Prenatal Care & Delivery

Pregnancy is an exciting time for couples and a time for major changes. From the early weeks and beyond, your baby-to-be will transform your body and daily activities. If you are thinking of starting a family, see your provider for a preconception visit. Being informed is the best way to approach pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum period. If you think you may be pregnant, schedule an office visit to confirm your pregnancy. Regular prenatal visits, following a healthy lifestyle and staying informed when making decisions will give your baby-to-be the best chance for a healthy beginning.

Pregnancy and birth are natural, but problems can occur. All pregnant women should receive prenatal care as early as possible. Expectant mothers will receive regular health check-ups, ultrasounds, routine cultures, blood and urine tests, childbirth class information and more.

Women’s Health Associates delivers at Northside Hospital Women’s Pavilion in Sandy Springs, Georgia. They offer extensive childbirth education classes and hospital tours.
