Pregnancy Q & A

Tangchitnob MD

What is prenatal care?

If you just found out you’re pregnant, you’re probably excited, maybe slightly nervous, and sure to have lots of questions. The doctors at Tangchitnob MD are expert obstetricians who are happy to guide you through your pregnancy journey.

Prenatal care appointments at Tangchitnob MD begin with monitoring your health and counseling you on the best way to prepare your body and life for a successful delivery. In addition to a comprehensive exam and lab tests, the doctors may discuss issues that affect you and your baby, including:

  • Morning sickness
  • Nutrition and supplements
  • Medications you take
  • Existing medical conditions
  • Genetic testing for potential health risks

As your baby develops, they may discuss plans for labor and delivery and make recommendations depending on whether you have a high-risk or low-risk pregnancy.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

The Tangchitnob MD doctors are experienced in managing high-risk pregnancies, including:

  • Existing health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Pregnancy in teens or women over age 35
  • Twins or multiple births

When should I schedule prenatal appointments?

It’s best to schedule your first prenatal visit between the sixth and ninth weeks of your pregnancy. This is usually shortly after you discover you’re pregnant.

Prenatal appointments continue once a month until your third trimester. After that, you see your Tangchitnob MD doctor about every two weeks up to week 36. During the last month of your pregnancy, they see you once a week until you give birth.

What can I look forward to during an ultrasound?

Drs. Dumrong and Edward Tangchitnob are proud to be the only OB/GYNs in West Covina, California to offer advanced 3D/4D ultrasounds. This superior technology allows you to watch your baby suck their thumb, smile, or yawn while still in your womb.

Many expecting parents find this type of ultrasound to be a profoundly emotional experience, as it allows you to meet your baby for the first time. The Tangchitnob MD doctors want you to appreciate and treasure this opportunity, which is why they offer competitive pricing for HD3D ultrasounds.
