Caring for your developing baby

Your prenatal visits will include education to prepare you for the care of your developing baby, as well as for the labor and delivery process. As obstetricians, we perform many specialized tests during this time to carefully monitor the condition and progress of your pregnancy. With on-site ultrasound and fetal monitoring, you won’t have to go to another facility for routine monitoring.

Labor and Delivery

You’ll never forget the day your child is born. As parents ourselves, we know the joy and apprehension that comes with bringing a new life into the world. We will work with you and your family to develop a birthing plan to match your wishes. We will give you and your baby the best care possible.

After the birth

Congratulations! This is an exciting time, but also a time of change and transition for all members of your family. We are here to help you.

After your baby is born, we will schedule a post-partum visit at about 6 weeks after delivery. During this visit, we will monitor your recovery from labor and delivery to be sure you are physically healthy, and discuss your family planning options. This visit also provides us an opportunity to talk about the emotional changes that take place, and help you and your family adjust to your new family dynamic. It is important for you to know that we are only a phone call away, and we encourage you to call us with any questions or concerns you may have.

Cord Blood Banking

The decision to preserve the stem cells found in the umbilical cord blood at the time of delivery is important and needs to be made in advance. The companies that store the stem cells have some of the best resources for helping you make the right decisions: whether or not to collect and store cord blood, as well as which company to use.

Chula Vista Ob Gyn is unbiased in recommending an organization to provide cord blood storage. We leave the choice to you.

Here are links to some of the many companies available to you for this purpose

Low and High Risk Pregnancy Counseling

The majority of pregnancies are considered low risk. This means that there are no known factors that place the mother or the baby at increased risk of complications.

Certain risk factors may require additional assesments and interventions. Having a high risk pregnancy does not mean that you or your baby will have problems. It means that your doctor needs to watch you closely in order to keep you healthy and prevent your pregnancy from having complications.

Approximately two-thirds of boys in the United States are circumcised, the numbers varying with certain religious and ethnic groups.  The decision is a personal one.
