COVID-19 and pregnancy

Our team is here to create a safe and welcoming experience for you and your baby. We understand you have many questions and concerns about exposure to COVID-19 during your pregnancy. We’ve created FAQs and a video to help answer your questions about preganancy and breast milk. Please reach out to your provider if you have any additional questions or concerns.

If you're thinking about having a baby, or if you are already pregnant, congratulations! Having a baby is a special experience and a journey for which we want to provide you with compassionate care, information and support.

Our services include:

  • Obstetricians, nurse midwives, nurse practitioners and family medicine physicians who practice a range of services
  • The option of Prenatal Testing and Genetic Counseling that can help determine if you are at a higher risk to have a baby with certain types of birth defects
  • A Maternal Fetal Medicine (high-risk pregnancy) team that cares for women who are having out-of-the-ordinary pregnancies
  • Classes and support groups for pregnancy and for post-partum.

Read more about pregnancy care and choosing a team at each of our locations. We have offices in Concord, Keene, Lebanon, Manchester, Nashua, NH and Southwestern Vermont.

Beginning July 15, 2018, we are welcoming patients who have been receiving their pre-natal and post-natal care at our clinic on the campus of our affiliate hospital, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital (APD) in Lebanon, NH.
