Congratulations! Learning you're pregnant is usually a day filled with great joy, a lot of excitement, and a little bit of worry. A great obstetrics team can help ease your fears and make sure that you and your baby receive the best care available.
The best way to ensure that you have a healthy delivery and baby is to take good care of yourself while you're pregnant and to see your OB/GYN regularly. At the Center for Women’s Health of Wichita, our board-certified OB/GYN, Sharon Breit, MD, and her team can provide the care and guidance you need to have a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Why is prenatal and obstetric care important?
Prenatal visits help you learn what's going on with you and your baby and also make sure both you and your baby are healthy and strong as your pregnancy progresses. To ensure you receive the best care possible, you should schedule an appointment as soon as you find out you're pregnant.
Regular prenatal visits also give you a chance to ask questions to help you better prepare for your new baby. After your first visit, you should schedule an appointment every other week until you're 28-35 weeks pregnant and then weekly after week 35.
After that, you should schedule weekly doctor visits to be closely monitored until the big day. If we detect a complication, we may ask you to visit more frequently.
At every visit, Dr. Breit checks your blood pressure, measures your weight gain and abdomen growth, and performs a physical exam to make sure everything looks good. She also checks the baby's heartbeat, which you can listen to as well.
Why should I trust Dr. Breit?
Everyone wants an experienced doctor they know and trust. At the Center for Women's Health, Dr. Breit uses the most advanced technology available while also showing great compassion and understanding to her patients.
Dr. Breit is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which means she has received advanced training and passed rigorous exams in her field. Dr. Breit delivers 98% of all her patients' babies and is on call when it's time for your child to arrive.
