Obstetrics

At Southdale Ob/Gyn we provide exceptional care for women during their pregnancies.  We treat each patient as an individual, tailoring our care to her specific needs, and striving to make pregnancy an enjoyable experience.  We are well-equipped to care for women with both uncomplicated and high-risk pregnancies.  We work closely with our maternal-fetal medicine colleagues in managing high-risk pregnancies, as needed.

Prenatal care begins in our clinic around 8 weeks of pregnancy.  At this first prenatal visit, we spend time with each patient reviewing her history, answering questions and discussing expectations for the prenatal course.  At first, follow-up visits are monthly until the third trimester at which time they become more frequent.  We pay close attention to expectant mother’s individual needs, and will schedule extra visits if problems or complications arise.

Part of our comprehensive care includes ultrasound services available in our office.  Our sonographers are certified to perform nuchal translucency measurements for first trimester screening tests and to perform routine anatomy ultrasounds.  All of the ultrasounds done in our clinic are read by a physician from our group, specially trained and certified to read ultrasounds.

Our physicians perform deliveries at both Fairview Southdale Hospital and Fairview Ridges Hospital.
