Welcome to Pasadena Women’s Medical Group and congratulations on your pregnancy. This is an exciting and important time for you, your family, and your baby. We know that you will have questions and we encourage you to write them down so that you don’t forget to ask them. This handbook will answer many questions relating to you and your pregnancy. Childbearing is a normal event that is helped by partnership between you and your partner and your health care provider.
Pasadena Women’s Medical Group is composed of four Medical doctors who are specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology. We are on a rotating call schedule which means that any one of the physicians may be “on call” to deliver your baby or care for you in an emergency. If you prefer to choose one doctor to care for you during your pregnancy we do suggest that you see the other group physicians for at least one visit, late in your pregnancy, so you have the opportunity to meet everyone involved with your care.
Our office is open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through Thursday and from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Friday. The doctor’s answering service will receive calls after our usual office hours, seven days a week. When circumstances permit, we would like you to call us before you go to the hospital for an emergency or to deliver. We often can advise your best course of action over the telephone. We may wish to meet you at the hospital or at our office.
