What is antenatal care?

Antenatal care encompasses the care provided throughout your pregnancy journey. You will attend a series of appointments with a midwife or, if necessary, an obstetrician. These healthcare professionals will monitor your and your baby’s well-being, offer guidance on pregnancy-related matters, and address any concerns you may have.

The aim is to ensure a healthy pregnancy, minimise risks, and prepare you for labor and delivery. Antenatal care involves regular check-ups, screenings, and personalised advice tailored to your needs, all aimed at optimising the health outcomes for both you and your baby.

When should a pregnant lady start going for antenatal classes?

In Dubai, antenatal classes are typically advised to be attended when you are around 32 to 40 weeks pregnant, ideally 8 to 10 weeks before the expected due date. This timing ensures that expectant parents are well-prepared for labor, delivery, and early parenthood. However, certain circumstances may warrant adjustments to this schedule. For instance, individuals with high-risk pregnancies or those facing specific medical needs might benefit from attending classes earlier or later. Consulting with healthcare professionals can help determine the most appropriate timing for attending antenatal classes tailored to individual needs and circumstances.

What happens at the first antenatal visit?

The first antenatal visit, often referred to as the initial prenatal appointment, is crucial in establishing care for both the pregnant mother and their developing baby. To ease you into your pregnancy journey, we have put together a prenatal care guide for expecting moms! Here’s what to expect during your first appointment:

Medical History and Physical Examination

We will first review your medical history, including any past pregnancies, medical conditions, and medications you are currently taking, if any. This is then followed by a thorough physical examination, which may include measuring your blood pressure, weight, and height.

Laboratory Tests

You may be asked to provide blood and urine samples for routine laboratory tests to check for conditions like anemia, infections, and gestational diabetes.


Depending on your gestational age, you may undergo an ultrasound to confirm your due date and check on the baby's development.


Our midwife will discuss important prenatal care topics with you, such as nutrition, exercise, and prenatal vitamins. You can also take this opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding your pregnancy.

Follow-up Visits

We will schedule your next prenatal visit and any additional tests or screenings that may be needed throughout your pregnancy.

Additional Tests

Depending on your individual situation, we may conduct various tests, including:


  • Urine test to check for protein, glucose, white blood cells, blood, and bacteria.
  • Bloodwork to determine blood type, Rh status, anemia, antibody levels, immunity to certain diseases, and possibly vitamin D deficiency.
  • Genetic carrier screening for common genetic conditions.
  • STD tests for infections like hepatitis B, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV.
  • Blood sugar test if you have a history of gestational diabetes or are at higher risk.
