Noth Florida Women's Care is honored to care for you during the exciting journey into motherhood! We offer you the benefits of a collaborative team of healthcare professionals.
Our office has a designated suite for our obstetrical patient prenatal care. Prenatal visits usually occur about every four weeks for the first six months, then every two to three weeks for the seventh and eighth months of pregnancy. During the last month, patients visit at least weekly. Care during each pregnancy is individualized. Please note: no medication is guaranteed to be safe during pregnancy, especially during the first 12 weeks. Please review our Over-the-Counter Medications In Pregnancy recommendations.
Our physicians are skilled in vaginal, cesarean and high-risk deliveries. We deliver at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, the only hospital in our area with advanced neonatal intensive care facilities. Due to the high risk nature of vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC), we do not participate in the care of such deliveries. Our physicians rotate on the TMH on-call schedule and are available for your obstetrical needs at all times. The physician who is on call at the time you go into labor will most likely be the one who delivers you.
After your delivery, our providers will make hospital rounds daily to insure of your health and wellbeing. If you have a baby boy and you request a circumcision, this will usually be performed prior to your hospital discharge by our physician on call at that time. Our office will see you again for your six-week postpartum visit. At that time, we can address contraceptive options, breastfeeding issues and any possible emotional issues (such as postpartum depression).
Seven of our physicians and two nurse practitioners currently provide obstetrical care. While our nurse practitioners may see you for a routine OB visit, only our physicians conduct deliveries. The physician who is on call at the time you go into labor will most likely be the one who delivers you.
The childbirth classes are offered through Childbirth Educators of Tallahassee and are highly recommended. These Certified Childbirth Educators are specially trained to impart valuable information about pregnancy, labor, delivery and breastfeeding.
