Deliveries are at Arnot Ogden Medical Center.  We work with you to get you the delivery YOU want.  Whether that's dim lighting, and soft music while you labor in the tub or an epidural as soon as you walk in the door.  We are also able to offer you the option of a VBAC if that is your goal.   We are here for you, throughout your labor and delivery. 


Done right in our office by our certified sonographer Jen.  An ultrasound will be done early, usually at your first visit to confirm the pregnancy and determine a reliable due date. You'll be able to hear the baby's heart beat at this first ultrasound.  Later you will have an ultrasound where your baby will be screened for any potential problems. You will be able to see your baby's face, and can find out the sex if you desire. You will receive 3D pictures at each ultrasound.  Jen carefully screens for any abnormalities.  You can be completely confident in her care.
