Personalized Family Care
The decision to start or expand your family is exciting. Selecting the right doctor to care for you and your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. At The Gabrielson Clinic for Women, we understand the importance of selecting your obstetrician and birthing center for childbirth.
Our experienced team provides thorough care and compassion for healthy and safe deliveries. Whether it be prenatal care, labor, delivery, or support during the postpartum period, our team is here to help.
We believe in the education and support of all of our obstetric patients. We offer prenatal care checkups that include prenatal visits, prenatal testing, and screenings to identify any possible health complications during pregnancy. We also provide prenatal classes!
The Gabrielson Clinic for Women has state-of-the-art 2D and 3D ultrasound systems to provide detailed images of the fetus. These images are obtained by highly experienced sonographers who are all registered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS).
A pregnancy is considered high-risk if there is an increased chance that the baby or mother has a health condition. A high-risk pregnancy does not mean a complicated pregnancy or delivery, but rather the expecting mother receives more frequent attention. You may be considered high-risk if you have or have had certain medical conditions. Notably, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, or previous complicated pregnancies.
Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
Many women who have had a previous cesarean (C-section) delivery are able to have a successful VBAC without any complications. The Gabrielson Clinic for Women does offer VBAC delivery. Discuss your wishes for a VBAC with your Gabrielson Clinic provider and include them in your birth plan. It is important to understand the risks and benefits of delivery options before making a final birthing decision.
