Congratulations! From now, till your baby is delivered, we will be there with you every step of the way. As specialists in the field of obstetrics, we are dedicated to the welfare of you and your baby.
Throughout your pregnancy, your health and your baby's health will be monitored. The antenatal care you'll receive includes routine ultrasounds, measurements and tests in every trimester.
Dr Nair has a special interest in high-risk pregnancies, especially in twin pregnancies. Risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy can include: existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, being HIV-positive or being overweight or obese.
Health conditions that existed prior to conception, or even during the pregnancy, with a high risk for you and your baby will be checked for regularly. This will include (and is not limited to) blood pressure, diabetes, infections, genetic disorders and more.
Pregnancy is associated with complaints such as morning sickness, body pain, heartburn etc. We will advise you on how best to cope with such complaints.
While staying healthy is recommended at all times, it is imperative during a pregnancy. We will provide pregnancy advice to you on diet, exercise and medications.
