Pregnancy is an exciting time. There are many questions that come along with the process. If you’ve taken a home pregnancy test and it is positive, we recommend making an appointment with your doctor to get prenatal care started early. Once prenatal care has started, many women wonder when they should call or visit the hospital outside their regularly scheduled prenatal appointments.
They want to make sure that everything with baby is healthy and going smoothly with the pregnancy, but may not want to visit their doctor for a false alarm. If there are ever concerns don’t hesitate to call. We’ll answer your pregnancy questions. There are a number of instances when you should always reach out to your provider and/or come in to the hospital.
When To Call or Visit the Hospital
- Contractions are 3-5 minutes apart
- You think your water broke
- Vaginal bleeding
- Cannot walk or talk through your contractions
- You want something for the pain
- Baby is not moving as usual
