Prenatal appointment schedule

Pregnant women visit the doctor or midwife a lot. Typically, women will have between 10 and 15 appointments during their pregnancy. If you have a partner or labor coach, you may want that person to come to some of these appointments with you.

Generally, expectant moms visit their OB or midwife every four weeks during the first and second trimesters. You’ll be seen more often during your third trimester, typically once every two weeks until 36 weeks, then weekly until your baby is born.

However, depending on your medical history and whether you have a condition that develops during your pregnancy, you may have more frequent prenatal visits.
