Antenatal Consultation

Antenatal appointments are an important part of your care during pregnancy. You can arrange your first appointment as soon as you find out you are expecting or if your midwife recommends that you see an obstetrician at any point.


Regular check ups will help you and your baby to stay healthy. The appointments will also be a chance for you to ask questions and learn more about pregnancy and birth.

When Should You Have an Antenatal Consultation?

Our gynaecology specialists will advise you on your antenatal appointment schedule, but generally:

  • You can arrange your first antenatal appointment as soon as you find out that you are pregnant.
  • You will then have regular check ups throughout your pregnancy.
  • The number of antenatal consultations you need will depend on your health and whether you experience any complications. You will also have more frequent antenatal appointments if this is your first pregnancy.

What to Expect

What happens during your antenatal consultation will change as your pregnancy progresses. However, most appointments will involve some basic health checks for you and your baby. The doctor might:

  • check your weight
  • measure your stomach
  • listen to the baby’s heartbeat
  • take blood and urine samples for testing
  • ask about your health and any symptoms you’ve noticed so that potential complications can be diagnosed and treated

You will get lots of useful information and advice during your antenatal consultations. You will have a chance to discuss everything from your diet to your birth plan. Our gynaecology specialists atLotus Kliinik will ensure that you understand any tests or treatments that are needed. they will also help you to prepare for labour and explain what to expect in the coming weeks and months.
