Embarking on the journey of pregnancy is an exciting and sometimes overwhelming experience. Your first prenatal visit is a significant milestone, setting the tone for your entire pregnancy. At Alium, we understand the importance of this initial appointment and strive to provide a white glove service that ensures you feel comfortable, informed, and supported every step of the way.

Scheduling Your First Prenatal Visit 

  

When to Schedule Your Appointment 

It’s generally recommended to schedule your first prenatal visit around 8-10 weeks of pregnancy. However, if you have any concerns or a high-risk pregnancy, you may need to see your healthcare provider sooner. Alium makes it easy to schedule your appointment online or via our dedicated customer service line, ensuring you get timely care when you need it. 

  

Preparing for Your Appointment 


Before your visit, gather any relevant medical information, including your menstrual history, previous pregnancies, and any medical conditions. If you're already taking any medications, bring a list of them as well. At Alium, our white glove service includes sending you a detailed checklist to ensure you come prepared, reducing any stress or confusion. 

  

What to Expect During Your First Prenatal Visit 

  

Comprehensive Health Assessment 

Your first prenatal visit with Alium will include a thorough health assessment. This typically involves: 

  

Medical History Review: Your provider will ask about your medical history, family history, and any previous pregnancies. 


Physical Exam: This may include checking your weight, blood pressure, and a general physical examination. 


Lab Tests and Screenings: Expect to undergo several tests, such as blood work to check for blood type, Rh factor, anemia, and infections. Urine tests are also common to check for urinary tract infections and other conditions. 


Ultrasound and Due Date Estimation 


An ultrasound may be performed to confirm your pregnancy and estimate your due date. This is an exciting part of the visit, as you may get to see your baby for the first time. Alium's state-of-the-art ultrasound technology ensures you get clear, detailed images, making this moment even more special. 

  

Personalized Care Plan 

Based on your health assessment, your provider will create a personalized care plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will outline important milestones, recommended tests, and lifestyle changes to support a healthy pregnancy. Alium’s white glove service ensures you receive a printed copy of your care plan, along with access to our online portal where you can track your progress and appointments.
