We are currently accepting new obstetric patients. Our practice includes both midwives and physicians, who work together to provide the best possible care.
When you call our office, all newly pregnant patients meet with a nurse to review your medical history and provide you with important information about having a healthy pregnancy. We perform an ultrasound on all our patients at approximately eight to 10 weeks to help establish your baby's due date and to check on the health of the pregnancy. The first visit involves a full exam and review of available prenatal testing with one of our midwives, followed by regular visits with the practitioner of your choice.
We do all of our deliveries at Women & Infants Hospital. We perform our surgeries at Women & Infants Hospital as well as at Rhode Island Hospital, where our patients are most often admitted to the new Women’s Medicine Inpatient Unit.
We offer gentle cesarean sections on request. The purpose of the gentle cesarean section is to make the environment as peaceful as possible for each patient and to allow bonding between mom and baby to begin immediately. We do this by providing a quiet room, free from noise and conversations, and filled with the music of mom's choice. We dim the lights and encourage the father or significant other to be in the room during the delivery. Most importantly, we encourage bonding right away through skin-to-skin contact and minimizing the time that mom and baby are separated after delivery.
We are happy to see newly pregnant women at one of our many locations.
