    It is the best moment when a woman feels that the new life has started inside her body! From this moment she has to take care not only of herself but also of her baby. A doctor should carefully monitor the mother-to-be to prevent any complications that may emerge during her pregnancy. Doctor’s advice in this period is valuable because, in this condition, the woman experiences physiological and psychological changes of her body.

    Pregnancy supervision is an active supervision program of a mother-to-be performed by professionals working in the clinic PARENS-Ukraine in Lviv. This program enables to control all the peculiarities of mother and child’s health. Irrespectively of health status and age, the doctor prescribes several diagnostic procedures and basing on their results, the one decides on additional procedures or consultations. Obstetrician-gynecologist performs pregnancy supervision, but examinations by other specialists may also be performed.

    Obstetrician-gynecologists recommend registering her pregnancy as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed, but no later than after 11th pregnancy week.
    In this way, it is possible to start supervision early and prevent:

    • Fetal pathology;
    • Risk of extrauterine pregnancy;
    • Hazard of pregnancy maintenance in an inpatient facility;
    • Development of severe morning sickness;
    • Hormonal or immune disorders;
    • Development of inflammations.

    After the pregnant woman is registered, the doctor performs the initial examination. After that, the ultrasound is prescribed to evaluate the condition of uterus and fetus and confirm the pregnancy term.

    The pregnancy supervision involves the following tests:

    • Blood, urine test (general);
    • Biochemical test;
    • Infection test (ТORCH-infections);
    • Blood type and Rh factor
    • Oncocytologic investigation;
    • Urogenital infection test;
    • Coagulability test;
    • CTG-test.

    Pregnancy care involves consultations with other specialists: ENT, endocrinologist, ophthalmologist, psychologist, GP, dentist.

    It is important to state that the general urine and blood test is performed on every appointment with a gynecologist. A doctor prescribes a test to detect genetic abnormalities individually for every case and it depends on the health of the patient in the course of pregnancy supervision.

    During the examination, it may turn out that the mother-to-be has a negative Rh. This situation requires a special approach because a woman’s body produces antibodies that perceive the child as a non-indigenous organism. The doctor prescribes antibody blood analysis every month, and if the decrease in fetal erythrocytes is detected, the specialist recommends the injection of a special vaccine. That is why pregnancy supervision is necessary on all the stages.

    In case of a multiple pregnancy, the strain on a woman’s body is sufficiently increased. Such a condition poses a higher level of danger to the health of the mother-to-be: there might be a kidney failure, anemia, premature labor. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the development of babies. The doctor who supervises pregnancy does all his best to maintain both fetuses and their proper development.
