At Desert Sky Women’s Healthcare, women can find comprehensive, compassionate care from conception throughout the postpartum period by our OBGYN. We can accommodate not only normal pregnancy and birth, but also high-risk pregnancies and deliveries. We encourage you to be a partner in your health care decisions by communicating your wishes with the intention of developing YOUR optimal birth experience together with your OBGYN.

We offer a wide range of birthing options, depending on your personal preferences, pregnancy risks and labor situation. For qualified patients looking for a non-invasive genetic testing, we offer optional early screening. We also have ultrasound in office for convenient scheduling.

We proudly provide delivery services at Trios Women’s and Children’s Hospital to ensure quality care for all families. They provide private all-inclusive rooms with well-trained nurses, lactation support, 24-hour anesthesia service and a special care nursery certified to care for infants who are born at 32 weeks gestation or later.
