Having a baby is a special chapter in life that reads differently for each woman; every baby, every mom, and every experience is unique. Yet prenatal care is crucial for everyone, no matter how this marvelous adventure unfolds for your family.
One of the most loving steps you can take for yourself and your baby is to connect with the care that best meets your physical and emotional needs.
Individually Tailored Care
Navigating pregnancy and delivery is a process filled with diverse choices and a range of challenges. Some women even have different experiences from one pregnancy to the next, so it’s crucial to engage with a provider who can adjust your care to fit your current, individual needs.
Your Health Matters to Us and to Your Baby.
If you’re pregnant or planning to get pregnant, open the conversation with a provider. The first step to a healthy pregnancy is a healthy mom.
As you enter into pregnancy, your health can potentially affect the baby’s birth weight and the development of complications during pregnancy. Your provider will empower you with tools to strengthen your body and to give your baby a healthy start.
Obstetricians are board-certified physicians who specialize in the care of pregnancy and childbirth. They are with you throughout the crucial prenatal period all the way through delivery and postnatal care.
A supportive provider will be a partner in your pregnancy – maintaining open lines of communication, answering your questions as they arise, and guiding you as you set your birth goals and preferences.
They will provide care for you in a number of ways:
- Monitor your health and your baby’s health
- Perform ultrasounds, measurements, and additional tests as needed
- Help you cope with pregnancy related side effects
- Monitor and manage high-risk pregnancy concerns
- Answer your questions about pregnancy and delivery
- Provide pain medication during delivery, if desired
- Deliver your baby, either vaginally or via c-section
- Provide postnatal care
