Your pregnancy

Congratulations! You are having a baby!

Creating a new life is a wondrous experience; there’s nothing else in life quite like the remarkable journey that awaits you.  Pregnancy is an exciting time as you prepare to welcome your baby into your growing family and into your heart.

We’re here to provide all the support you and your baby need throughout your pregnancy. At the heart of this support, is the partnership between you and your doctor. This partnership extends to other doctors, nurses, and many health care professionals who work together to make your pregnancy happy and healthy.

Seeing your health care partners on a regular basis can give you great peace of mind that things are going well and, if there is a problem, it can be spotted – and treated – early.
