    We also offer a postpartum program designed for women who experience a complication in pregnancy. Our goal is to prevent chronic disease by identifying risk factors that present in pregnancy and provide counseling and treatment aimed at reducing the risk of chronic disease later in life.

    We provide consultations for patients referred by obstetricians, midwives, gynecologists, internists and specialists or the patient may call us directly. We see patients for preconception counseling, a one-time pregnancy consultation, or will follow a patient throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. We are in contact with the patient's obstetrician and/or other referring provider throughout care to assure collaboration and a smooth transition after delivery.

    Our physicians see patients at our West River Street office and patients who are admitted to Women & Infants Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital. Our staff is available 24 hours a day for emergency room and inpatient consultations.
