The health care team at South Miami OB/GYN Associates makes it their mission to get to know their patients and help you feel as confident as possible during and after your pregnancy. They understand that your life goes through some staggering changes during pregnancy. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with your doctor one-on-one to discuss your questions, needs, and preferences for your pregnancy and delivery. The providers have privileges at Miami Medical Center, South Miami Hospital, and the Medical Arts Surgery Center at South Miami.
You can also expect a thorough examination and lab work to check on routine health matters that are especially important during pregnancy, such as your blood sugar level. There is a dedicated obstetrics coordinator on staff who offers personalized counseling and helps facilitate services throughout your pregnancy.
Schedules may vary according to your individual needs and circumstances, but the doctor generally sees you once a month throughout the first trimester and then with increasing frequency as your due date approaches. You’ll likely be a weekly visitor to the office during the final weeks of your pregnancy.
It’s important that you keep every appointment so that your doctor can closely track your blood pressure, lab studies, and other factors important to your physical and emotional wellbeing. South Miami OB/GYN Associates also provides ultrasounds, including high-definition 3D studies that are necessary for checking on the growth pattern of your baby.
The dedicated team at South Miami OB/GYN Associates cares strongly about the physical health of you and your baby, as well as your peace of mind. There are numerous informative articles available on the website that cover everything from nutrition and exercise during pregnancy to how to prepare for twins. They also provide childbirth classes focused on education and support with the intent of relieving your pregnancy worries by learning what to expect during pregnancy and beyond.
