Obstetrics

Westside OB/GYN in Plantation, Florida offers comprehensive prenatal care for expectant mothers. Our obstetricians, Dr. Mark Grenitz and Dr. Anthony Hood, and physician assistant, Adriana Herrera, work as a team to ensure that you and your baby are healthy and happy.

Our helpful staff and talented practitioners will comfort you every step of the way, through each prenatal visit, ultrasound, and test leading up to labor and delivery. Our moms-to-be are confident about the care they receive at Westside OB/GYN.

Our office is designed with your comfort in mind. We do ultrasounds in the office so you won’t have to drive across town. Every aspect of your care is managed from our office in beautiful Plantation, Florida.

We have experience with all types of pregnancies, including twins, high risk pregnancy, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and premature labor and delivery. We do not do VBAC (vaginal delivery after C-section).

Here are some general tips for a healthy pregnancy:

  • Try not to take any medications during the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy, unless recommended for a specific condition.
  • Take prenatal vitamins daily, but do not take them first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
  • Reduce your intake of caffeinated drinks to two servings per day (including coffee, teas, and colas with caffeine).
  • Avoid alcohol. There is no amount that is considered safe.
  • Call the triage nurse or provider on call for nausea/vomiting if nothing stays in your stomach for greater than 48 hours after following the information sheet's recommendations.
  • If you develop a temperature of 100.4° or greater, take extra strength Tylenol (two pills every three to four hours) to keep your temperature under 100.4° or call the doctor.

Be sure to visit our FAQ page for a list of medications that are safe during pregnancy, guidelines for eating fish and going to the dentist, and what to do in case of a hurricane.
