What is emergency pregnancy care?

Emergency pregnancy care at Feminine Urgicare is walk in and same-day medical care for problems that arise during pregnancy and after delivery. Feminine Urgicare also provides pregnancy testing. 

What prenatal issues need emergency pregnancy care?

Concerns during your pregnancy range from common discomforts to potentially serious health conditions. Connect with the Feminine Urgicare team for any prenatal problem, including: 

Nausea and vomiting

Nausea and vomiting begin during the first trimester and may continue throughout a woman's pregnancy. Emergency pregnancy care can help if you can’t find relief. Additionally, severe vomiting needs prompt attention to prevent dehydration, leading to complications like low amniotic fluid. 


While most women feel tired during their first trimester, extreme fatigue may be a sign of anemia, gestational diabetes, thyroid problems, or prenatal depression. 

Swelling caused by fluid retention

Swollen ankles and feet affect most pregnant women beginning in the second trimester. However, sudden swelling, especially in your face or hands, and rapid weight gain are signs of preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia is high blood pressure that begins during pregnancy. Without treatment, preeclampsia can lead to serious complications for the mother and baby. 


Though headaches are common during pregnancy, severe or sudden pain or headaches that don’t improve may signal preeclampsia. 


You need emergency pregnancy care if your dizziness worsens or you have other symptoms like blurred vision or shortness of breath. 

What postpartum concerns need emergency pregnancy care? 

The postpartum period begins right after birth and continues for about 12 weeks, a time when your body goes through dramatic changes.

Women often visit Feminine Urgicare to get help for postpartum issues such as:

  • Pain and cramping that don’t improve in a few days
  • Bleeding or discharge from a Cesarean incision
  • Painful breast engorgement
  • Excessive or ongoing bleeding
  • Difficulty breastfeeding
  • When to have sex
  • Constipation that doesn’t improve
  • Burning or pain when urinating
  • Concerns about weight gain
  • Postpartum depression

Symptoms like chest pain, difficulty breathing, severe abdominal pain, and heavy bleeding need care in the emergency room. 

When should I get a pregnancy test?

Urine tests are the most accurate pregnancy tests if you wait until after missing a period. Testing too early using a urine test can produce negative results even if you’re pregnant. However, a blood test can show if you’re pregnant six to eight days after conception.

Feminine Urgicare welcomes walk-in visits for pregnancy care and also schedules appointments if you call or book online.
