Expectant Mothers Q & A

Do expectant mothers need consulting?

A full-term pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks. During that time, many things play a role in how your body and emotions function and respond. Throughout your nine months of pregnancy, prenatal care and support allow you to stay healthy and successfully give birth.

The Northeast Pediatric Associates PA team has the expertise and experience to guide you, keep an eye on your health, and monitor your baby’s health every step of the way. This attention from your pediatric team gives you the confidence you need.

What symptoms do expectant mothers experience?

When you get pregnant, your body goes through changes as your hormone levels change. You can experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Growing, tender breasts
  • Headaches
  • Spotting
  • Swollen feet
  • Acne
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation
  • Back pain
  • Weight gain
  • Anemia
  • Morning sickness

Hormone changes during pregnancy can also cause stress and depression. Don’t delay reaching out to your provider if you have any of these symptoms.

What are the first steps an expectant mother should take?

If you think you’re pregnant, you should schedule an appointment with the professionals at Northeast Pediatric Associates PA right away. They can confirm your pregnancy with a test that’s more accurate than at-home pregnancy tests. 

If the test concludes you’re indeed pregnant, the team immediately creates a customized plan for you and your baby that includes consultations, checkups, and classes.

What challenges might expectant mothers face?

Although pregnancy is one of the most exciting times of your life, it also puts a strain on you. As your body changes, you can experience mood swings, fearfulness, and anxiety. That’s why the team at Northeast Pediatric Associates PA offers consultations for expectant mothers. They help you face your concerns while keeping an eye on the health of you and your baby.

They help you to understand what to expect during the birthing of your baby, too. Knowing what to expect can excite and give you a sense of being in control. That, in turn, gives you confidence and keeps you joyful during your pregnancy.

If you’re an expectant mother, let your provider walk with you through your pregnancy. They can give you expert guidance and consult with you to give you and your baby a healthy experience. Call the nearest office today or book your appointment online.
