FAQs about Obstetrics

Your obstetrical care is very important to us. We want to make sure you and your baby are healthy throughout your entire pregnancy. We have 7 physicians and 2 Certified Nurse Midwives who have delivered over 20,000 babies and have over 100 years of experience. We provide care for both low risk pregnancies and we work in consultation with high risk pregnancies. We strive to provide the very best obstetrical care to all of our patients in Northeast Kansas generation after generation.

Every obstetrical appointment is set up to monitor the well-being of you and your baby. At each visit you can expect to have your weight monitored, your urine and blood pressure checked as well as listening to your baby’s heart rate. Your visit may also include blood draws, diabetic testing, screening for group beta strep and/or genetic testing, if desired. Typically, appointments are set up every 4 weeks until you reach 28 weeks gestation, then they are every 2 weeks until 36 weeks gestation and finally every week until delivery. An ultrasound will be done at 20 weeks to check on the baby’s well being.

Thank you for entrusting us with your care, we look forward to being a part of this incredible journey.
