Health care for women

Our team provides the care women need before, during and after pregnancy. We also cater to all your gynecological health care needs, including birth control care and menopause management.

Prenatal care

We offer preconception and nutrition counseling as well as disease screening to set you on the path to a healthy pregnancy. Free pregnancy tests are available seven days a week and no appointment is necessary.

During pregnancy, we offer routine ultrasound examinations and prenatal classes on site. We provide genetic counseling and testing, including amniocentesis to test for conditions such as Down syndrome and spina bifida. Our Maternal-Fetal Specialists provide advanced care if your pregnancy is considered high risk due to conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or preterm labor.

We use the CenteringPregnancy group model of prenatal care. Through shared medical appointments, we bring women together to share their experiences, learn from each other and form a support network.

Our services go beyond routine pregnancy care. We also offer assistance with social support services and can connect you with resources to help you with housing, food and financial assistance. Our behavioral health counselors can help you deal with any emotional or psychological challenges you are having, including anxiety and postpartum depression.
