Thinking of growing your family?
Pregnancy Care

 

It’s very important for you and your baby to be looked after from the start of your pregnancy until after the birth.

 

Dr. Pregs Care should include providing support and information, monitoring your health and wellbeing and that of your baby, and identifying special medical or personal needs.

 

 

CTG Heart Monitoring

 

Cardiotocography (CTG) is a technical means of recording the fetal heartbeat and the uterine contractions during pregnancy. The machine used to perform the monitoring is called a cardiotocograph which helps Dr. Pregs to monitor the health of your baby.

 

 

Flu Vaccinations

 

The influenza vaccine is also recommended for women planning a pregnancy. It is free to pregnant women at any time of their pregnancy and available through their GP.

 

 

Whooping Cough

 

For pregnant women, the whooping cough vaccine (dTpa) is recommended during the third trimester of each pregnancy, preferably between 28 and 32 weeks. The vaccine is safe, free and the most effective way to protect your baby until they are old enough to be vaccinated at six weeks.

 

Whooping cough can affect people of any age. It can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening health issues in babies and young children, especially those who are not fully vaccinated.

 

 

NIPT

 

Dr. Pregs performs NIPT, a non-invasive prenatal testing. When you’re pregnant, your blood contains fragments of your baby’s DNA.
 

A non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) is a new type of test that analyses this DNA in a sample of your blood to predict the chance of Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (trisomy 13). Collecting your blood sample for NIPT poses no threat to your baby.
