Obstetrics

Begin your motherhood journey with Premier OB Care.

At Premier Women’s Care of Southwest Florida, our obstetricians work together with our nurses and certified nurse midwives to provide you optimal prenatal, labor, delivery, and postpartum care.

We manage your health and that of your baby throughout pregnancy and birth and assist you as you recuperate from delivery. In addition to caring for you through labor and the delivery of your baby, we host childbirth classes and offer breastfeeding support to help prepare you for motherhood.

If you prefer a certified nurse midwife, Premier Women’s Care of Southwest Florida has Cape Coral’s only midwifery practice.

Our obstetricians are expert at managing high-risk pregnancies and providing the birth experience best for you, whether that is a vaginal birth, gentle C-section, or vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC).

When And Why Women Need Obstetrical Care

If you’re planning on getting pregnant soon, obstetrical care can help you begin a process of getting your body ready. Whether you need to achieve a healthy weight, quit smoking, start prenatal vitamins, or begin an exercise regimen, the team at Premier Women’s Care of Southwest Florida can help guide you.

If you’re already pregnant, obstetrics includes prenatal care, which helps keep you and your baby healthy throughout pregnancy and delivery. Women who receive prenatal care are more likely to have a safe and successful labor and delivery.

Obstetrical care can also help you create a birth plan, support a high-risk pregnancy, and ensure delivery goes smoothly. If you end up needing a Cesarean section, the doctors are skilled and will make the procedure as gentle as possible.

What Is Involved In Prenatal Care

Prenatal care keeps tabs on your health and the baby’s health and development throughout pregnancy. You will come in for regular visits at which you will have your blood pressure and weight measured. The growth of your baby is also checked periodically. Prenatal care includes ultrasounds of the fetus, blood tests for you, and management of any underlying conditions you have or develop, such as high blood pressure or gestational diabetes.

What Defines a High-Risk Pregnancy

A high-risk pregnancy is any pregnancy that poses a greater risk to mother or baby than usual. An advanced maternal age (usually older than 35), preexisting conditions – such as diabetes or lupus – or issues that arise with your health or the baby’s health during pregnancy can put you in a high-risk category.

A high-risk pregnancy usually requires more frequent prenatal visits and regular monitoring.

To get superior obstetrical care, you can request a new patient appointment online, book online through the patient portal if you are already an established patient, or call to schedule a consultation with one of Premier Women’s Care of Southwest Florida’s women’s health-care providers in Fort Myers, Cape Coral or Lehigh Acres.

Where We Deliver

While you may see any provider in our practice for your routine prenatal care, our providers deliver only at specific hospitals. You may wish to select your hospital for delivery based on where your provider delivers. We have designated providers on-call for Fort Myers and Cape Coral every night of the week and every weekend. Whether you go into labor when your provider is on call or not, you will still deliver at the hospital where your provider normally delivers.
