What To Watch For
Every mother looks forward to delivering a healthy baby and feeling well during her pregnancy. But sometimes a previous medical condition, or an issue that develops while you are carrying your baby, can mean you will need more prenatal care and closer monitoring by Dr. Barbara Hessel.
How Will Dr. Hessel Care For You?
If Dr. Hessel feels that you need more frequent prenatal care, you can feel comfortable knowing that you and your baby will be closely monitored. This may mean more frequent ultrasounds and measuring of the baby to see how he or she is growing, checking your vital signs more often or referring you to a nutritionist, mental health counselor or other medical professional as needed.
When it’s time to meet your baby, you’ll deliver at Long Island Jewish University Hospital, where a team of trained nurses, nursery staff and Dr. Hessel will be helping you every step of the way. From natural delivery to planned C-sections and everything in between, you will receive the most advanced care possible as we team with you with the same goal: healthy baby and healthy you.
