Having a Baby?

Congratulations!

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.

Helpful information

Nutrition & exercise

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise can enhance your feeling of well-being and lessen some of the discomforts of pregnancy such as backache and tiredness. In addition, your daily diet should provide proper nutrition to your growing baby and provide the necessary calories for your own needs and energy.

What to expect

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.

Postpartum care

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.

Pregnancy: There’s an app for that

Babyscripts is here!

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.

Benefits of Babyscripts:

  • Individualized weekly goals and reminders
  • Real time data sent to your physician
