PREGNANCY CARE IN SOUTH DENVER

PREGNANCY CARE AT WHCA

Our eight female OB/GYN providers perform all of the deliveries for the patients in our practice. We pride ourselves on patient communication and education throughout the pregnancy, and address issues such as:

  • Preconception counseling

    • A visit focused on optimizing natural fertility and preparing for pregnancy

  • Genetic screening

    • Discussion of the options for genetic screening both prior to pregnancy and during pregnancy care

  • Comprehensive obstetric ultrasound

    • Our WHCA ultrasound providers are experts in first, second, and third trimester pregnancy ultrasounds, including 3D ultrasound images

  • Neural tube defect screening
