During your pregnancy, you will have many questions about your own healthcare and the health of your baby. MedStar Health obstetricians are available to answer your questions and provide you with support and high-quality care.
Now that you're pregnant, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the changes your body will go through and how your baby will develop. A full-term pregnancy is considered 40 weeks long. Your doctor calculates your due date from your last menstrual period, which means the first two weeks of your pregnancy include the time of your period, ovulation and fertilization.
Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life. Your body will be going through many changes in the next few months, and regular prenatal checkups are important to your health and the health of your baby. MedStar Health hospitals offer complete pregnancy care, from the first visit to delivery and postpartum care.
Even though prenatal checkups and labor and delivery are routine for us, we know they are not routine for you. Our skilled staff will be there for you throughout your entire pregnancy, ready to answer your questions and help you navigate the world of prenatal care and testing.
When your delivery date arrives, our state-of-the art labor and delivery suites are ready for you. If your newborn baby requires extra care and support, we have a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
