There are many unknowns involved during any pregnancy and delivery, and we believe it is our job to educate you and your partner on the issues that can arise and support you every step of the way. Our goal is to reduce your anxiety so you can enjoy pregnancy and childbirth.
At Clifton OB/GYN, a safe labor and delivery is our top priority. We want to ensure that you are comfortable with the physician who will be attending your delivery and with the staff guiding you through your pregnancy.
Although a safe delivery is our first priority, we do our best to introduce as few medical interventions as possible if they are not needed. Though no one would like to think that complications may arise, they do at times. No matter the circumstance, we will be prepared to provide a safe and successful birth experience.
At Clifton OB/GYN we are uniquely capable of providing the most specialized care for high-risk pregnancies.
We understand that it’s possible for even the healthiest women to develop pregnancy complications that require extra attention.
In the event this happens to you, rest assured that you are in good hands, as our team is specifically trained, experienced, and equipped to handle any complications that may arise. We will monitor you and your baby closely and work with you to determine the right treatment options for your situation.
We screen our patients thoroughly to determine if any factors are present that could cause any problems during pregnancy and childbirth. Your pregnancy is considered high risk if any of the following conditions are present:
- Repeated pregnancy loss
- Chronic hypertension
- History of or current experience with preterm labor (PTL)
- Pregnant with multiple babies (twins or higher)
- Gestational or type 1 diabetes
- Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH)
- Placental problems
- Other risk factors as determined by your team
If you have any of these risk factors, we offer the experience and skills you want in order to have a healthy outcome. Our advanced prenatal care for high-risk obstetric patients includes:
- Maternal and fetal testing to evaluate the health of the mother and the baby
- Electronic fetal monitoring
- Pregnancy co-management with a maternal-fetal specialist
We take every precaution to provide vigilant care for you and your baby through your entire child-birthing experience. After delivery, your baby will be monitored by experienced neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, and the highest level neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) where needed.
At Clifton OB/GYN, we want you to have the birth experience you desire, and our team is committed to ensuring that your baby’s birth is a peaceful, safe, and comforting process.
If you have pre-existing high-risk issues that would keep you from having a naturalized birth, we will do everything we can to give you the birth experience you would like with as little intervention as possible.
In some cases, a C-section may be the safest alternative for a healthy delivery.
In the event that a pregnancy or labor progresses and complications occur, or the mother already has certain challenges that make a normal vaginal birth risky, a C-section may be necessary.
Families can still have a beautiful and bonding birth experience. Please view our recent video featuring Dr. Haddad and his associate midwife Dr. Lonnie Morris helping expectant parents make plans for a lovely birth even with a scheduled C-section.
A vaginal birth after delivery (VBAC) can often be a safe choice for many women. Should you and your doctor agree to try a VBAC, we will screen you to see if you can sustain a “trial of labor after cesarean,” or TOLAC.
If we determine that you are a prospect for a VBAC delivery, you will go into labor with the goal to deliver vaginally. As the labor progresses, if all is normal, you can experience a safe vaginal birth.
As many as 4 out of 10 women who have a trial of labor still need to have a C-section, but we are with you every step of the way. You and your doctor can talk about your risk for having problems during a trial of labor.
Whether it is right for you to try for a VBAC delivery will depend on several factors. Among the most important are the circumstances of the previous C-section and how many C-sections you have had in the past. Circumstances will differ from one patient to another.
The team at Clifton OB/GYN provides complete care for you and your baby beginning before your first trimester with continued support throughout the postpartum phase of your childbirth experience.
We offer comprehensive prenatal healthcare and the psycho-social support necessary to help you transition into the role of motherhood, along with postpartum care in a warm and welcoming environment. Our obstetricians offer preconception counseling as well as evaluation and management of complicated ongoing pregnancies.
Other services include genetic screening, nuchal translucency screening (first trimester screening for fetal anomalies), and advanced maternal age monitoring.
