Low Risk Pregnancies
- Sensitive, state-of-the-art prenatal care and childbirth
We provide individualized care in partnership with the woman and her family to insure the most successful and personal outcome.
- Skilled professionals providing mother and baby care
A team of physicians and skilled staff are available to provide care for both routine and emergency conditions.
- The teaching hospital advantage
Care is given at a variety of locations of UF Health. Delivery is at UF Health Shands Hospital which is proud to be a teaching hospital. Medical knowledge changes rapidly and we are dedicated to provide the most up to date, evidence-based knowledge. This is facilitated by having a team of attending physicians, fellows, residents and students, rather than only one individual, provide care. Care is provided by the level of knowledge and skill appropriate for a problem.
- Immediate expert care for unexpected complications
Four obstetric and gynecologic professionals are available in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer questions and care for any unexpected problems.
- 24 hour anesthesiology coverage
An anesthesiologist is also present in the labor and delivery unit at all times and would not have to be called in to provide a labor epidural or help with an emergency cesarean.
- Routine obstetric ultrasound
We believe all pregnant women should have the benefit of an ultrasound examination. Because of the specialized training and experience of our physicians and sonographers , we are expert in spotting problems with a pregnancy. We are happy to record your exam for you (bring a DVD + R or DVD + RW disk).
- Genetic screening
Many genetic problems can occur in women with no risk factors. For this reason, we provide the full range of genetic screening tests for low and high-risk women.
