Prenatal Counseling

What is prenatal counseling?

Before your baby is born, Dr. Bernal can assess their health and monitor their development to ensure a healthy delivery. His prenatal counseling services ensure you have the support and guidance you need to make the right decisions concerning childbirth and your baby’s health.

In the event prenatal screenings reveal issues that affect your baby’s health, Dr. Bernal can discuss what to expect after you deliver to ensure your baby thrives. He also creates a care plan in advance of their birth to give your baby the medical attention they need right after you deliver.

What are the benefits of prenatal counseling?

One of the biggest benefits of prenatal counseling services is the support you receive from Dr. Bernal and his compassionate staff.

Even if there aren’t any health concerns about your baby-to-be, Dr. Bernal can offer guidance and answer questions you have about becoming a parent. He provides an open, nonjudgmental environment for you to express your concerns about pregnancy, changes to your body, and fears you may have about caring for a newborn.

Dr. Bernal can help you manage your anxieties and stress to ensure a healthy, happy delivery and offers resources to address common issues that affect parents-to-be, such as depression, feeling overwhelmed, or difficulties coping with the many changes a new baby brings.

Why should I consider prenatal counseling?

Childbirth isn’t an exact science, and everyone experiences something different during the birth of their baby. Whether you need an emergency cesarean section (C-section) or are expecting health issues with your newborn, Dr. Bernal provides the support you need to make informed decisions.

The goal of prenatal counseling is to ensure you have the resources you need to stay healthy throughout your pregnancy and achieve a safe delivery.

Through prenatal counseling, Dr. Bernal is with you every step of the way and is ready to continue care long after your baby is born. Continuity of care allows him to provide exactly what your child needs as they grow into young adults.
