What is an OB/GYN?
An OB/GYN is a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology. An obstetrician cares for women during their pregnancy and in the postpartum period. A gynecologist deals with all aspects of a woman’s reproductive health.
As a board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Patel offers the highest quality care during your pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period as well as for regular women’s health visits and issues that may arise regarding your pelvic organ health.
What is involved in obstetrics care?
At Patel & Patel, M.D., Inc., pregnancy care begins even before you conceive. Dr. Patel and a group of expert providers can help counsel you on how to prepare your body for motherhood. If you have trouble conceiving, Dr. Patel and his staff help with infertility evaluations and counseling.
Once you have conceived, prenatal care provides important screenings and monitors the health and well-being of both mom and baby. If you have any risk factors for complications, such as multiple babies or a pre-existing maternal health condition, these are managed so you can have the best pregnancy experience possible.
During prenatal care, you undergo blood tests, 3D and 4D ultrasounds, gestational diabetes testing, and any other tests, such as cystic fibrosis and neural tube defect screening. In-office lab and ultrasound services make these screenings easy to schedule and interpret. Noninvasive genetic testing is also available.
Care is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Dr. Patel works with Thomas Memorial Hospital, where he welcomes your baby into the world with the help of a compassionate and supportive staff. You receive family-centered care and benefit from a special care nursery that has a neonatologist on staff to address any newborn concerns.
The birthing center offers childbirth, breastfeeding, and baby classes as well as support from a lactation consultant. You even get a free car seat with which to take your precious baby home safely after you’re discharged from the hospital.
