What happens at my appointments?
You will have individual appointments for pre-contraception advice, throughout your pregnancy and 6 weeks postpartum with a Physician and our PCN Registered Nurse. These appointments will be scheduled at different intervals depending on where you are at in your pregnancy, with an appointment weekly when you are in the last 4 weeks before baby comes.
You will receive complete medical assessments and referrals to have bloodwork and ultrasounds done, and also have opportunities to discuss with our team any questions you may have throughout your pregnancy, about childbirth or after your baby is born on topics such as newborn care, breastfeeding, nutrition, and contraception. At each appointment, the clinic team will coordinate your appointments, weigh you and take your blood pressure, and then our physician and RN will meet with you to talk about how your pregnancy is progressing, including talking about your baby’s heart rate, growth and movement, and birth plan. Our team will also ensure that referrals for specialist care or other services to support you in your pregnancy journey are completed as required.
