Staying Home, Staying Safe

In responding to COVID-19 by offering VirtualAppointments, we'll be spacing visits, asking only the pregnant person and partner (if well) to come in, and changing appointments as necessary. Click ANYWHERE on this message to get to the appointments page. We will be loaning equipment (including fetal heart dopplers) as it's available. You can help by purchasing the simpler items posted on Amazon below.

Expecting a Sibling

If you've ever tried taking iron, you know how difficult it is to avoid the minerals in your vitamins and diet that bind to iron and make render it useless (and upsets your stomach). 

Enter extended-release, once daily products like SlowFeFE CapFeosol Bifera, & Ferrosequels. They slowly release elemental iron over a 24 hour period, so you don't have to worry as much about when and what you eat. For those whose tummies need it, FE Cap & Ferrosequels contain a stool softener.
