HEALTHY MOMS = HEALTHY BABIES
At La Familia Medical Center we know that your health will impact the health of your baby. Our family medicine providers, obstetrical specialists, nurses and health education team provide you with up-to-date prenatal care to help ensure the health of you and your baby. Our goal is to decrease the need for c-section deliveries, increase babies' birth weights, and increase the number of women entering prenatal care in the first trimester of pregnancy.
We offer an extensive prenatal program that provides both individual and group sessions in both English and Spanish. We teach the importance of good nutrition, adequate exercise, avoiding harmful substances, recognizing the signs of problems with the pregnancy, and how to get the care you and your baby need. Our education team includes nurses, behavioral health specialists, a certified dietitian, a lactation specialist and health education case workers or "promotoras".
