ANTENATAL CONSULTATION

Each consultation lasts one hour, to have time to answer all the questions of the mothers and contains:

  • Urine test (glucose and proteins)
  • Blood pressure, pulse, temperature, weight measurement
  • Medical history
  • Gynecological examination (palpation of the womb, fundal height, listening baby’s heartbeat, vaginal examination if necessary )
  • More general examination depending on the cause of appointment

These pregnancy consultations complete those received by the NHS or a private structure.
