After you have a positive home pregnancy test, call our office to schedule your initial appointment. We would like to see you for your first appointment between 8-9 weeks gestation to be sure you are able to take advantage of the screening blood tests that are offered. Your first OB visit will be your interview appointment where you will meet with a nurse. During that visit, you will be asked to complete a genetic screening questionnaire, which will help us evaluate your unborn baby. The nurse will go over all of our office policies and procedures, pregnancy education, as well as gather a thorough health history. Once you have decided whether you would like to see a physician or certified nurse midwife, we will schedule a follow-up appointment with your chosen provider approximately two weeks following the interview appointment. 

Between the first OB visit and 28 weeks, we would like you to schedule a visit every four weeks. Around 28 weeks, your visits will increase to every 2-3 weeks, then once a week after 36 weeks until delivery.

Brittany Piersanti was excited, yet nervous, about the birth of her second child. She delivered her first child via C-section and was unsure if she would be required to have a repeat C-section or if she would be a good candidate for a vaginal delivery. After careful consideration, Dr. Aronson determined that Brittany was a great candidate for a VBAC since it had been over one year since her first pregnancy. Brittany welcomed her son via successful vaginal delivery (VBAC) in August 2019! 

The Group proudly supports VBACs and feels confident when determining if patients are good candidates. The Group also has a lot of support at Genesis for VBACs. An in-house anesthesiologist is on staff at all times. If you live in or around the Quad Cities and are curious if you are a good candidate for a VBAC, we recommend contacting our team of physicians and midwives at The Group!

We are ready and willing to assist you with questions about your care, so please do not hesitate to contact us at 563.355.1853
