First Trimester Screenings and Tests

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our team of trusted experts is here to guide expectant mothers through the crucial first trimester with dedicated screenings and tests. The early weeks of pregnancy are essential for the wellbeing of both mother and child, as many important developmental milestones occur in this initial stage. Our range of diagnostic procedures ensures a healthy start by detecting potential complications like Down syndrome or other chromosomal disorders.

Regular Check-ups and Monitoring

A key service we offer at Women’s Health Group Chicago is systematic check-ups and monitoring throughout your pregnancy. Regular prenatal visits allow us to manage any underlying conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure that can harm you or your baby if not appropriately managed. Detailed assessments enable us to track your baby’s development accurately using advanced ultrasound technology while providing you with an ongoing stream of information about what to expect throughout the duration of your pregnancy.

Nutritional Counseling and Supplements

Pregnancy requires additional nutrients to sustain both mother and baby; therefore, nutritional counseling forms a core part of our prenatal care regimen at Womens Health Group Chicago. Our registered dietitians provide personalized advice based on individual dietary needs, ensuring optimal nutrition throughout every chapter of maternity. Additionally, appropriate supplementation plays a significant role in assisting neural development, preventing birth defects, easing morning sickness- all geared towards fostering vibrant health during this critical period.

Birthing Classes and Preparation

The journey towards becoming parents should be beautiful yet empowering! That’s why our professional staff conducts comprehensive birthing classes designed ergonomically around delivering education related to labor processes explicitly aimed at sharpening practical skills needed for childbirth. These sessions effectively prepare expectant moms physically & emotionally for delivery alongside their partners allowing them space for asking questions thereby facilitating informed decision-making closer to labor time.

High-risk Pregnancy Management

The Womens Health Group Chicago is here to assist you in the unexpected. Managing a high-risk pregnancy requires specialized knowledge and care, which our dedicated team provides with empathy and expertise. Rest assured your concerns will be addressed as we devise an individual healthcare plan aimed at safeguarding both mother’s & baby’s health while ensuring regular monitoring to track progress or treat complications promptly.

Postnatal Care

Our commitment doesn’t end after childbirth; it extends into comprehensive postnatal care targeted towards speeding up recovery whilst checking for possible risks like postpartum depression. Our vast range of services ensures that this new phase wouldn’t just only be safe but additionally enjoyable all the while as new parents transit smoothly through early-nursing-related challenges onto cherishing these precious moments forever!

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
