You’re pregnant! At Prisma Health, we know that pregnancy and birth are key events in the life of any family. That’s why our providers and staff consider it a privilege to be part of your pregnancy and birth experience. That’s also why we strive to provide you with high-quality care in a comfortable, nurturing environment.
Pregnant women have many choices and options. From how to prepare for childbirth to choosing your OB/GYN. Choosing an OB/GYN is one of the most important decisions you will make as an expectant mother. You need a medical home where you feel welcome, and where you are comfortable asking questions and expressing your concerns.
Starting the decision-making process early will help ensure the best possible outcome for you and your baby. Register in advance for your delivery, prepare for your birth with childbirth classes and start planning for your care after you return home now to make your pregnancy experience easier.
We are pleased to offer primary care OB/GYN practices across the Upstate. All of our physicians and advanced practice providers are board certified, meaning that they have the most advanced training and certification in obstetric and gynecological care. Our priority is to provide the most highly advanced medical support while building a relationship where you feel comfortable establishing a medical home after delivery.

Prisma Health is here to support and educate you throughout your pregnancy and afterwards. As your body changes throughout your pregnancy experience, each trimester brings new milestones in your baby’s development, changes to your body, and tasks and preparations to undertake.
The first trimester lasts from week 1 through the end of week 13. During this time, your body will undergo extraordinary changes in a relatively short amount of time.
The second trimester lasts from weeks 14 through the end of week 27. This time will bring, most likely, welcome relief from early pregnancy symptoms for you.
The third trimester lasts from week 28 through 40 and brings with it some added discomfort. Hang in there – you are almost to the finish line!
Bringing home a new baby is a special time. It takes patience to take care of your baby and your postpartum body. There’s no right way, only what works best for you and your baby.
Prisma Health is implementing the Babyscripts, a free mobile education platform that provides you with the best prenatal care from your OB/GYN provider to you, no matter where you are. This mobile app allows you to track your progress throughout your pregnancy and know if your stats are considered normal. Plus, it has educational information to give you the confidence that your pregnancy is on track.
In addition, it provides to-do lists specific to your OB/GYN practice that guides mom through each trimester with customized tasks related to nutrition, exercise and other behaviors appropriate to her pregnancy.
