Prenatal Care

You can choose between a traditional care model, where you will have individual visits with each provider or a focused prenatal care model, where an uncomplicated pregnancy allows for fewer prenatal care visits to better accommodate your busy schedule.

  • Standard Prenatal Care - Mothers have one-on-one visits with their primary physician for monthly visits during their first two trimesters and then meet the other two physicians on their birth team during the final weeks.
  • Focused Care - Evidence tells us that appointments every six weeks instead of four weeks for the first two trimesters is safe.  The option is available to you.
  • Ongoing Education - Lamaze classes, pregnancy and parenting classes, including breastfeeding preparation visits, are offered to all parents.  We also offer a lending library.
