prenatal care 

Prenatal care is the nursing and medical care recommended for women before and during their pregnancy/s. Good prenatal care strives to detect any possibility problems early on in the pregnancy and to prevent them if at all possible (by providing information on good nutrition, vitamin intake, exercise, etc). Routine prenatal care has played a role in reducing maternal death rates and miscarriages, while additionally limiting birth defects and low birth weight as well as other preventable infant problems.

MMC’s prenatal care program is supported by Certified Nurse Midwives - Anita Baker-Ross, Amy Papszycki and Becky Johnson an OB-GYN – Dr. Fornera and three primary care providers – Dr. Winkler , Dr. Colotta and Dr. Bryant . As a result MMC is able to provide a full range of Obstetrics care from family practice, specialized OB-GYN through to pediatric care.
