Prenatal, Postpartum Care

Obstetrical care services are the clinical assessment, management, treatment, and coordination of services and referrals for the mother and fetus to maximize the outcome of the pregnancy. Prenatal care services for the care and treatment of both the mother and developing fetus include ongoing risk assessment and counseling. Postpartum care services are the care of the mother during the six-week period after childbirth.
