What to expect from your obstetrician

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life. We are here to provide excellent care before, during, and after your pregnancy. Knowing what to expect from our staff and your appointments lessens your stress, and helps you make informed choices about your care.

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life.

Your initial appointment is generally scheduled when you are 7-9 weeks pregnant. Subsequent appointments are scheduled every 4 weeks. The first appointment will be the longest. At this time, your doctor will gather your health history, perform an examination, and make sure you have the appropriate prenatal vitamins. Questions and concerns will be addressed. Your doctor will provide you with information on how to increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy.

During the first trimester, appointments with your obstetrician are every 4 weeks. During this stage, you will have blood work and a urine analysis. A fetal Doppler allows you and your physician to hear your baby’s heartbeat. An ultrasound will also be done during the first trimester.

Throughout the second trimester, appointments are every 4 weeks. You will be weighed, and your abdomen will be measured at each appointment to track fetal growth. Additional screenings, including those that check for birth defects or abnormalities may be offered at this time. At the 20-week ultrasound, you will once again have the chance to see your baby.

During the third trimester, you will be tested for gestational diabetes and group B strep. Your doctor will discuss these tests with you as they approach. You will begin to see your doctor every 2 weeks and then every week when you are 36 weeks pregnant. As your due date nears, signs of labor will be discussed, and your cervix will be checked.

Postnatal care is important. Five to six weeks after you deliver you will have a postpartum appointment with your doctor. This allows your doctor to check for proper healing. Your OBGYN can answer questions regarding breastfeeding, mental health, and birth control.

Our Northwestern GYN team is highly skilled and experienced. We strive to make you feel at ease and to address your concerns in a friendly, compassionate manner. Your health and your baby’s health are our highest priorities. We are experienced with normal pregnancies as well as these that are high-risk. If you have a complicated pregnancy, your appointment and screening schedule will be personalized to allow a more closely monitored pregnancy.

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By Gerilynn H.

    Dr. Regina Belmonte has been providing all the services I have needed for over 12 years. She saw me through both of my pregnancies and her expertise is vast. Even after I moved far away from the city, I still embrace and look forward to her care and services, and I refuse to switch doctors. She is worth the trip! Going through both pregnancies I had to meet with all of the Dr's. and all were wonderful. The nurses are fantastic. I have gotten 98% of what I have ever needed just talking to a nurse. So grateful for this practice and so confident with the care I receive.

    Dr. Abbie Roth is GOLD!
    I have never met a doctor who is caring and brilliant and with a great sense of humor as doctor Abbie Roth. She is very professional and has an excellent bedside manner. When I had a life threatening complication after my C-section, she and her Prentice team of doctors and nurses were such an efficient team under pressure while making sure they explain every process and steps during the situation. Dr. Abbie Roth and her team literally saved my life! I am very fortunate to have met Dr. Roth, I will never forget her and will continue to see her for my future OB/Gyne health. I highly recommend this practice and Dr. Roth!

    If you are new to Chicago or are just looking for a new physician, please make an appointment with Dr. Friedell. This is the first time in my adult life, that a doctor spent an hour with me going over my medical history, asking questions and documenting my history accurately. His assessment and subsequent surgery were all done t a T! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or his staff. I have had very positive experiences every time I've gone and I always leave feeling like I've been really seen and heard.

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By Monica E.

    I was recommended to NWWH through a friend after a year of unsuccessful IUI with my partner. We were seen and cared for by Dr. Friedell. Best decision ever. You will definitely wait for the doctor for maybe 30 minutes past your appointment time but you will not regret it. His thoroughness and patience to explain everything to us in a way we understood was amazing. He was quick to start a game plan for us. We will definitely stick with Dr. Friedell as our OB/GYN.

    Apart from Dr. Friedell, the staff was quick to perform any lab work and ultrasounds with friendly conversation and compassion. This type of service really helps when we've gone through a rough time trying to get pregnant. Definitely make an appointment with Dr. Friedell.

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By Jennifer H.

    I have been going to Dr. Friedell for over a year now and he has been nothing less than amazing. When I first came to him to discuss pregnancy, he was incredibly informative and understanding. He was also willing to take the time to answer all of my questions and help in any way he could. He just delivered my son in March and to say he went the extra mile during delivery would be an understatement. I had some complications and with any other doctor I would have had a c-section. Dr. Friedell worked with me and was extremely patient and because of his care and expertise I had a successful vaginal delivery. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By Karima R.

    I have been going to this office for little over a month now due to some complications! I have been seen Dr. Friedell, he is very caring and always made sure he answers all my concerns. I am beyond impressed with my experience with Dr Friedell and his PA " Amber". Dr Friedell called me many times after hours to talk to me about my medical results and answers any concerns that I have.

    I would highly recommend Dr Friedell.

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By Elizabeth T.

    I have been a patient of this practice for over 5 years now and have only positive reviews of Dr. Feldstein. He was the doctor on call and delivered my third son without any complications. He was knowledgeable, patient focused and went above and beyond to answer my questions and provide a safe and healthy delivery. I also want to note his positive bedside manner to not only my husband and I, but to the nursing staff that was working with him. He was very respectful and I am very thankful to have had him for my delivery. I would recommend this group, Dr. Feldstein in particular without reservation.

    5 Dr. Stanley Friedell, 5 Star Review By LA

    I switched to Dr. Roth mid pregnancy due to health insurance reasons and it was probably the best decision I have ever made in my life. She is definitely warm and funny but also extremely competent and knowledgeable. I would say what makes her stand out from other doctors is how calm and not reactive she is in even the most dire situations. My son was in serious fetal distress (unexpected and not preventable) and she was very calm and reassuring as we literally ran to the OR for my c section. With the rise of c sections today I feel Dr. Roth is one of the few remaining fabulous ob's that truly plans for normal vaginal births (your choice if you want an epi or not) and although I needed a c section I knew it was truly necessary. I could not speak more highly of her, not only did she save my sons life but she made me feel safe, secure and empowered even when decisions and actions were out of my hands.

    I can not tell you how wonderful my experiences have been. Dr. Sharon Wise is my doctor and she is fantastic. She is straightforward and honest about treatments and procedures. I enjoy her sense of humor, and I found her bedside manner when delivering my son to be excellent.
