Prenatal, Pregnancy & Obstetrical Care


Prenatal Care for Amherst, Buffalo, Tonawanda, NY & Beyond

At Suburban Women’s Healthcare, PC, we want to thank all of our patients and clients we have been fortunate to benefit and support their prenatal care. We believe our office is welcoming to new and returning patients and looks forward to sharing a positive experience with you during your pregnancy and delivery. We know that pregnancy is a time where you will have many questions and concerns. Our health care professionals are ready to answer your concerns and see to your needs at this important part of your life.

Primary Affiliation

We are primarily affiliated with Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. Our practice includes obstetricians and nurse practitioners ready to provide excellent care and attention to all of our patients. Your office visits during your pregnancy are scheduled on a rotating basis between all of the providers. All of the physicians in our practice are board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our nurse practitioners are welcoming and helpful to accommodate convenient appointment times during your pregnancy. Although our nurse practitioners do not perform deliveries, they are well versed in all aspects of pregnancy care, prenatal care, gynecology. Our healthcare professionals will assist with your pregnancy ultrasounds and other routine checkups during your pregnancy. If you notice abnormal periods during your pregnancy, be sure to contact your doctor and go to the emergency room right away.

Our Pregnancy Care

One of the most important aspects in our practice is to follow a woman through her pregnancy and into motherhood. The global obstetrical care will include:
  • Pregnancy ultrasounds (performed in the office by our qualified ultrasound technician)
  • Comprehensive first OB visit – we welcome questions and concerns
  • Monthly visits for the first 28 weeks (includes screening for gestational diabetes)
  • Biweekly visits during weeks 30-36 weeks

Diabetic Teaching & Information

We also have a team ready to help with diabetic teaching for residents in the Amherst, NY; Buffalo, NY; and Tonawanda, NY areas. Learning about diabetes, especially when you are planning on getting pregnant or are already pregnant, is very important for your health and the health of your baby. On top of diabetic teaching, we also provide medical weight loss management to help you reach the weight you desire. We offer screenings for gestational diabetes to ensure you and your baby are not at risk and to help control your diabetes throughout pregnancy. In addition to screening for diabetes, we also perform pap smear exams to help identify any indications of cervical cancer. For more information or to schedule an appointment with us, call today.

Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy

Your vaginal discharge will not change much during pregnancy, so any abnormalities should be talked about with your doctor. The typical clear or white discharge with no strong odor is nothing to be concerned about, and you will have more vaginal discharge during pregnancy. However, if your vaginal discharge is yellow or green you may have an infection, so you should speak to your doctor as soon as you can. Another sign of infection to look out for is abnormal consistencies of your vaginal discharge. A thick and clumpy discharge instead of a more watery and opaque discharge could indicate a yeast infection. When it comes to vaginal discharge, the only other color that can be normal during pregnancy is a slightly pink discharge. Pink discharge is typically seen after having sex or doing a specific type of exercise. You only need to call your provider if it stays pink or if you have heavier bleeding like a period.
