Perinatal Nurses

Perinatal nurses work with patients who are attempting to become pregnant, are currently pregnant, or are recently delivered. Our nurses provide compassionate prenatal care for patients experiencing pregnancy complications.

Perinatal Sonographers

Perinatal sonographers are health professionals who use sonography, or sound waves, to examine female reproductive systems and unborn fetuses for any current or potential medical problems. These sonograms track the growth and development of the fetus to ensure pregnancies are proceeding in a normal, healthy way.
