Getting started in your pregnancy
Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to Exceptional Care for Women. We are pleased and honored you have chosen our group to care for you during this exciting time. Your first visit tends to be the longest of your prenatal visits, as a comprehensive review of your health history and physical exam are performed. In an effort to provide you with the best care for your pregnancy, we have compiled a questionnaire that will allow us to collect the health history necessary to identify risks for you and your baby. Having the health history forms (provided below) completed prior to your appointment time will help ensure that your visit goes smoothly. Again, please complete these forms prior to your visit. They can be faxed to the office at 719-884-9963 or dropped off at the front desk Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm.
Please begin taking an over-the-counter prenatal vitamin (that has at least 400mcg folic acid and contains DHA) right away, if you haven’t already. If you have already had care somewhere else during this pregnancy, please request copies of those medical records and bring them to your appointment for our review or drop them by the office prior to your visit.
At the conclusion of your first prenatal visit, your prenatal labs will be drawn. Our receptionist will then schedule you for a return OB visit as well as a genetic screening study, if you choose this optional testing.
We look forward to seeing you soon for your visit and thank you for allowing us to care for you and your baby. We recognize that you are busy and we greatly appreciate you arriving 15 minutes early for your visit, to complete the registration and check in process.
Adoption, Surrogacy and Gestational Carriers:
If you are considering or have chosen to place your baby for adoption, we will support you in any way possible throughout your pregnancy, delivery and adoption process. Let us know if you need a referral to a responsible adoption agency.
Surrogate pregnancies, however, have the potential to generate complex ethical, legal and social issues with which we are not comfortable. If you consider yourself a surrogate mother or gestational carrier, it is best that you seek obstetric care elsewhere.
Seeing us for gynecology care
We look forward to taking care of your gynecologic needs, whether it be for your annual gynecologic exam or a problem you are having. Having the health history forms (provided below) completed prior to your appointment time will help ensure that your visit goes smoothly. We recognize that you are busy and we greatly appreciate you arriving 15 minutes early for your visit, to complete the registration and check in process.
