We offer complete obstetrical care including preconception counseling, prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care. We recommend that when you are considering conceiving, you should be evaluated before you become pregnant to review your medical history, your family's history and heritage, undergo a physical exam, and have any necessary testing including a Pap smear and blood work as appropriate. Any concerns or questions that you have can be addressed at that time as well. You are encouraged to take a multivitamin before you conceive as this has been shown to reduce the risk of spinal cord defects (spina bifida). Once you have conceived, we encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible to begin your prenatal care and get started on that right path to a safe and healthy pregnancy.
