The birth of your baby will be one of the most important experiences of your life. While medical personnel have certain routines they follow, they also want to make sure that you feel good about how things are handled the day your baby is born.
We recommend writing a simple, clear birth plan that let’s us know your preferences. Dr. Krystal Pham will review the many options with you and answer any questions you may have. We encourage you to create your plan early and keep it positive by focusing on what you do want, not what you don’t.
It’s not necessary to have a birth plan, but taking the time to consider your options is beneficial. Having your wishes documented for your delivery team ensures clear communication and can make your experience less stressful.
What should you include in your birth plan?
Start with the basics. Your name and the names and contact information of your doctor and whoever you want in the room with you.
Labor preferences: This includes creating an atmosphere that will make you feel comfortable. You may want music or quiet with dimmed lights. It is also a great opportunity to let us know if you want items like a birthing ball or to allow people to take pictures.
Pain Management: Let us know if you would like an epidural or other pain relief methods. Dr. Pham will discuss this with you to help you decide. If you choose not to have something in your birth plan, you still have the option to change your mind during delivery.
Delivery Preferences: This is your opportunity to let the delivery team know how you feel about an episiotomy, watching the birth with a mirror, letting your partner cut the cord and other possibilities.
Baby Care Preferences: You can inform us if you will be breast feeding and want to start right away. Other considerations include where your baby sleeps and if a boy, whether or not you want him circumcised.
Once you have completed your birth plan outline, go over it with Dr. Pham, your labor coach, partner, and any other key people you want involved. Dr. Pham can help you refine it, if necessary, to ensure it is complete and in alignment with hospital policies.
Copies of your birth plan should be given to Dr. Pham, your hospital or birthing center, and whoever else feels appropriate to you.
We find that our patients who have created birth plans usually feel more confident when their time comes. They know that we understand their preferences and are committed to helping them have the best experience possible.
If you are looking for an OB/GYN to assist you through your pregnancy and delivery, give us a call. We would love to support you through this precious time of your life.

Most couples who plan on having children would prefer to have them within a specific time frame. They may want to enjoy a year or two of their relationship before children or have career, education or financial goals they want to achieve first. They may also prefer to choose how many children they have and how far apart they will be.
It is not unusual for women to spend up to 30 years on contraceptives or using other family planning measures to stay within their childbearing goals.
We can help you with all of your family planning needs from age 15 through your reproductive years, including:
Your family planning visits will usually include a medical history review, physical exam and discussion of your short and long term reproductive goals. We will then provide the information and tools that will help you make your family plan come true.
Don’t leave your family creation to chance. Give us a call today!

We encourage you to come in for your first prenatal visit as soon as you find out you are pregnant.
Your baby is already developing and early prenatal care can decrease the risk of complications and help ensure it’s health. We will also support you by answering questions, providing reassurance, and guiding you through the steps that will protect the health of both you and your little one.
Some of the things we may recommend include:
Prenatal Vitamins – These vitamins are designed specifically for the health of babies and mom’s to be. For example, they include folic acid that can help prevent the development of brain and spinal cord defects. Your body will also be changing and have different needs that will be supported by the specific contents of prenatal vitamins.
Healthy Diet – It is important that you eat well and drink plenty of water during your pregnancy. Your diet should include protein, plenty of fresh vegetables, and foods rich in iron and calcium. We will provide guidance and support you in eating the best you can during this special time.
Immunizations – We may recommend that you and your partner get flu shots to prevent your getting sick during pregnancy. Tdap vaccines are also commonly recommended. They prevent whooping cough, tetanus, and diphtheria and can continue to protect your baby in her weeks after birth.
Prenatal Appointments as Advised – It is important to stay consistent with your recommended prenatal doctor visits. At each appointment we will ask for a urine sample, check your weight and belly measurements to assess your baby’s growth, and listen to their heartbeat. Most “mom’s to be” say listening to the heartbeat is their favorite thing.
Being committed to your prenatal care is the best way to ensure that you and your baby stay healthy.
We will help you every step of the way.

Providing quality nutrition for your baby during pregnancy can help ensure it’s health, as well as your own. The following steps will help you make sure that both you and your little one are getting the nutrition you need.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Proper pregnancy nutrition includes eating lean protein, a wide variety of vegetables, and whole grains. Foods rich in iron and calcium like leafy greens, milk, cheese, fish, and lean meats are also beneficial.
Nutrition during pregnancy is also about the foods you will want to avoid. Raw or under-cooked foods like meats, fish, eggs, and sprouts can be risky, as well as unpasteurized milk. Produce should be washed carefully.
Highly processed snacks, sugar, and extra salt are generally unhealthy while other foods like organ meats, caffeine, and high-mercury fish have specific components that may harm your baby.
You will need to drink more water while pregnant. The extra water will help your baby form, create amniotic fluid, carry nutrients, and flush out waste and toxins.
It is generally recommended that you consume 8-12 cups of fluid a day during pregnancy. Milk, juice, sparkling water, and herbal teas all count as fluid or water intake. If you find drinking plain water boring, mix it with fruit or other flavors, just avoid caffeine, alcohol, or sugary drinks.
Take Prenatal Vitamins Daily
We will recommend specific vitamins for you when you come in for your first prenatal visit. They are designed to support your baby’s development and keep you healthy.
For example, they provide additional folic acid which can help prevent brain and spinal cord defects. Prenatal vitamins are based on current science and it is important you are consistent with taking them every day.
When you come in for your prenatal care visits we will give you more information and support you in providing optimal nutrition during pregnancy for you and your baby.
Prenatal appointments should start as soon as you find out you are pregnant. If you don’t already have a doctor you love, give us a call.
We would love to be a part of your pregnancy and delivery journey.
