Antepartum testing at Moses Taylor Hospital is a procedure that involves the use of an electronic fetal monitor or ultrasound to determine the well-being of your baby during your pregnancy. Antepartum testing can start as early as 24 weeks but usually begins after 32 weeks of pregnancy, depending on the mother’s progress. Antepartum testing can help identify any problems or changes that may require additional testing or interventions. The testing results reflect how well the placenta is functioning in its ability to adequately supply blood and oxygen to your baby. The staff at Moses Taylor will discuss with you what to expect, how long the test may take, what it means and why it is being done. As with any procedure, we encourage open dialogue with your OB/GYN and our staff; please don’t hesitate to ask questions.
