Your Pregnancy

Our team is committed to providing the most up-to-date obstetrical and medical care, as well individual approach during this highly important time in your life. We understand that you may have a lot of questions and we will do our very best to answer them at each visit.

Our doctors will see you at our office in Des Peres for your prenatal care. We will let you know how often appointments are needed, and also if any additional ultrasound examinations or other surveillance for your baby is medically necessary.

The hospital of choice for delivery is Mercy Hospital. We are very proud of all the state of art services that Mercy Hospital offers our patients. Please feel free to set up a tour and/or sign up for childbirth or sibling classes. In fact, the Women's and Children's Education Department is proud to offer fantastic educational resources, from individual classes to full courses developed to assist families in their preparation for childbirth and parenthood.

We are committed to making this a very smooth and anxiety-free experience for you. However, your doctor may not always be able to be there for your delivery, even though we all try very hard to do so. Our partners in the call pool may be the ones delivering your baby, but we want to assure you that you will get the best care.
