Doctor Rosemary Leitch Ob/Gyn practioners provide care for patients with normal pregnancies. We also arrange certain high risk pregnancy situations.

Prenatal Care


The staff of Doctor Rosemary Leitch Ob/Gyn attempts to provide prenatal care incorporating the most up to date practices. We include information from the Cochrane collaboration for effective care in childbirth and pregnancy into our plans of care.

Traditionally, low risk patients in our office receive 14 to 16 prenatal visits. During these visits we will check your urine and blood pressure. Blood tests will be required during the initial visits and again as needed. Measurements of your abdominal growth, your weight and listening of the fetal heart will be performed. Additional forms of monitoring will also occur especially as you approach the time of delivery.

Please feel free to call our nursing staff for major concerns that occur between office visits.

A pregnancy is divided into three trimesters as follows:
  • 1st trimester 0 -13 weeks
  • 2nd trimester 14-28 weeks
  • 3rd trimester 29 - term

Am I Pregnant?


Pregnancy tests are available in our office or they can be purchased from a pharmacy. The most accurate method of testing is blood testing for the hormone beta hcg to determine if the pregnancy is healthy, multiple blood tests spread out over several days may be necessary. If you get a positive result call the office for an appointment and begin prenatal vitamins with folic acid as soon as possible.

Preconceptual Counseling


Many patients choose to take the opportunity to meet with one of our physicians prior to becoming pregnant.
