Normal Pregnancy – Prenatal care, also known as antenatal care is a type of preventive healthcare, with the goal of providing regular check-ups that allow doctors to treat and prevent potential health problems throughout the course of the pregnancy while promoting a healthy lifestyle that benefits both mother and child. To learn more about healthy options for mommy and baby, visit our blog!
High Risk Pregnancy – A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother or her fetus. For most women, early and regular prenatal care promotes a healthy pregnancy and delivery without complications. A normal pregnancy can turn into a high-risk pregnancy at any time. We specialize in all aspects of high risk pregnancies that include Diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple babies, thyroid and other endocrine abnormalities, fetal growth abnormalities, pre-term deliveries placental abnormalities, previous cesarean sections and many more. We accomplish optimal care for your pregnancy by closely coordinating your care with you and a Perinatologist. We practice in accordance with current pregnancy guidelines. This allows you and your baby the best possible outcome.
Ultrasound – A prenatal ultrasound (also called a sonogram) is a noninvasive diagnostic test that uses sound waves to create a visual image of your baby, placenta, and uterus, as well as other pelvic organs. Ultrasounds are performed at different stages during pregnancy. To learn more about ultrasounds visit our blog!
Fetal Assessment – Fetal monitoring during pregnancy is used to assess fetal wellbeing. This article addresses the goals of fetal monitoring during pregnancy. Methods of fetal surveillance are reviewed, as well as the meaning of abnormal fetal testing and how these results relate to fetal and neonatal outcome.
Hospital Deliveries – All deliveries take place conveniently nearby at St. Rose Siena and Henderson Hospitals. Surgeries are scheduled at St. Rose Siena, Henderson Hospital and Henderson Surgery Center.
Considering natural child-birth at the hospital? Take a peek at these four helpful tips:
- Get a solid prenatal education (we can help you with this!)
- Try to manage your weight gain, as it does make labor and delivery a little easier.
- Go for a low-intervention pregnancy.
- Enjoy the process – giving life is a beautiful thing!
What to pack for labor
- A picture ID (driver’s license or other ID), your insurance card, and any hospital paperwork you need.
- Eyeglasses, if you wear them.
- A bathrobe, a nightgown or two, slippers, and socks.
- Whatever will help you relax, i.e., music, soundscapes of rainforests, beachy waves or hummingbirds fluttering!
Preconception Care – Preconception care is defined as a set of interventions that aim to identify and modify biomedical, behavioral and social risks to the woman’s health or pregnancy outcome through prevention and management. Certain steps should be taken before conception or early in pregnancy to maximize health outcomes. To learn more about preconception care, contact our office today.
Post-delivery care – The postpartum period refers to the first six weeks after childbirth. During these weeks, you’ll bond with your baby and you’ll have a post-delivery checkup with your doctor. Don’t forget to really take care of yourself at this time and to allow others to help care for you as well. This is a joyous time, but it’s also a period of adjustment and healing for mothers. At this time, we address issues related to breast feeding, breast care, continued medical attention to issues identified in pregnancy, and contraception.
Tubal Ligation – Tubal ligation, often referred to as “having your tubes tied,” is a surgical procedure in which a woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked, tied, or cut. Either procedure stops eggs from traveling from the ovaries into the fallopian tubes, where the egg is normally fertilized by a sperm. How long does it take to recover? Usually, after a laparoscopy, it’s about a week’s recovery time. After a mini-laparotomy, it usually takes 1 to 3 weeks. If you had a mini-laparotomy after having a baby, your recovery may take longer. You will be protected from pregnancy right away.
Genetic Assessment – We offer elective screening for Down’s Syndrome, Neural Tube Defects and Cystic Fibrosis.
