Some of the many obstetric services available with Dr. Gray and her team include:
Dr. Gray monitors your and your baby's health to ensure the best possible outcome with a low risk of complications.
During your first obstetric visit, your specialist weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Dr. Gray assesses you and your baby’s health during a physical examination. She evaluates your heartbeat, breathing, abdomen size, and your baby’s heartbeat.
Dr. Gray calculates your estimated due date and lets you know what to expect during your pregnancy. She makes recommendations for prenatal vitamin supplements, diet, exercise, sleep, and other healthy lifestyle habits. She may recommend you complete a urine test, blood tests, ultrasound, or other diagnostic tests as needed to ensure exceptional health and wellness.
During subsequent visits, Dr. Gray might suggest additional diagnostic tests for you or your baby. Expect to complete ultrasounds during certain times throughout your pregnancy.
The number of obstetric visits to schedule with Dr. Gray depends on whether your pregnancy is low or high risk. You might have a high-risk pregnancy if you have advanced maternal age, a history of pregnancy complications, diabetes, or other chronic diseases or their risk factors.
In general, you’ll see Dr. Gray once a month during the first part of your pregnancy and twice a month or weekly as you approach your due date. Call her office if you experience new or unusual symptoms, such as decreased fetal movement, pelvic pain, or bleeding.
