Featuring Dr. Elise Balaisis, MD, FRCPC

Duration: 36 seconds

In the third trimester we like to again, continue to monitor the growth of the baby, and to continue to monitor your blood pressure and how you're doing.

But we also like to do make sure the baby's moving well and so that's something we ask each mom, is what are the fetal movements like? And, just to make sure that that's going well.

We also listen to the fetal heart rate at each visit, in order to make sure that everything is okay on that front.

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