Antenatal Care

by Veronica Gillispie, MD, MAS, FACOG

Antenatal care is paramount as a preventive strategy for protecting the health of both women and fetuses. It includes the treatment of medical complications before childbirth, as well as screening for potential complications that may arise during and after labor (e.g., hyperemesis gravidarum, management of bleeding in various trimesters, fetal malpresentation, and growth restrictions).

Through antenatal care, women can learn from skilled health personnel about healthy behaviors during pregnancy; better understand warning signs during pregnancy and childbirth; and receive social, emotional, and psychological support at this critical time in their lives. Here is when women can receive recommendations on nutrient supplementation, treatments to prevent complications such as eclampsia, and appropriate immunizations.
