What to Expect for your First OB Visit

Preconception Health and Care
It is important to be healthy before pregnancy to ensure babies are less likely to be born early or have low birth weights. With preconception care, babies are also likely to be born without birth defects or other disabling conditions.

Normal Pregnancy Information

For the million questions a new mom-to-be may have, our providers try to cover all of the important things you may need to know so that you may rest a little easier during this time. Information like nutrition, exercise, morning sickness, dealing with back pain, and how your baby grows will be covered along with any other questions you may have.

 
Testing and Screening in Pregnancy
All of the routine testing in pregnancy and testing for fetal well-being will be conducted as well as screenings for birth defects, genetic disorders and cystic fibrosis to name a few.
Labor, Delivery, and Post-Partum
Our providers help soon-to-be-moms have a better understanding about what to expect during this exciting time of pregnancy. Information on preterm labor and birth, how to tell when labor begins, induction, fetal monitoring during labor, and pain relief during labor and delivery will be covered. Our providers also explain cesarean sections, vaginal births, newborn circumcision and dealing with postpartum issues like depression.
Kangaroo Care
We promote and educate our new moms on the benefits of the skin-to-skin contact, also known as Kangaroo Care. This has been recommended for all healthy term newborns by both the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists because of its positive effects on infants and their families.
It is associated with reduced crying and heart rate surges in the newborn. It promotes stabilization of the newborns temperature and promotes successful breastfeeding. Studies in low birth weight infants show a reduction in infections and newborn death, and has also shown an increase in weight, height and head growth.
