Prenatal Care

The goal of prenatal care in the RMCHP is a healthy baby, a healthy mother and a healthy family. We encourage our patients and their families to participate in planning for the birth of their child.  Birth Planning has been shown to be instrumental in fostering healthy family relationships and establishing bonds between the baby, mother, spouse/ significant other, and other family members.

Pregnancy Tests

We offer urine pregnancy testing. Our pregnancy tests can detect a positive result in just 7-10 days after conception.

Prenatal care at UTMB RMCHP clinics includes the following services:

  • Comprehensive health history
  • Physical Exam
  • Screening for diabetes, sexually transmitted infection, high blood pressure and other medical problems
  • Lab Work
  • Prescriptions
  • Ultrasound
  • Prenatal Education
  • Consultation with a specialist if needed
  • Delivery at UTMB
  • Follow up care of mother and infant after birth
