Pregnancy

November is Prematurity Awareness Month!

A developing baby goes through important growth throughout pregnancy - including in the final months and weeks. Premature (also known as preterm) birth is when a baby is born too early, before 37 weeks of pregnancy have been completed. The earlier a baby is born, the higher the risk of death or serious disability. Long-term problems may include developmental delay (not meeting the developmental milestones for his or her age) and lower performance in school.

Why you should choose a board-certified OB GYN

The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) offers board certification in the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology and in five subspecialties. Board certification is a voluntary pursuit. Physicians are only required to secure a medical license to practice medicine in any given state. Physicians who choose to pursue certification are enhancing their medical knowledge beyond that required of state licensure.
