Obstetrics

Pre-pregnancy counselling

We offer counseling services and laboratory workup to those thinking about starting a family. We discuss topics such as ovulation, the ideal time to conceive, immunizations, and vaccinations that should be done prior to conception, and medical conditions that might affect conception.  We encourage a healthy lifestyle that involves exercising, eating healthy, starting prenatal vitamins, and decreasing alcohol and or tobacco; all in order to give you the best possible chances of conception.

Antepartum/prenatal care

This is the care you receive during your pregnancy.  A full pregnancy is 10 months (40 weeks).  Most people are unaware of their pregnancy early on and are diagnosed usually between 6-12 weeks.

1st trimester is the time from confirmed intrauterine pregnancy to 14 weeks of gestation. During this time, we do ultrasounds and offer Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT). NIPT is usually a blood test that can detect chromosomal anomalies like Down syndrome, Edwards or Patau syndrome and can also reveal gender of the fetus very early. NIPT is usually done from 10 weeks of pregnancy. During this trimester, you see the doctor every 4 weeks

2nd trimester is the period from 14 to 28 completed weeks.  During this period, we do a detailed anatomy ultrasound around 20 weeks to look for fetal anomalies.  We also screen for diabetes and anemia in this time segment.

3rd trimester is the last third of pregnancy which is from 28 to 40 weeks. Here we see you more often and if necessary, do serial ultrasounds, to ensure that your baby is doing well.

Post term is after 42 weeks of pregnancy. The risk of still birth is exceedingly high and we do not encourage anyone to deliver after 42 weeks.

Labor and Delivery

This is the period from when you get to the hospital to when you deliver your baby.  Depending on the route of your delivery; either vaginal or via cesarean section, you can be well assured of safe, professional, and excellent care. Our motto for Labor and Delivery is “Safe Mother, Safe Baby.” All our deliveries are done at Broward Health Medical Center

Postpartum Period

This period is from the time of your delivery to up to 6 weeks after your delivery. We usually see you two times during this period to ensure that you and your baby are doing well.

High Risk pregnancies are pregnancies complicated by disease processes that place you and your baby at risk. Some examples of women considered high risk are those who are over the age of 35 when they deliver, those with multiple pregnancies, those who have preexisting diseases like Hypertension or diabetes, those who are diabetic because of the pregnancy, those who are pre-eclamptic and those who have had 3 or more cesarean sections. 

For women who are high risk, we manage your care in coordination with a high risk doctor known as a Perinatologist.
