While pregnancy is an exciting time, it can also be a time of concern and uncertainty. We at Women’s Healthcare Associates are here to provide you with optimal prenatal care during this special time. Our main objective is to have a healthy mom and baby.
Please call our office to schedule a prenatal appointment at 806-355-6330 with our physicians and nurse practitioners.
At each appointment, your blood pressure, weight and urine will be checked. Occasionally, sonograms will be performed. These sonograms are generally conveniently performed by our skilled technicians on the 2nd floor of our building. An anatomy sonogram will be performed during the 2nd trimester and the baby’s internal organs will be viewed. This sonogram is usually when the gender of the baby can be revealed, if you want to know.
Our physicians deliver at both Northwest Texas Hospital and Baptist Saint Anthony’s Hospital. Attendance at either of the hospital’s childbirth classes is encouraged. You can call either hospital to find out the schedule of classes and to register.
Please notify your provider if you desire permanent sterilization (tubal ligation). In some cases, you will need to sign a consent form at least 30 days prior to your delivery.
We recommend avoiding medication as much as possible, including supplements and over the counter medications, especially during the first trimester. Please see our list of approved over the counter medications after the first trimester.
