One of the most common reasons for visiting our office is to receive some form of birth control or contraceptive. While there are plenty of options available, and many have their own unique benefits and risks, not every form of contraceptive is right for you. Only your physician, who has your complete medical history and list of current medications, completely understands the risks and benefits and know which birth control is right for you. What’s more, many people don’t give their birth control the same attention as they would with other medications. But the fact of the matter is Birth Control, whether it comes in the form of a pill or an IUD, has an effect on your body, and you should completely understand those effects before you begin your regular birth control regimen.

While decades ago, it may have been more of a guessing game, scientific and medical advancements have actually proven which foods are best for you and baby while pregnant.

Welcoming your little one into the world can be one of the most powerful moments in your life. The love and peace that fills your heart is almost indescribable, and even a single moment away from your baby can instantly leave you longing for them again. But focusing all of that time and energy on your newest addition can leave you emotionally drained and even detached from the rest of your family. It’s important to foster that strong bond between baby and parent, but it’s equally important to make sure your partner, other children, and even pets still receive the love and attention they deserve.
