Learn More About:
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.
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.
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.

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.
