About the Clinic
Our PIPC team provides complete maternity care for low-risk pregnant women and those who may develop other medical conditions or complications in pregnancy. This includes prenatal care in office, delivery in hospital and care after delivery both for mother and baby. We may also share care with specialist colleagues for women and infants.
The Family Medicine approach supports natural childbirth and
pregnancy and we also care for women with epidurals, and other pain management. We do inductions of labour as indicated, trial of labour for vaginal birth after caesarean section, and perform vacuum-assisted deliveries. Should a caesarean section be required, our physicians will assist the Obstetrician in the operating room. Our physicians will care for both you and your newborn in hospital and work to keep you together for the best start. In addition, our physicians provide counselling on family planning, birth control, IUD/ IUS insertion and diaphragm fitting.
We promote long-term relationships with your health care provider (Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner) and keep communications open with them. This continues as mother and baby return to their health care provider. Our team nurses, lactation consultants, social workers, physician assistant and dietitian are available to you in pregnancy and for 6 weeks postpartum and will communicate with your FHT professionals.
We are a member agency of the Kawartha Food Share and have a Clothing Cupboard for gently used newborn and maternity items. Donations are greatly appreciated.
