Pregnancy Resources & Questions

Pregnancy comes with exciting changes, but those changes often lead to questions and concerns. Our triage nurse or on call doctor are always available via phone;  however, we've compiled a list of some of the most common questions that patients ask below:

Is vaginal bleeding normal in pregnancy?


No. You should always notify your health care provider if you are experiencing vaginal bleeding during pregnancy.




I'm over 37 weeks now, when should I head to the hospital?


You should head to the hospital if you experience any of the following:

  • Contractions closer than 6 minutes apart lasting longer than 1 hour
  • Leaking clear fluid
  • Having vaginal bleeding
  • Decreased fetal movement after doing a "kick count"
    • If you baby seems to be moving less and you are concerned, drink something sweet or caffinated and then lie in a dark room with your hand on your tummy for 1 hour. If your baby moves less than 10 times (every flutter or movement counts) during that hour you should head to the hospital.
