Seeing a family medicine and obstetrics doctor makes it easy for moms and their babies to get care from the same doctor, at the same place.
Moms see the same doctor throughout pregnancy and postpartum and for their ongoing care. Their babies can get care from the same doctor, all the way through childhood.
Our family medicine and obstetrics doctors accept a limited number of women with low-risk pregnancies. This helps them offer care that is tailored to you and your family.
While in labor, you will often be their only patient in the hospital. This helps them focus on you and your delivery.
Women with low-risk pregnancies can see select family medicine doctors for obstetric care in Lake Stevens and Marysville.
Having a healthy pregnancy
There are several advantages to having one doctor who can care for all of your needs. You can see the same doctor for everything from prenatal care to depression, and from a cold to other issues.
Over the years, you and your doctor can build a close relationship. When you're pregnant, you and your doctor will talk about your birth plan and issues such as:
- Do you want family involved in the delivery?
- How can a doula help during labor and delivery?
- Should you use drugs to numb part of your body during labor and delivery?
After delivery, the same doctor can help you with family planning options. These may include birth control implants, IUDs, birth control pills and vasectomies (surgery that prevents a man from being able to get a woman pregnant).
Our family medicine and obstetrics team can also see you for your postpartum and ongoing care. Your same doctor can see your newborn and do circumcisions. He or she can even see your other family members.OR
Many future parents wonder if their children will get illnesses from them. We offer genetic screening to learn more about inherited diseases before you get pregnant. Screening can also be done at your first prenatal visit and later in your pregnancy.OR
We can find out if you are pregnant by testing your urine or blood. These tests look for a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). It’s produced by the placenta. It’s found in your blood or urine when you are pregnant.OR
We are pleased to be a part of this exciting time in your life. We look forward to offering you high-quality, compassionate care.
Visits during pregnancy, or prenatal visits, are important. They help us make sure you’re healthy and everything is fine during your pregnancy.
During these visits we’ll check your weight and blood pressure. We’ll also check your baby’s growth and listen to your baby’s heartbeat.
If needed, we’ll order lab tests. Toward the end of your pregnancy, we’ll also check your cervix (lower part of uterus or womb). As labor nears, the cervix may start to thin or stretch (efface) and open (dilate).
You’ll have routine obstetric visits every four weeks until you reach 28 weeks. After that we’ll see you every two weeks until you reach 36 weeks.
At 36 weeks, we'll see you once a week until you deliver. Be sure to write down any questions that come up between visits. Bring them with you to your next visit.OR
We know where you deliver your baby matters. Our teams deliver babies at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.OR
