Pregnancy Lab Tests

Pregnancy

Pregnancy blood tests are essential for monitoring maternal and fetal health, detecting complications, and assessing hormone levels, blood type, and infections. They also help in early detection of genetic abnormalities. Regular testing ensures a safer, healthier pregnancy journey for both mother and child.

Our Pregnancy Lab Tests Services

If you’re early in your pregnancy or are waiting to confirm pregnancy, you should have some lab work done to check for infections and antibody levels, confirm your blood type, check for anemia, thyroid function, etc. Your primary care provider will provide you with the requisition or you can schedule an appointment with one of our team members to order your initial prenatal lab work.

When you are between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy, it is recommended to be screened for diabetes using the glucose tolerance test. You will be given a sugary beverage and a blood sample will be collected one hour later. The entire appointment may take up to 90 minutes. Your lab results will be sent directly to the ordering provider (i.e. midwife, family physician, nurse practitioner, or obstetrician). If you need a requisition, please schedule an appointment with one of our nurse practitioners before scheduling your appointment.

If your provider suspects that you have gestational diabetes based on the Gestational Diabetes Screen, you may have the Glucose Tolerance Test ordered. You need for fast (not eat) overnight and the nurse will collect a blood sample to check your blood glucose. You will be given a sugary beverage and will have two more blood samples collected at the 1 hour mark and again at the 2 hour mark. In total, the entire appointment is expected to take about two and a half hours. Results will be sent directly to the ordering provider.

Jessica came to see me at my home very last minute and she was incredible. I had been sick for more than a month at that point and was having no luck with walk in clinics. She took the time to examine me and talk to me about the potential issues. I haven't had a doctor's appointment like that in more than a decade. She also called me as soon as the lab work came back and I appreciate so much. Jessica is caring and compassionate and the absolute best. I can't imagine going back to a walk-in clinic ever again.
The care provided by Jessica, and the coordination provided by Judy, has been exceptional for me. I have not been able to secure a GP since moving provinces for school, which is incredibly challenging living with a complex health condition. Jessica truly takes the time to listen, get a holistic picture of your health concerns, answer all of your questions, and provide ample suggestions and solutions that you are comfortable with. She has been nothing short of amazing since accessing services, and was able to provide options for me I was not able to get after repeated ER visits. I am very grateful for her kindness and expertise as it relates to women's health and pain management - which rivals any doctor I have met to date - and I look forward to being a long-term patient under her care.
