Pregnancy is one of the most important times in a woman’s life. Having the proper care and knowledge is essential to a successful pregnancy and delivery of your baby. We provide full pregnancy care, from conception through delivery and into the postpartum period. Our experienced team can help you every step of the way on this incredible journey. We offer specialized care in family planning, prenatal care, and delivery.
Prenatal care is crucial to your baby’s healthy development. We recommend regular doctor’s visits to allow for professional monitoring of your baby’s health. A regular appointment should include checking the baby’s heart rate and checking your blood pressure, urine, and weight gain. Ultrasounds can be performed to further evaluate the baby’s development.
The term high-risk pregnancy sounds frightening, but most patients who have a high-risk pregnancy will have a normal pregnancy and birth experience, thanks to the careful monitoring by our physicians. A pregnant woman is considered high risk if a known medical condition has put herself, the fetus, or both at a higher-than-normal risk for complications during the pregnancy.
Women who are at a higher risk will typically be older than thirty-five years of age or younger than fifteen when they conceive. In addition, any history of previous birth defects, complications with prior pregnancies, or any known serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or diabetes, will put a woman into the high-risk category. Women who fall within this category are monitored carefully during their entire pregnancy.
