COVID-19: Your safety is our top concern.
We know that you want to feel confident that you are entering a safe environment when you come to Lifespan Physician Group offices for care. That’s why we have made some changes in response to COVID-19.
The health care needs of reproductive-age women are unique.
If you are planning a pregnancy in your future, we know that your health will significantly impact the outcome of your pregnancy. In recent years, we have also learned that health complications that arise in pregnancy can impact your health later in life. That’s why we take a “whole picture” approach in caring for women in and around pregnancy. Our team of specialists offers comprehensive care for reproductive age women who are planning a pregnancy, pregnant, postpartum, or in between pregnancies.
We provide consultations for patients referred by obstetricians, midwives, gynecologists, internists and specialists or the patient may call us directly. Our specialists are experts in managing chronic maternal medical conditions, pregnancy-related complications and offer preconception counseling.
To learn more or schedule an appointment, please call us at 401-793-7410 or fax 401-793-7988.
If you have a medical issue or experienced complications in a prior pregnancy, we’ve got it covered. We offer compassionate care for women before, during, and after pregnancy; and we are also happy to provide care between pregnancies.

The Women’s Medicine Collaborative offers a diabetes and endocrine disorders in pregnancy program that focuses on the specialized care that women who have pregestational or gestational diabetes or other endocrine disorders need for a healthy pregnancy.
We also offer a postpartum program designed for women who experience a complication in pregnancy. Our goal is to prevent chronic disease by identifying risk factors that present in pregnancy and provide counseling and treatment aimed at reducing the risk of chronic disease later in life.
We provide consultations for patients referred by obstetricians, midwives, gynecologists, internists and specialists or the patient may call us directly. We see patients for preconception counseling, a one-time pregnancy consultation, or will follow a patient throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. We are in contact with the patient's obstetrician and/or other referring provider throughout care to assure collaboration and a smooth transition after delivery.
Our physicians see patients at our West River Street office and patients who are admitted to Women & Infants Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital. Our staff is available 24 hours a day for emergency room and inpatient consultations.
Maternal Fetal Medicine
The maternal fetal medicine program at the Women’s Medicine Collaborative provides specialized care for women with high-risk pregnancies. Our team of physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, behavioral medicine specialists, registered dietitians, ultrasound technologists and more, provide high-risk pregnancy care for women whose pregnancies require more frequent monitoring, medications, or treatments.
Our ultrasound units are equipped with state-of-the-art, 3D and 4D technology. Like regular ultrasounds, 3D and 4D ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of your baby in the womb. 3D ultrasounds create a three-dimensional image of your baby, allowing a more realistic imaging of your baby’s position and features. 4D ultrasounds create a live video effect, so you can watch your baby in motion, such as smiling or yawning.
