Services Include:

Our services include:

  • Pre-pregnancy counseling - One of the most important steps you can take to have a healthy pregnancy is to see a health care provider before you conceive.  Your physician may recommend preconception visit with our practice to discuss:
    • Existing medical conditions
    • Medications you are taking
    • Complications in a prior pregnancy
    • Significant family history.
  • Consultative services, including:
    • Bedrest Survival Kit - Complications of pregnancy may require an expectant mom to on bedrest for a portion of her pregnancy.  We distribute a packet of information, useful tips and resource to help patients get through this.
    • Multiple Gestation Guide - When a woman is carrying two or more babies they require special care and have unique issues and questions.  They are also at increased risk for certain pregnancy complications.  Our Multiple Gestation Guide provides valuable information and helps answer many questions.
    • Gestational Diabetes Program - If you’ve been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, you may be referred to our practice for comprehensive diabetic care while still seeing your obstetric care provider for routine prenatal care. You will learn about how this may affect your pregnancy and what you can do to promote a healthy pregnancy, delivery and baby.  Along with your medical care, registered dieticians provide education and follow up related to your special diet.  The program includes weekly contact to review your progress and provide additional information and support.
  • Providing comprehensive prenatal care including the delivery of patients that have been transferred to the practice due to the high-risk nature of the pregnancy
  • Diagnostic or therapeutic procedures during pregnancy including:
  • Perinatal Diagnostic Center, accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM)
  • Referral to a peer support network - Complications during pregnancy can be frightening and confusing.  It’s often helpful to speak with someone else who understands what you are experiencing. Through our practice, you are able to speak with other high risk mothers with similar problems.
