Prenatal care is the health care you receive while you’re pregnant. Getting health care as early as possible in pregnancy is important because it ensures that you and your baby get off to the healthiest start. We at Center for Women’s Health also recommend a pre-pregnancy (or pre-conception visit) to discuss the management of any health challenges you may face during pregnancy
If you have a high-risk pregnancy or chronic medical condition like diabetes or high blood pressure, we at Center for Women’s Health can provide the extra support you need for the safety.
The care you receive during your pregnancy can minimize your chances of complications that can put your health and the health of your child at risk. Center for Women’s Health believes prevention and early intervention are the best ways to improve pregnancy outcomes.
Mothers who don’t get prenatal care have a higher chance of having a baby with a low birth weight, and their newborns are five times more likely to die shortly after birth than infants born to mothers who do receive prenatal care.
The prenatal care examinations with your physician at the Center for Women’s Health also help determine if your pregnancy is high risk by identifying the symptoms of health conditions before they become severe and impact your child’s health. The all-female staff at Center for Women’s Health works closely with high-risk pregnancy subspecialists to co-manage patients with the highest risk of complications.
The physicians at the Center for Women’s Health educate you about what to expect at every stage of your pregnancy and teach you how to stay as healthy as possible for the duration. The certified OB/GYN specialists at Center for Women’s Health provide care and comfort for pregnant women with concurrent health conditions, including gestational diabetes, hypertension and pre-eclampsia, and those carrying twins or experiencing preterm labor.
