How your obstetrician in Ridgewood, New Jersey, can helppregnancy

Congratulations! You’re going to have a baby! It’s an exciting time for everyone and there are many wonderful milestones along the way. Dr. Eric Bentolila in Ridgewood, New Jersey, wants to introduce you to pregnancy milestones you will experience.

As you pass through the first trimester of pregnancy, you may experience morning sickness, sensitivity to smells and certain foods, and other less-than-wonderful issues. This is all perfectly normal. It is during the first trimester that you may have an ultrasound, the first look at your baby. Also during this first three months, you will be able to hear your baby’s heartbeat.

During the second trimester, unpleasant issues like morning sickness should lessen or disappear. When you are about 20 weeks pregnant, you will have an ultrasound to see your baby’s development. You may also find out the gender of your baby. You will feel your baby’s first kicks, an exciting time!

It is during your third trimester that your baby’s growth will increase the most. You may feel uncomfortable moving around and may have back pain. During this time, Dr. Bentolila will discuss the birth and issues including anesthesia and delivery, and answer any questions you may have.

During your pregnancy, Dr. Bentolila will provide a wide range of services to ensure you and your baby are healthy. You can benefit from:

  • Prenatal and pregnancy screenings
  • Prenatal care and nutritional counseling
  • Ultrasounds and blood tests
  • Labor and delivery care
  • Follow-up care and postpartum counseling

When you are pregnant, you should plan on visiting Dr. Bentolila every three to four weeks during the first few months. As your pregnancy progresses, you will see him more frequently, and see him every week as the birth nears.

Pregnancy care is a vital part of ensuring health for you and your baby. You deserve to enjoy every milestone of your pregnancy and Dr. Bentolila can help. You deserve the peace-of-mind that great pregnancy care can bring.
