Prenatal Care

Our team of board certified OB/GYNs and support staff provide medical care and case management to coordinate a patient’s entire pregnancy and after delivery care. This includes: pregnancy testing and counseling, medical care, ultrasounds, lab tests, referrals, postpartum visits and pediatric transition. We deliver babies at either the award-winning Scripps Mercy Hospital or Sharp Grossmont Hospital.

Case Management

Prenatal Case Managers help our patients by facilitating health care services through assessment, planning and coordination to meet the patient’s comprehensive needs.

Childbirth Health Education

Patients receive individual counseling to review physical changes during pregnancy and postpartum, common discomforts, fetal development, signs of labor, hospital registration process, family planning options and more.

Nutrition Counseling

Patients meet with a Nutritionist or Registered Dietitian to learn how to make healthy food choices and understand how these choices affect their developing baby. Nutritionists also discuss appropriate weight gain during pregnancy and ways to lose weight after the baby is born.

Social Work

Social Workers provide individualized assessment and support, as well as connect patients with community resources.

Breastfeeding Education and Support

Lactation Educators provide information about the benefits of breastfeeding, what to expect the first few weeks after delivery, how to produce enough milk, how to use and apply for a free breast pump and more. Lactation Educators are also available to provide support after the baby is born.
