The first contact with the Maternity Outpatient Clinic is often ultrasound examinations of the early pregnancy, which are carried out at 11+6–13+6 and 20–22 weeks of pregnancy. The maternity health clinic (neuvola) will make the referral to the first ultrasound examination.

The most common reasons for visiting the Maternity Outpatient Clinic include:

  • hypertension
  • premature contractions
  • abnormal presentation (e.g. breech)
  • glucose metabolism disorders (gestational diabetes)
  • assessment of the method of delivery, due to the previous delivery
  • fetal size assessment.

In connection with the Maternity Outpatient Clinic, there is a Swedish and Finnish-speaking clinic providing treatment for the fear of childbirth as well as appointments available to see a nurse. At the nurse’s appointment, we will provide breastfeeding guidance to patients coming from home until the baby is 6 months old. At the appointment, we will also perform the physician’s and nurse’s check-ups for babies under the age of two weeks.
