Updated: Feb 5, 2021

We have made it easier to understand the follow up needed in your pregnancy.

Your pregnancy care timeline

Follow Ups:

  • Follow up appointments are usually every 4 weeks until you reach 28 weeks gestation, then every two weeks until 36 weeks gestation, then every week until delivery.

  • You may request an extra follow up appointment any time as needed by calling our clinic or requesting a follow up appointment online by clicking here.


Estimated Delivery Date:

  • Your estimated date of delivery will be calculated after your first trimester ultrasound. This is a date that corresponds to 40 weeks gestation and does not change throughout the pregnancy.



  • An ultrasound to determine your estimated date of delivery is usually requested in your first trimester (Dating ultrasound).

  • To assess fetal anatomy, an anatomy ultrasound is performed between 18-20 weeks gestation.

  • An additional ultrasound for fetal growth assessment may be required around 30 weeks gestation.

  • Additional or more frequent ultrasounds may be requested throughout the pregnancy for various other monitoring reasons.



  • Screening in pregnancy is done to evaluate the risk of chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. This consists of a combination of blood work and an ultrasound between 11 and 13.6 weeks.

  • There are several apps you may use to track your pregnancy and learn more information about pregnancy care. We recommend the OMama website and app as a trusted resource. You may find it by clicking on this link
