Antenatal check-up


Pregnancy is a wonderful journey to motherhood. During the antenatal period, the nine months before delivery, regular antenatal check-up will predict, prevent and detect maternal and fetal complications during pregnancy. This is necessary because 15% of the pregnancies will have significant complications where treatments and interventions will be needed.


The symptoms of pregnancy include:

1.missed period

2.breast tenderness

3.nausea sensation and vomiting

4.increase frequency in urinating

5.backache and rib pain




Normally, the first antenatal visit will be carried out between five to 12 weeks of your missed period. The first visit is important to:

1.confirm pregnancy (not all missed period is due to pregnancy)

2.determine if pregnancy is still ongoing

3.determine gestational age and estimated date of delivery (EDD)

4.identify early pregnancy problems such as threatened miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy (embryo implants and grows outside the womb) and molar pregnancy (abnormal fertilization of an egg by sperm)
