Getting Ready For Baby
The Obstetrics team at Mercy Medical Group are are committed to your and your baby's health.
When you’re pregnant, you experience a whole gamut of emotions: excitement, fear, anxiety, the list goes on and on. It’s often a very confusing and stressful time for a woman. That’s why you need an ally on your side to help you through it. You need an experienced, professional OB/GYN. In Sacramento, Folsom, Carmichael, Natomas, El Dorado Hills and Elk Grove, Mercy Medical Group offers qualified obstetricians to provide you and your child with the best care possible before, during and after pregnancy.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, it is recommended you see an OB/GYN multiple times throughout your pregnancy to ensure both your help and the unborn child’s. Your initial visit should be at 6 to 8 weeks in. Then, you should visit your OB/GYN once a month until you’re 28 to 30 weeks in; at that point, you should have checkups every 2 weeks until delivery.
Our experienced Sacramento, Carmichael, Natomas, Folsom and Elk Grove OB/GYN doctors can provide you with sonograms, ultrasounds, regular checkups, prenatal advice, preparations for labor, and much more. Then, when it’s time for delivery, your OB/GYN can be there by your side to help you through it. After delivery, we offer postnatal care for both you and your new child.
When you’re pregnant, quality prenatal care is of the utmost importance. Prenatal care ensures both you and your baby are being taken care of and staying healthy during this important time. Here at Mercy Medical Group, we offer unparalleled Sacramento prenatal care services.
While pregnancy is difficult and trying at times, the part most women fear the most is the actual act of giving birth. Many women are unsure of how to prepare for labor and the pain of childbirth is overwhelming to them. Let Mercy Medical Group’s OB/GYNs alleviate the stress and help with your birth process.
As part of Mercy Medical Group’s comprehensive obstetrics care, we offer postnatal care services for both women and their new babies. Postnatal care is recommended for the first six to eight weeks following birth to look out for any health issues and ensure the baby’s overall health.
