Prenatal care is the care you receive throughout your pregnancy, before your baby’s birth. Prenatal check-ups are an opportunity for your provider to make sure you and your baby are as healthy as possible. Regular visits to your doctor or midwife can help us spot problems before they become serious complications.
You and your provider will review your medical history at your first prenatal appointment. Your provider will identify risk factors that could affect your pregnancy or your baby. You’ll also have a physical exam and lab tests and your provider will calculate your due date.
Our midwives believe in empowering you to take an active role in your own healthcare. We treat you as a whole person, with a more natural process.
Certified nurse midwives can take care of your pregnancy care needs. They offer fertility, nutrition and exercise counseling. They also provide expert care during labor and delivery and care after birth.
Our midwives deliver in a hospital setting. So if a concern arises during your birth, they have immediate access to consult with or get assistance from our board-certified obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists and neonatologists. The safety of you and your baby is our top priority.
