Obstetric care at Ogden Clinic in Utah is for women before, during, and after childbirth. Our laborists and obstetric specialists work with each patient closely to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery. From the first appointment to follow-up care, we are here to support you and your family. Obstetric care consists of three major components: prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care.
Prenatal care is beneficial for both mom and baby. Moms who undergo prenatal care tend to give birth to healthier babies, better understand nutrition during the pregnancy and while breastfeeding, and have access to ultrasound tests during prenatal visits, which can diagnose fetal conditions in early stages. Regular prenatal appointments allow the gynecologist to monitor the baby’s development, detecting and treating potential problems. At Ogden Clinic we use leading technology and medical practices to monitor these changes, including ultrasound imaging and a comprehensive approach to care.
Obstetric care at Ogden Clinic continues through the delivery process, whether it is normal childbirth, a high-risk pregnancy, or an emergency case. Some women are at a higher risk during delivery, including those with a preexisting health condition like diabetes, those who used drugs or drank alcohol during the pregnancy, or those over the age of 35. By working with a member of our obstetric care team from the beginning, women can prevent and prepare for any potential delivery complications.
Postpartum care is essential to a family’s health and wellbeing after delivery. The postpartum period is often associated with mood swings and depression after childbirth. These emotional changes are addressed in addition to mother and child’s overall physical health. Treatment includes caring for C-section wounds or vaginal tears, proper nutrition, and breastfeeding and lactation counseling.
