Keeping you and your baby healthy during pregnancy
During pregnancy, your baby, your body and your life are changing. Taking care of yourself is the best thing you can do for the two of you. HealthONE and the March of Dimes are partnering to educate women on how to give their babies the healthiest start in life through proper prenatal care and lifestyle choices.
Talk to your doctor about these key points and how they fit into your pregnancy:
- Eating healthy
- Protecting yourself and your baby
- Receiving regular prenatal care and tests
- Waiting until 39 weeks to induce a healthy pregnancy
Pregnancy conditions we treat
Our prenatal medicine specialists care for women experiencing routine and high-risk pregnancies. Some of the pregnancy conditions we treat include:
- Amniotic fluid abnormalities
- Anemia in pregnancy
- Chorioamnionitis (inflammation of fetal membranes due to a bacterial infection)
- Congenital rubella syndrome (occurs in the baby when the mother has rubella virus)
- Ectopic pregnancy (occurs when a fertilized egg begins to grow outside the uterus)
- Galactorrhea (spontaneous flow of milk from the breast, unrelated to childbirth or nursing)
- Gestational diabetes
- Hyperemesis gravidarum (severe morning sickness)
- Incompetent cervix (weak cervical tissue contributes to premature birth)
- Mastitis (breast tissue infection)
- Multiple pregnancies
- Placental conditions
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) (hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts)
- Pregnancy after premature birth
- Preeclampsia (pregnancy complication caused by high blood pressure)
- Rh incompatibility and isoimmunization (blood group incompatibility between mom and baby)
- Toxoplasmosis (disease that results from the toxoplasma infection)
- Thyroid disorders during pregnancy
- Vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC)
If your pregnancy is considered high risk, we have maternal-fetal health specialists who can collaborate with your physician for your care. Additionally, our maternal-fetal care program offers a variety of services to ensure the safety and health of high-risk moms and high-risk babies during pregnancy.
Some of our hospitals offer midwifery services for pregnancy and childbirth care. A certified nurse midwife (CNM) is trained in nursing and midwifery and can care for you before, during and after your pregnancy, consulting with an OB/GYN when necessary. A CNM could be a good provider for you if you are interested in a low-intervention pregnancy and childbirth experience.
Maternity and parenting classes
At HealthONE, we want to help you feel as prepared as possible for your baby's arrival. As part of that, our hospitals offer a variety of maternity and parenting classes to help you prepare for labor, delivery, newborn care and beyond.
Knowing where to go, what to bring and what to expect during your stay can help you feel more prepared when it is time to come to the hospital. This is why HealthONE hospitals offer complimentary childbirth tours. During these tours, you can get acquainted with the hospital and ask any questions you may have about labor and delivery as well as hospital and childbirth amenities.
Weekly pregnancy and childbirth newsletter
Expectant moms have a lot of questions. That is why we offer a free weekly newsletter for expectant and new parents. The newsletter includes helpful articles, links to sign up for classes, instructions for labor and delivery and much more.
