As soon as you feel that you are pregnant, you should immediately run to the antenatal clinic and surrender to an experienced gynecologist. You will be given a medical record, which you will have to go with during the remaining months of pregnancy.
Typically, these cards are colorfully decorated and are not like a simple medical document, but a little book. By the way, there really is something to read! For example, in my pregnant card there were useful tips on behavior during childbirth, a couple of notes about the benefits of breastfeeding and other interesting things for the young lady in the situation.
In addition, these medcards adorn advertising local stores for expectant mothers, as well as retail outlets where you can buy products for babies. For me, some information from there was useful, it turned out that one good store had recently opened just a couple of blocks from our house.
So, what is included in the card pregnant? First of all, the results of all the numerous analyzes and functional studies are hemmed in here. Thus, experts will monitor the status of the fetus throughout the entire period of gestation.
In addition, the card will contain records of the medical commission, which each of us must pass at the beginning of pregnancy (the therapist, oculist, otolaryngologist, surgeon, etc.), as well as the marks of the gynecologist with whom you are registered. Your weight will be indicated here at each visit to the antenatal clinic. It is believed that too much increase is a cause for concern.
With this card you will go to the hospital to save (of course, if the need arises for this) and with it you will go to the maternity hospital. I remember that, of all the rather chubby medical books of obstetrician-gynecologists, only a few pieces of paper were interested – a negative result of tests for infectious diseases and STDs, and a number of studies proving the need for a caesarean section.
And now you will leave the maternity hospital with a new card. Rather, a medical certificate, on the basis of which in the children’s clinic will get a card on your newborn baby.
