How to schedule prenatal visits when an immigrant woman is pregnant?
In order to protect the mother’s and fetus’ health, regular prenatal visits are required. These are scheduled for all expectant mothers. The usual schedule of prenatal visits to your doctor is monthly for the first twenty-eight weeks, every two weeks from twenty-eight to thirty-six weeks, and weekly thereafter until delivery. Thus, a total of 15 prenatal visits before childbirth is recommended. Women who have high risks gestations or multiple gestations must schedule more prenatal visits as they need.
