When you’re pregnant, there are a lot of things in your life that you can’t control. Your pregnancy care shouldn’t be one of them.
That’s why MultiCare lets you choose how we’ll support you throughout your pregnancy. You can receive prenatal care from the provider of your choice — choosing from certified nurse midwives, OB/GYN physicians and family medicine physicians specializing in obstetric care.
Each type of provider offers distinct benefits, so you can choose the one that works best for your personal and family needs.
Certified nurse midwives can provide care related to family planning, routine exams, and pregnancy and childbirth. Midwives are known for providing a more holistic approach to labor and delivery.
OB/GYNs can provide a full spectrum of pregnancy- and family planning-related care, including high-risk pregnancies and those that require cesarean sections.
Family medicine physicians with an OB specialty (FMOB) can provide care related to family planning, routine exams, and pregnancy and childbirth. They are also able to provide pediatrics and family care.
MultiCare’s Virtual OB Visits provide you with prenatal care in the convenience of your home that’s personalized to meet your needs and fit into your busy schedule. This service gives you more of what you need and expect throughout your pregnancy — a tailored experience, as well as new care options, tools and resources that allow you to match your care to your personal needs, preferences and lifestyle.
Sometimes, challenges arise during pregnancy that can affect your health or the health of your unborn baby. MultiCare’s high-risk pregnancy care gives those with high-risk pregnancies the extra special prenatal care and attention they need.
