Coordination transfer of care to hospital
Call anytime, we are usually able to get you in within a day or for an appointment to confirm the pregnancy with a urine test done in the office. At that visit, the provider will discuss your options, whether you choose to continue the pregnancy or not. You will then be scheduled for your next visit within a week.
At the next visit you will meet with our prenatal counselor, who will discuss important topics about pregnancy health, review your personal and family health history to see if any additional testing is appropriate. Your counselor will also help get you set up with Medi-Cal insurance, WIC, and link you to dental care if needed. Expect to spend about 40 minutes at this visit plus blood work.
While at the clinic that day, you will get standard blood and urine tests done and be scheduled for your first appointment to meet with Dr. Mitchell.
Dr. Mitchell will work with you throughout the entire pregnancy and delivery! She is a Family Medicine physician who also does Obstetrics, so she will be able to care for your newborn after delivery as well if you choose. You will meet with her once a month in the clinic for the first 2 trimesters of the pregnancy, then more frequently as you get closer to your due date. She has available appointments during the morning, afternoon, and evening on various days of the week.
She delivers babies at Woodland Memorial Hospital, so if you choose to deliver there, she will be on call for you when you go into labor. She will also work closely with you (available by pager even when the clinic is closed) if any concerns come up, like unusual pain, early contractions, or concerns for infection.
After the delivery at Woodland, Dr. Mitchell will continue to see both you and your baby at the hospital until you are both ready to go home. You and baby will then be able to continue your care together at the clinic, where we also have a pediatrician and breast feeding consultant (who can do home visits if needed) to help support your new family!
How soon should I come to the clinic if I missed my period or had a positive home pregnancy test?
The earlier the better, but anytime before 10 weeks after your last period is ideal. This way we can discuss important pregnancy-specific health issues and do standard blood and urine tests
