Is that normal? What is a normal amount of kicks? Is this too many? Too few? I don’t feel my baby yet, is that normal?!

Whew! Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in your life, and also one of the most anxiety-inducing. From worries about hCG levels to flutters and kicks, from birth plans to postpartum care, your mind may be a whirlwind of questions, concerns, and possibilities.

Luckily, your healthcare provider can help calm your anxiety, answer your questions, and help you handle things one step at a time. Feeling supported and heard is important in every healthcare journey.

Part of preparing for your first prenatal appointments likely includes a lot of research, and we recommend writing down all your questions and concerns. It’s entirely normal for a pregnant woman to feel overwhelmed by the planning, learning and preparation that happens over the course of 40 weeks.

Do you want a certified nurse midwife or physician for your birth dream team? What does your birth plan include? What happens if you need a cesarean? Does morning sickness always happen in the morning? Don’t worry. We’ve got your questions answered, before you even know you have them. Our healthcare blog is full of helpful articles and resources to help you become a knowledgeable, confident mom, long before your baby arrives. 

Whether it’s your first or your fifth baby, whether it’s routine or high-risk, we’re here for you every step of the way. Pregnancy is an enjoyable experience when you’re backed by providers who will support you, week in and week out, no matter what goals or concerns you have. 

Our favorite part of caring for pregnant moms (besides getting to see those beautiful babies)? Continuing to care for you after the baby comes. We partner with women at every stage of life, from teen health to prenatal, postpartum, perimenopause, and beyond. 

A lifelong ObGyn partnership means you get the care you want and deserve, from providers you trust. At Southdale, we love getting to know our patients as people, with a focus on your choice and your voice — no matter where you are in life.
