Finding out you are expecting is one of life’s most exciting moments; however, even before you became pregnant you were probably focused on ways to optimize your health. Now that you are about to become a mom, you need to have an obstetrician that you trust to provide you with care throughout your pregnancy as well as after you deliver. If you are on the hunt for an obstetrician here in Elk City, O.K, our board-certified OBGYN Dr. Natalie Patterson at Patterson Family Medicine And Obstetrics is at your service.
We’re Your Partner in Pregnancy
We know that you’re going to have a lot of questions regarding your pregnancy and delivery along the way and you want to have an obstetrician that not only listens to you but also makes your health a top priority. Dr. Patterson can address any questions or concerns that you might have about prenatal care, genetic testing, labor and delivery, and post-natal care. Our OBGYN team is here to provide you with not only dependable, compassionate care but also advice and recommendations to make your pregnancy a smooth and stress-free experience.
We Offer Prenatal Care and More!
We know that you have a choice when it comes to the family doctors you turn to, including your OBGYN. Our team here at Patterson Family Medicine And Obstetrics goes the extra mile to make sure that you get the treatment and individualized care you need every time you walk through our doors. Prenatal care is an important part of every pregnancy, as it can identify potential issues early on to reduce the risk for complications or health problems during your pregnancy.
You must find an obstetrician that you feel comfortable with, as you will be coming in for regular checkups throughout your pregnancy. You’ll want to schedule your first prenatal appointment as soon as you suspect that you’re pregnant (or have received a positive home pregnancy test). The first visit will occur around 8 weeks. From there, you’ll need one prenatal appointment each month until the 28th week. From the 28th week to the 36th week you’ll come in every two weeks. From the 36th week until delivery you’ll come in once a week.
We also understand that every woman will have different needs throughout her pregnancy. We have worked with women of all ages and preexisting health problems and can tailor our care to meet each patient’s health needs.
Patterson Family Medicine And Obstetrics is the premier practice for women’s health here in Elk City, OK, whether for routine well-women visits, prenatal care, or menopause treatment. To schedule your first visit with our OBGYN, Dr. Patterson call us at (405) 578-5400.
