Making the decision that you are ready to “start trying” is extremely exciting but it may also bring up a lot of questions and worries. For those who are taking their first steps in the parenthood journey, Dr. Aristizabal offers preconception consultations which give future parents a better idea of what to expect, while also focusing on:
Optimization of health and wellness prior to pregnancy, ways to enhance natural fertility, and counseling and care for specific infertility concerns. If you are due for an annual exam at this visit, we will perform that as well.
If you are new to Wombkeepers, this is a great chance to get to know our team and our unique approach to prenatal care. It also establishes you in the practice and guarantees that we will be able to care for you for all future pregnancies, regardless of our patient load, as we never limit the number of established patients we accept for obstetrics care but we sometimes have to limit new patients for obstetrics if we are too full, which is how we keep our low patient-doctor ratio.
Our practice is tailored to care for the needs of women in their childbearing years. We offer routine and problem focused gynecology care for our pregnant and postpartum patients for up to three years following their delivery, including routine annual exams, pap smears, breast exams, and contraception, including IUD placement and removal. We do not accept new patients for routine gynecology who are not planning a pregnancy in the coming year.
