Featuring Dr. Elise Balaisis, MD, FRCPC Second Trimester Prenatal Visits
Duration: 33 seconds

So as the pregnancy progresses in the second trimester, we continue to monitor your blood pressure at each visit, your urine at each visit, your weight at each visit, then, and we'll also start measuring the belly as we call that the synthesis fundal height, and we measure it just to make sure that the baby is growing as expected, and we'll continue that on until the end of the pregnancy.

If you have any further questions about your prenatal visits, please contact your maternity care provider.
