Family Planning and Pre-Pregnancy Services

Family planning and pre-pregnancy visits are essential parts of reproductive healthcare. We provide individuals and couples with useful information, resources, and guidance to make educated family planning decisions. Comprehensive medical exams, consultations, and patient resources are provided to those considering parenthood. This ensures they are in good health before conceiving, reducing potential hazards during pregnancy and childbirth. Reproductive medicine co-management is a collaborative strategy in which medical professionals such as reproductive endocrinologists, obstetricians, and specialists work together to create tailored treatment procedures for patients struggling with fertility issues and other reproductive health problems. We utilize this method to give complete treatment and support to individuals and couples pursuing their dreams of building a family. Treatment methods can be tailored, such as hormonal medications, surgical interventions, or assisted reproductive techniques such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF is an advanced assisted reproductive technology that helps individuals or couples overcome fertility challenges. With IVF, we remove eggs from the ovaries, fertilizing them with sperm in a controlled laboratory environment, and then implanting the embryos into the uterus. IVF has opened doors for many individuals and couples, providing hope to many who have struggled to conceive naturally. Talk to our team about our family planning and pre-pregnancy services.

Pregnancy Counseling, Prenatal Care, and Pregnancy Visits

Pregnancy counseling is an important part of reproductive healthcare because it provides people and couples with the guidance and information they need to improve their health and pregnancy preparation. To ensure a safe pregnancy, it involves discussions about lifestyle choices, family medical history, and any pre-existing challenges. When it comes to birthing options, expecting parents should discuss their options and preferences with the healthcare providers at Tennessee Valley OBGYN to determine the best course of action for their health and the health of their baby. Prenatal care and testing are critical components of a healthy pregnancy, containing regular check-ups, screenings, and diagnostic tests to monitor the mother’s and baby’s well-being. Perinatal care provides comprehensive treatment and advice during this period, beginning three months before pregnancy and lasting up to one year after birth. Fetal monitoring allows obstetricians to track the baby’s health and growth during pregnancy so that any potential problems are handled as soon as possible. Preterm birth and low birth weight are regularly monitored and controlled to increase the probability of a healthy outcome for both mother and baby. We provide these services and monitor pregnancies closely to ensure our patient’s health and comfort during this exciting time.

Pregnancy Care Center for Delivery and Postpartum Care

Obstetrical anesthesia is used for comfort and safety during childbirth. It involves pain medications such as epidurals or spinal anesthesia, which allow mothers to remain awake and attentive during delivery. We are also a doctor for high risk pregnancy. It’s important to monitor any risks closely, so we can maintain the health of the mom and baby. A few high-risk conditions include blood disorders, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. As your labor and delivery care team, we provide full support throughout the childbirth process, such as vital sign monitoring, baby’s health checkups, and pain management to ensure a safe delivery experience.

Following the birth, our postpartum care focuses on the recovery of the mom, including nursing guidance, physical healing, and emotional support. Postpartum depression, a common but dangerous mental illness, requires quick evaluation and treatment. We continue monitoring both mom and baby closely for any postpartum changes. Conditions like postpartum hemorrhage and other dangerous conditions demand immediate medical attention. Another operation that may follow the birth of the newborn is the procedure of male infant circumcision. It is a surgical operation in which the foreskin of the penis is removed shortly after birth. It is frequently conducted for cultural, religious, or medical reasons. The decision should be determined together with doctors and nurses after a thorough assessment of the potential benefits and risks. Our patients have our full attention during the delivery process and postpartum operations, as we work tirelessly to make sure mom and baby are safe and healthy.
