Congratulations on your pregnancy! We look forward to serving you during your pregnancy and following it. We are here for you. Know that we pray for you and your family daily. Please ask questions and tell us how you are feeling from visit to visit. We encourage you to write down your questions and bring them to your next visit.
Due to the fact that each Tepeyac doctor cannot be on call seven days a week for 24 hours a day, it is the policy of this practice that all prenatal patients rotate obstetric appointments through the doctors and physician assistant. Meeting our medical staff is done for the welfare and protection of both the patient and the physician. By following this procedure, the patient is familiar with all our delivering doctors and that each doctor is familiar with the patient.
Labor and delivery is arranged at Fair Oaks Hospital (about 15 minutes from the office | map link). Pre-admission registration forms are available at our office.
We ask that patients with birth plans discuss the plans with the doctor. Our doctors do their utmost to respect the plans of patients, however, each patient and her delivery are unique, and unplanned/unexpected medical situations may occur. The doctor will provide his/her best medical judgement that emphasizes safety of mother and baby.
Tepeyac also offers in-office Level I and 20 Week/Level II Ultrasounds. Check with your doctor to find out if the Level II ultrasound is right for you. Please be aware that your baby may not be in an ideal position during the scheduled ultrasound, and you may have to reschedule. Contact your insurance provider because a rescheduled ultrasound may incur an additional cost.
