Prenatal Care and Childbirth

Prenatal Care

We offer comprehensive women’s health care using a specialized team approach that provides care throughout pregnancy and delivery. Along with your Family physician, your prenatal medical team includes:

  • an OB-GYN or Prenatal Provider
  • a Prenatal Nurse to help coordinate your care
  • a Certified Prenatal and Lactation RN
  • a care coordinator to assist with resources and support services.

We will help you through any medical issues, assist with financial concerns, provide nutritional counseling and parenting education, and offer the emotional or social support you may need during your pregnancy. Your Prenatal Coordinator will be your trusted and caring companion during your pregnancy.

Text4Baby

We participate in the Text4Baby program, a free service designed to provide our prenatal patients and new moms with information for a healthy baby through text messages. For more information, please visit Text4Baby. You can sign up for Text4baby in English by texting BABY to 511411. To sign up for Text4baby in Spanish text BEBE to 511411.

Childbirth – Newmarket and Raymond Patients

If you are a patient of the Newmarket or Raymond Centers, you have the option of delivering your baby at the Exeter Hospital Family Center, where our physicians are members of the Exeter Hospital medical staff. Each private birthing room offers a Jacuzzi tub for hydrotherapy and other amenities to assist the new mom as well as the birthing coach.

Childbirth – Nashua Center Patients

If you are a patient of the Nashua Center, you have the option of delivering your baby at the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center Birth Place. Each birthing room at the Medical Center’s Birth Place offers a private, home-like environment. To schedule a tour, please call (603) 577-2560 at least 30 minutes in advance.

Gynecological Care

Board Certified physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants provide sensitive, respectful, high-quality care to women of all ages. We provide routine exams and minor gynecological procedures on-site in all three of our centers. Board Certified OB-GYNs assist women with complex gynecological problems and are available for consultation with other members of your health care team.

Our Newmarket and Raymond centers offer in-office hysteroscopy. This procedure can help women dealing with issues such as abnormal bleeding, fibroids, or polyps of the uterus.  To determine if this procedure is right for you, please contact our office to schedule a consultation appointment.

Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program

New Hampshire’s Let No Woman Be Overlooked Breast and Cervical Cancer Program provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings to women age 21-64.

The program offers eligible participants access to the following services:

  • Women’s Health Exams
  • Mammography
  • Pap Tests
  • Pelvic Exams.

Early detection saves lives, and Lamprey Health Care is committed to enrolling women who are financially unable to access screenings. For the best protection, we urge our patients to combine an annual mammogram test with an annual breast exam and monthly self-exams. Don’t take just our word for it, listen to Elizabeth’s story.
