Family Physicians specializing in Low-Risk Obstetrics in Brampton

Family doctors provide care for the whole person, including issues unrelated to pregnancy. They have training in maternity and newborn care, as well as most other areas of medicine. Our family physicians at Brampton’s Primary Care Group provide prenatal and postpartum care for mom and baby as long as they are needed, including help with breastfeeding, nutrition, quitting smoking and help with mental health concerns or medical concerns for the newborn. Family doctors who provide maternity care may take you on as a long-term patient in their practice, or they will help you find a family doctor for ongoing care after the postpartum period.

What Happens During Prenatal Visits?

After you find out you are pregnant, you should make an appointment with your doctor.

On your first visit, your family physician Brampton will start by taking a record of your medical history and how you’ve been feeling. You’ll be weighed and have your blood pressure taken at every visit. On your first visit you’ll also probably have a pelvic exam to check the size and shape of your uterus (womb), and if needed, a Pap smear to check for signs of cancer of the cervix (the opening of the uterus) and cultures to check for infections. Urine and blood tests may be done on the first visit and again later in your pregnancy.
