A great deal of research has gone into deciding what lab work is helpful to obtain during pregnancy in order to monitor the health of mom and growing baby.

The most common ones that you will be offered and the times in which they are drawn are listed below. These labs, unless noted to be optional, are considered to be the accepted standard of care during pregnancy.

First prenatal appointment if labs are drawn on the same day:

First Trimester

Additional labs may be recommended depending on your provider’s assessment of your health during your pregnancy.
