Fertility Assessment

Fertility assessments can be a key component of the family planning process. These assessments can check for a variety of indicators of fertility or infertility, like thyroid function, ovarian reserve, and progesterone levels. If you have any concerns about your fertility, your women’s healthcare provider is here to help.

High-Risk Pregnancy

If you’re 35 or older or have existing health conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, or obesity, then your pregnancy may be considered high risk. High-risk pregnancies require careful monitoring by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist to ensure that mom and baby remain healthy from conception to birth. We can connect you with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist here within our practice.

Midwifery

Midwifery consists of Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) and Certified Midwives (CMs) who have completed an accredited midwifery program. They can provide gynecologic and obstetric care services. We offer midwifery services as part of our commitment to respect cultural values and various personal preferences.

Lactation Support

It’s relatively common for new moms, or even experienced moms, to require lactation support following pregnancy. Your provider can help you connect with a lactation counselor or consultant who specializes in supporting women with breastfeeding.

Ultrasounds

A sonogram, or ultrasound, is a way of creating images of internal organs such as the breast, ovary, uterus, and fetus by using safe, high-frequency sound waves.  It is one of the diagnostic tools used by our providers. Obstetric ultrasounds are useful in helping us to detect potential problems, and to monitor your baby’s health throughout your pregnancy. Our ultrasound suites feature the latest technology, and we use our state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging for many reasons during your pregnancy. Our ultrasound department is an American Institute for Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) accredited facility. This means our practice has met accepted national standards and has shown consistent excellence in patient care when providing diagnostic ultrasounds. To become accredited, our staff has undergone rigorous and detailed testing and fulfilled the necessary requirements to become certified. State and Federal laws do not require accreditation; however, our practice is giving you piece of mind that we are qualified to perform your ultrasound examination.
