Collaborative Practice Model 

At HealthNet, an OB/GYN doctor will lead the plan of care during your pregnancy. Our OB/GYN doctors, certified nurse-midwives, and nurse practitioners work as a team to provide the level of care you need. We can also refer you to other resources like primary care, chiropractic care, dental, vision, behavioral health, pharmacy, pediatrics, and more! We offer in-person, virtual, and phone interpreters, social work support, and enrollment assistance for health insurance at all health centers. 

Your OB Care

Your 1st visit should be scheduled early in your pregnancy. You will meet with an enrollment specialist who will help with any insurance questions and enroll you as an OB patient. Next, a nurse will reach out to you by phone to get your medical history. At your 1st visit, you will meet a provider, get labs drawn, and schedule your first ultrasound if needed. The 2nd visit is usually a complete physical exam including a Pap smear if needed.

An OB/GYN doctor will determine how often you need prenatal visits by an OB/GYN doctor, certified nurse-midwife, or nurse practitioner based on your medical needs. The normal schedule for prenatal visits is monthly until 28 weeks, every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, and weekly until birth. This schedule may vary depending on your needs.

HealthNet OB/GYN providers have been offering waterbirth for many years at the hospital. Waterbirth is an option where you deliver in a tub instead of a hospital bed. Water helps you feel lighter and allows you to move more easily during labor and delivery. Waterbirth is only available to low-risk patients without any medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, or hypertension.

Where We Deliver 

Labor and Delivery, as well as OB Emergency Services (OB Triage), take place at the Riley Hospital Maternity Tower.

OB/GYN providers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any questions or problems that arise while you are at the hospital. If your baby is healthy, we encourage your baby always stays in your room with you.
