Please contact the office for more information about setting up an ultrasound as part of your next appointment.

Cesarean Section

Emergency Cesarean Section (C-section) births are done for reasons including fetal distress, labor failing to progress or placenta previa. This happens typically after a woman has been laboring and the baby has to be delivered abdominally using a general anesthetic.

A planned C-section can be done for a number of reasons, but is not typically done for the simple reason of convenience. Most commonly, C-sections are scheduled for breech presentations and/or if you had a C-section with a previous pregnancy. You will be given a spinal anesthesia through a small needle that allows you to be awake and alert during the surgical delivery of your baby. To receive the medication you will be asked to either sit up or to lie on your left side. As the anesthesia begins to work, your lower body will become numb and you will not feel any pain.


High–Risk Pregnancy

Being called “high-risk” may sound scary. But it’s really just a way for doctors to make sure that you get special attention during your pregnancy. A pregnancy is considered High-Risk when your baby has an increased chance of a health problem. Many things can put you at high risk. Your doctor will watch you closely during your pregnancy to find any problems early.
