OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY

 

OBSTETRICS

 

Womens Clinic of Acadiana offers complete obstetric care encompassing prenatal, delivery and post-partum care. We encourage our patients to be involved in the labor and delivery process.

We have friendly staff who will spend time with you on your first obstetrical visit. They will review your health history as well as basic procedures you can expect throughout your pregnancy. We also have a financial counselor on staff who will help to coordinate your benefits with your insurance company. They will answer any financial questions you may have throughout your pregnancy.

The physicians work together in a collaborative fashion to provide you with a safe, competent and positive prenatal and birth experience. 

We typically schedule your first obstetrical visit during 10-12 weeks of gestation, however if you are unsure of your last menstrual period or have had any prior history of miscarriage, we would like to see you for a "confirmation of pregnancy" visit. Please call our office to schedule this appointment during the time that you think you will be approximately 8-10 weeks pregnant (gestational weeks are counted beginning with the first day of your last menstrual period).
