You’re pregnant! Now what?

Regular prenatal visits are essential to you and your baby’s health.

Your first appointment is typically around 8 to 10 weeks. Each visit will include a check on your weight and blood pressure. You’ll get to hear your baby’s heart beat each time and ask questions.

A typical prenatal care schedule includes visits:

  • Once a month during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy
  • Twice a month during the 28th through 36th weeks of pregnancy
  • Once a week after 36 weeks

If your provider determines you have a high-risk pregnancy, you have easy access to specialized care through University of Minnesota Medical Center’s three Maternal-Fetal Medicine Centers.
