Third Trimester

Prenatal Care During the Third Trimester

Be sure to continue to visit your healthcare provider during your third trimester, and ask him or her to answer your questions and address your concerns about labor and delivery.
 
As the birth of your baby gets closer, you and your healthcare provider will discuss what kind of delivery you will have. Some women need to have a cesarean section (c-section), in which a surgical incision is made in the abdomen and uterus to remove the baby. If you are able to plan on a non-surgical, vaginal birth, you may want to have your baby naturally, without medications, and you may want to take a childbirth class.
 
Many women find childbirth classes helpful, even if they have already had a baby. Women usually bring their partners or a friend or relative to these classes, particularly if this person will be with them to offer support and coaching during the birth of their baby.
