Caring for our Pregnancy and Obstetrics Patients Like Family in Middle Tennessee
Our obstetrical care often begins well before a woman becomes pregnant. Women who are considering having a baby can receive pre-conception counseling, especially if there are health concerns. We also help women who are having difficulty getting pregnant.
For the duration of pregnancy, we are here to listen, advise, reassure, comfort, coach and problem-solve. We meet with mothers-to-be regularly to check their health and their baby's growth. Outside of office visits, we are just a phone call away for any question or concern. We are committed to responding to calls quickly, because we understand that getting timely information can make all the difference in keeping pregnancy stress to a minimum.
