Obstetric and Well Newborn Hospital Services at the Department of Family Medicine

Our family medicine doctors can care for you while you're in the hospital during pregnancy and perform your baby’s delivery. They can also provide care for your newborn child.

Obstetric Hospital Services

When there are issues that make your pregnancy unique and pose special challenges, your family medicine doctor will work with specialists at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC to ensure that you and your baby receive the care that you need.

We also provide in-office obstetric and pregnancy-related services and a clinical doula service to support you through this exciting and sometimes scary time.

If you're pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, contact one of our family medicine clinics to set up an appointment with a family medicine doctor.

Well Newborn Hospital Services

Our family medicine doctors deliver babies and can care for them as newborns in the hospital. They can also care for your child once they leave the hospital through adulthood.

Family medicine doctors are trained to:

  • Help you and your baby get off to a healthy start with breastfeeding
  • Perform circumcisions, if desired
  • Evaluate newborn babies for any conditions that need immediate care
