Our Approach

Healthy Pregnancy Starts With Healthy Living

We are pleased to provide care for women during their childbearing years.  This includes prenatal care, delivery in the hospital, and postpartum care.  Since a healthy pregnancy starts with maximizing healthy living prior to conception, it may be wise to have an appointment in the office beforehand.

Pregnancy Complications

Certain pregnancy complications such as Preterm Labor, Hypertension, Diabetes, Birth Defects, and even Miscarriage may be avoided by healthy decisions before conception.  In the office during an appointment we may discuss topics such as nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation, and specific vitamin supplementation.

Highest Quality and Safety

Our goal is to promote the highest of quality and safety measures as recommended nationally for women in pregnancy.  We embrace evidence based initiatives, including The Keystone Project, Safer Healthcare and other nationally acclaimed hospital programs which are directed to improving care for women.  We are committed to reducing Perinatal Morbidity and Mortality.

Subspecialists Available For High-Risk Pregnancies

We are also committed to providing women with High Risk Pregnancies the opportunity to see Subspecialists as needed.  We have arranged for referrals and transports to Presbyterian/Saint Luke’s Medical Center in Denver.  We also have a working relationship with Dana Damron, M.D., Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist in Billings, MT. Dr. Damron is affiliated with Billings Clinic and is happy to see our patients from Fremont County with high risk pregnancy conditions.  Finally, we have attended Continuing Medical Education courses in High Risk Pregnancy sponsored by the University of Utah School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, located in Salt Lake City.

Committed to Providing the Best Care

In summary, we are committed to providing the best of care for women during pregnancy.  All our care is devoted to affirming the dignity of women and promoting respect for your unborn baby.  Please make an appointment as questions and concerns arise regarding childbirth.

Excellent gynecologic care requires a more sensitive approach than mainstream healthcare.
