once a month
  • Weeks 28-36: every two weeks
  • Week 36 until delivery: every week

Around week 20, your health care provider will likely perform an ultrasound to check your baby’s growth, monitor their health, and determine the sex (if you want to know). This high-definition 3D ultrasound can even give you a first look at your baby’s beautiful face.

What happens after delivery?  

Once your new family is together, it’s time to make sure you and your new baby are healthy and recovering comfortably. Postpartum visits focus on all the things you’ll need to be the best new mom you can be and address any issues you may face, such as:

  • Healing your body
  • Dealing with soreness
  • Breast engorgement
  • Bathing your newborn
  • Exercise
  • Breastfeeding
  • Emotional health (including postpartum depression)


These follow-up visits are also the perfect time to ask the new questions you’ll undoubtedly have. At South Miami OB/GYN Associates, the health care experts strive to ensure that you and your new baby are happy and healthy.
