It is no secret that a woman’s childbearing years are some of the most important times in her life! Your initial prenatal visit with us will last approximately one hour. During that visit, we will discuss how to achieve a healthy pregnancy, highlighting issues of lifestyle, diet, exercise, and education.
We will thoroughly review your health history and go over what you should expect from us in regards to your prenatal care. Laboratory tests will be recommended based on your individual needs. The midwives will recommend and offer all of the same laboratory and diagnostic tests, like ultrasounds, as any other type of provider that cares for pregnant women. One difference you will notice is that our midwives will take the time to discuss with you what we recommend and why, instead of just sending you to the lab uninformed. It is also important for us to point out that we can draw the majority of the necessary lab tests in our office, preventing you from having to go out and wait at a lab. We work with a board certified obstetrician should there be any concerns that develop during your pregnancy or during your birth. In addition we collaborate with the Magella Medical Group where we coordinate any specialized ultrasounds that may be needed.
