Our Prenatal Services

Traditional Obstetrics Care

We offer a full range of general obstetrics care. Choose one of our OB/GYNs, or see a family medicine physician who can care for your entire family.

Midwife Services

Nurse-midwives provide personal, one-on-one attention to guide you through the birth experience. They deliver babies in our low-intervention Birth Center rooms or in a traditional Labor & Delivery environment.

Prenatal Tests and Screenings

Our maternal-fetal care and genetics specialists perform ultrasound screenings using the latest imaging technology. We also provide prenatal and genetic counseling, amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling (CVS), and fetal growth assessments (when appropriate).

Genetic Counseling Services

Our board-certified medical geneticists and genetic counselors are available to help you make important decisions about your current and future pregnancies.

Specialized Care for High-Risk Pregnancies and Multiples

If your pregnancy needs specialized care, our team is ready to assist. We are experts in a wide range of complex maternal-fetal conditions, and will work with you to achieve a healthy pregnancy. 

Weight and Wellness Care

If you have a BMI of 35 or higher, or have had bariatric surgery, you'll need special care during pregnancy. Working with a team who understands these challenges — and can provide customized care and support — leads to healthier outcomes for both you and your baby.
