New Life Experience: Cresco Medical Clinic & Regional Health Services of Howard County

Are you expecting a baby and looking for an experienced physician to provide your obstetrical care? The Cresco Medical Clinic has four family practitioners who provide obstetrical services.

Mohit Chawla, MD

Doctors Jensen, Kammerer, Maher and Chawla are certified providers in Neonatal Resuscitation, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and Fetal Monitoring.  Drs. Jensen and Kammerer are also certified in Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics. Physicians also use 3-D OB ultrasound during your clinic visits to monitor your baby during the first trimester.

When it is time for you to deliver your baby at Regional Health Services, it is comforting to know a certified registered nurse anesthetist is available to offer pain control options during labor, including epidurals and intrathecals when appropriate. In the event a cesarean section is necessary, a general surgeon is ready to assist in your special delivery. A registered nurse with specialized training in obstetrics will be by your side before, during and following delivery to answer your questions, monitor fetal heart tones, provide education on the delivery process, breastfeeding, and what to expect once you bring your new baby home.

The hospital OB and Nursery has recently been remodeled with safety, comfort and privacy in mind for patients and family members.  Each large suite has its own private jacuzzi tub for mom.
