During the 9 months of the pregnancy you would require very high level of personalized care to ensure that the baby growing inside your womb is free of all complications. Your gynaecologist would ensure that the health of both the mother and the baby is fine during these nine months. This is done by regularly testing the blood parameters of the pregnant mother and prescribing medications and supplements to cover the deficiencies. Ultrasound scans are done to observe the growth of the foetus which includes a Level 2 ultrasound scan to rule out any congenital abnormalities in the baby.
Most of the hospitals offer you an Ante Natal Package which includes the following : - 6-8 Consults with the Gynaecologist - Blood and Urine Tests - Ultrasound Scans You must understand the nitty gritty of the tests which are required during the pregnancy. The blood tests include CBC which is done to know the value of blood components specially the haemoglobin levels. If the haemoglobin is low then the gynaecologist will prescribe you medicines to increase the levels. Thyroid test and Blood Glucose tests are done to determine the health of the mother. Viral markers like Hepatitis, HIV, VDRL are done to make sure that the mother is free of all infectious diseases which can pass on to the unborn baby.
An ultrasound scan is done during the first trimester to see the viability of the foetus. The ultrasound exam which is done around 14-16 weeks is the most important one and is called Level 2 Scan which is done to rule out any congenital abnormalities in the foetus. If the foetus has some major congenital abnormalities then you can get the pregnancy aborted before the 20th week which is the legal provision in India under the PNDT Act. In the third trimester some more blood tests are done to keep an eye on the haemoglobin levels, iron levels and thyroid levels. A colour doppler exam is done around the 30th week to see the loops of umbilical cord around the neck of the foetus and also to see the position of the baby. Ideally the baby should be positioned with its head downwards to ensure normal delivery. During all these ultrasound scans the heart rate and body weight of the baby is estimated. A healthy baby should weigh in the range of 2.5 – 3 kg just before the due date of delivery.
