We also emphasize the importance of folic acid and provide tips on safe fish consumption. Trust in our expertise for your nutritional guidance during pregnancy.

Prenatal TestingWhat it is

We prioritize the well-being of both mother and baby through our comprehensive prenatal testing services. Our dedicated team conducts a series of thorough screenings and diagnostic tests — from first-trimester screenings to genetic carrier screenings — all designed to provide valuable insights into your baby's development and health.

Prenatal testing is a crucial aspect of pregnancy care, as it helps detect potential health concerns early, enabling prompt action and treatment when necessary. Our expert team adheres to guidelines set by revered institutions such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), ensuring our services are of the highest standard.

Postpartum CareWhat it is

Postpartum care is a structured, compassionate approach to support new mothers' health and well-being following childbirth. This period, often referred to as the 'fourth trimester', is crucial for a mother's recovery and adjustment to her new role.

The process begins immediately after delivery, where we monitor the mother for any immediate post-delivery complications such as excessive bleeding or high blood pressure. This acute care often lasts for the first few hours post-birth.

In the days and weeks following, postpartum care shifts to focus on wound healing (if a cesarean section was performed or if there were perineal tears), managing hormonal changes, aiding breastfeeding, and checking for signs of postpartum depression or anxiety. Regular check-ups, either in-person or through telemedicine, are scheduled to track the mother's progress and address any emerging concerns.

Postpartum Depression ScreeningWhat it is

Postpartum care is a comprehensive approach that goes beyond just physical well-being. It thoughtfully integrates elements of mental and emotional health, recognizing the profound changes that new mothers undergo. With our commitment to providing expert care, we provide screenings for postpartum depression, providing an additional layer of support during this transformative period. Our goal is to ensure you feel seen, heard, and understood as we navigate this journey together.

Remember, it's normal to experience a range of emotions after childbirth, but if feelings of sadness or anxiety become overwhelming, it's important to seek help. You're not alone, and there are resources available to assist you.
