Prenatal Care

My pregnancy test is positive. How soon should I see a doctor for prenatal care?

You should call now to schedule an appointment that will take place between the eighth and tenth weeks of your pregnancy. You may be advised to begin taking prenatal vitamins if you are not already doing so.

If you feel you need to be seen sooner, ask to speak with one of our nurses so she can make an appointment for you.

Who should I call?

One of the most important decisions an expectant mother will make is the choice of obstetrician.

When weighing your options, consider what makes OB/GYN Health Associates exceptional.

  • Our focus is on you…your preferences…your convenience…your health.
  • Our experienced physicians have privileges at both Advocate Christ Medical Center and Palos Community Hospital. They generally are able to deliver your baby at the hospital of your choice.
  • You select the doctor who will be your “primary OB” and you will continue to see that physician throughout your pregnancy.
  • Unlike many private practices, we offer onsite routine OB and pelvic ultrasounds.
  • We offer evening appointments.

As you explore our website, you will discover that OB/GYN Health Associates provides far more than obstetrical services. We offer a continuum of quality gynecological care for women of all ages.
