Let our Cumming OBGYN team help navigate you throughout the course of your pregnancy.

The strip just turned pink and suddenly everything changed. You are going to have a baby. Of course, it can feel rather daunting to think pregnantabout all the things you’ll have to do to keep both you and the baby healthy during your pregnancy. This is where our expert obstetricians Dr. Dori Kasparek, Dr. Supriya Rao and Dr. Akiva Gimpelevich come in. On July 3 we will be moving the office to 634 Peachtree Parkway in Cumming, GA, to provide advice, support, and care to ensure a healthy and happy pregnancy.

I’m pregnant. Now what?

Once you find out you’re pregnant, especially if this is your first pregnancy, you may have no idea what you need to do next. Even once you’ve had a positive home pregnancy test our OBGYN will need to confirm the pregnancy and also determine how far along you are. If you suspect that you might be pregnant, it’s also a good idea to come into our office. The sooner you and your unborn child begin proper prenatal care the better.

Once you have an obstetrician in Cumming, GA by your side, you can rest assured that you will get the individualized and comprehensive care you need for your pregnancy.

How often do you need to see a doctor?

How often you come into our office will depend on how many weeks along you are and whether there are any health issues or if you have a high-risk pregnancy. A woman who has a healthy pregnancy can typically follow this checkup schedule:

  • 1 visit/month from week 4 to 28
  • 1 visit/2 weeks from week 28 to 36
  • 1 visit/week from week 36 to 40

It’s important that you follow this schedule as closely as possible to ensure that both you and your baby get the prenatal care and monitoring needed for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Coming in regularly also means that we can spot issues early on. Women who are a high-risk pregnancy, who have certain chronic health problems prior to their pregnancy or developed health problems during their pregnancy may need to come in more often.

What else can I do to maintain a healthy pregnancy?

There is certainly a lot you can do to ensure you and your child’s health. This means quitting smoking, not drinking or taking drugs, and eating a healthy diet. We can also provide you with a list of foods such as soft cheeses and raw fish that you need to avoid during your pregnancy.

No doubt you will have questions along the way when it comes to your pregnancy and it’s important that you have an OBGYN team in Cumming, GA, that you can trust. That is why our team is moving to a new office at 634 Peachtree Parkway on July 3. Turn to our compassionate, caring team here at Complete Women’s Healthcare.
