Your First Appointment

Depending upon your medical history, your first appointment may include:

  • An in-depth consultation
  • An ultrasound
  • A meeting with a genetic counselor from the Prenatal Diagnosis Program

Your first appointment may take as long at three hours. Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time so you have time to register and complete medical questionnaires.

Non-DHMC patients

If you are receiving prenatal care from a place other than DHMC or Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heater Road, we must have a copy of all of your prenatal records and any other important medical information before your first appointment.

Cost of our services

Many insurance companies cover most of the services we provide. Some insurance companies require that you have a referral from another doctor before visiting specialists such as those in the High-Risk Pregnancy team. Please check with your insurance company to see if you need a referral before your first appointment.
