Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey practitioners and staff are excited to be a part of this very special time in your life from pre-pregnancy through and beyond the birth of your child. Because we believe that women should have choices and a range of resources during pregnancy and childbirth, we are proud to offer the services of Certified Nurse Midwives on our medical staff. Our providers deliver at Virtua Voorhees and Kennedy Washington Township.
Our services include:
We believe that planning a healthy pregnancy is one of the keys to having a healthy pregnancy. If you anticipate pregnancy, our physicians can meet with you and your spouse/partner to review your medical history, prior pregnancy history, current medications, nutritional issues, and other issues that may be relevant to your future pregnancy plans. We can also discuss with you certain laboratory or radiology studies that may be relevant to your pregnancy goals. Our office also periodically hosts free information seminars for individuals and couples who are planning to become pregnant sometime in the near future.
Normal Pregnancy Care
At Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey, our goal is to help you to have a healthy and happy pregnancy. Plan to attend one of our periodic pregnancy information seminars for those individuals and couples who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy (patients and non-patients invited). At your first "New OB" visit, we will talk about nutrition in pregnancy, tests available or recommended, prenatal vitamins, and what to expect throughout your pregnancy with us.
High Risk Pregnancy Care
With more than 20 years of combined OB/GYN experience, the board certified physicians at Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey have cared for women through a wide array of "high risk" pregnancy problems. "High risk" may be due to "Advanced Maternal Age" (i.e. age 35 or older), prior history of preterm delivery or other pregnancy complication, or complications due to medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or genetic diseases. Our physicians work closely with perinatologists (high risk pregnancy specialists) in the area, and will take appropriate action to achieve a healthy outcome for both mother and baby.
Sometimes the toughest part of a pregnancy is just getting pregnant. At Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey, our physicians will review your history and physical exam and try to determine any obvious causes of infertility. Evaluation may include laboratory studies, biopsies, radiology studies, and treatment with fertility medications. Sometimes a referral to a qualified infertility specialist is the best next step. Our physicians can help you decide if a referral is necessary, and if so, which specialist group is best for you.
