The obstetrician is the privileged interlocutor of the future parents. They accompany and reassure them throughout the pregnancy, e.g. as soon as it is confirmed or at the end of the third month at the latest and up until one month after the birth.

They have an important role in the prevention, diagnosis, and follow-up of all pathologies related to pregnancy and childbirth.

In the case of a low-risk pregnancy, 7 to 10 visits are to be expected, as well as 3 main ultrasounds and regular blood and urine tests, especially to detect gestational diabetes.

The obstetrician ensures that the pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period run smoothly.

Pregnancy follow-up

THE FIRST VISIT: The obstetrician interviews the patient to learn their personal, medical, and family history, obstetric and gynaecological history, and lifestyle. The obstetrician also determines the date of conception.

MONTHLY VISITS: The obstetrician ensures that the pregnancy is going well. They check the blood pressure and urine analysis and may perform a control ultrasound.


  1. The main purpose of the 12-week ultrasound is to determine the baby’s risk of Down’s syndrome, which is based, among other factors, on the measurement of nuchal translucency.
  2. The 22-week ultrasound, known as the morphological ultrasound, allows for a detailed study of the foetal anatomy and thus excludes certain major malformations.
  3. At 32 weeks, the ultrasound is used to obtain an estimate of the child’s weight.
