We provide full pregnancy care, from conception through delivery and even longer. 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. Regular doctor's visits are recommended and will 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 visually check on 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 of 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 over 35 years of age or younger than 15 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 type 1 diabetes, will put one into the high-risk category. Women who fall within this category are monitored carefully during their entire pregnancy.
