Are you thinking about having a baby?
If you are planning to start or add to your family, we encourage you to schedule a visit with one of our providers before you are pregnant. Ideally, obstetrical care begins with pre-conceptual counseling. If you are having difficulty becoming pregnant, all of our providers offer infertility services as well.
We Welcome You to Our Family
Rather than limiting your pregnancy care to just one doctor, who may or may not be on-call when you go into labor, we encourage you to meet all of our delivering doctors over the course of your prenatal care. In this way, you will have ample time before delivery to develop a relationship each doctor on our team. Our patients find it comforting to be greeted by a familiar face on the big day. Since delivering babies in the hospital is a big part of what our doctors do, some of your prenatal visits will be scheduled with our nurse practitioners and physician assistants as well. At The Woman’s Health Pavilion, it’s important that each patient feels like a valued member of our family.
