Family Medicine Maternity Care
The doctors at Dignity Health Medical Group – Northridge Family Medicine are happy to care for you during your pregnancy, and we look forward to sharing this special time with you.
Comprehensive Maternity Care
Our maternity care physicians are dedicated to providing comprehensive maternal care, including labor and delivery services for vaginal deliveries, cesarean sections, and VBACs. During your pregnancy, you will be seen regularly by one of our resident physicians in conjunction with Board Certified Family Physicians. We recognize and appreciate what a special experience this is for you and will do our best to ensure that the doctors that care for you during your pregnancy are present during the delivery of your new baby.
Your first OB visit at our center will last approximately 30-45 minutes. During this visit, the doctor will get to know you as a person, address your questions, review your medical history, evaluate you for any potential health risks, perform a complete physical exam, and discuss what you might expect over the next nine months.
After your first visit, you will be scheduled to see the doctor regularly. At each visit you will have the opportunity to ask questions and share any concerns you have regarding your pregnancy. Your doctor will take the time to answer your questions and provide you with more information about what to expect. Your doctor will also help you develop a delivery plan that is tailored specifically for you to ensure that your delivery experience is positive.
We understand that having a baby is a family experience and we encourage you to bring your families/friends with you to your appointments.
