Your Doylestown Women’s Health Center Doctors Explain

couple-talking-to-doctorDid you know that a healthy pregnancy begins before the pregnancy test is positive? The best time to start planning for your pregnancy is before you conceive!

Pregnancy and childbirth are a beautiful natural phenomena unique to each person. If you are planning to have a baby, you should consider a pre-conception counseling check-up with one of our doctors at Doylestown Women’s Health Center.

The purpose of pre-conception counseling is to identify factors in your medical history or lifestyle that could adversely affect your pregnancy. By addressing these issues in advance, you have the opportunity to take the necessary steps to increase the chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby. During your check-up, your doctor will review your medical and family histories, including medication usage and safety, diet and fitness habits. We also want to address your specific concerns and answer your questions. In this way, we can work together with the prospective mom-to-be and make appropriate recommendations. In many instances, this planning results in changes that can make a huge difference.

At Doylestown Women’s Health Center, we believe in a collaborative, patient-focused approach to pregnancy and childbirth. Our highly trained, Board Certified physicians are personally familiar with each and every one of our Obstetrics patients. You will be seen by our physicians who work together with each other, and you, to oversee, guide, monitor your progress and answer your questions beginning with the pre-conception counseling check-up, all the way through OB visits and your labor, delivery and post-partum care.

At Doylestown Women’s Health Center, we draw on years of extensive experience in the case and management of Low and complicated High Risk pregnancies.

Our patient-focused approach means that while you make all the important decisions regarding the birth of your child, our pledge to you is that WE WILL BE THERE FOR YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!
