Obstetrics

The “OB” in OB/GYN is about far more than delivering babies – it encompasses all of the counseling, support, diagnostics and treatment from the initial idea of becoming pregnant through prenatal care and delivery to postpartum care.

And Providers at Lifeline Medical Associates offer the highest quality prenatal and postpartum care, affording patients the greatest opportunity for a safe and successful pregnancy.

This all begins well in advance of becoming pregnant – when just beginning to plan for pregnancy. Why should you see an obstetrician before becoming pregnant?

A preconception checkup can help you:

  • Ensure that you are taking prenatal vitamins and leading a healthy lifestyle, benefitting you and your baby throughout the pregnancy.
  • Understand any personal risk factors you may have, including reviewing your medical history and your family history, especially related to potential genetic issues.
  • Check that all immunizations are up to date and all prescribed and over-the-counter medications, as well as any supplements, are safe in pregnancy.
  • Develop a plan to keep mother and baby healthy before, during and after your pregnancy.

As you progress through your pregnancy, Providers at Lifeline Medical Associates will:

  • Monitor your health and your baby’s health.
  • Help you identify, prevent and treat the symptoms often associated with pregnancy, including morning sickness, leg cramps and heartburn.
  • Advise you on how to stay healthy with appropriate diet and safe, adequate exercise.
