OB Nurse Navigator Program at Medical City Arlington
Bringing your baby into the world is an exciting and special time! At Medical City Arlington, our experienced nursing staff is ready to celebrate this special time with you and your family. We also offer the services of an OB Nurse Navigator to help you through your pregnancy. Candace Garland is a registered nurse who is certified in obstetric care and has years of experience caring for pregnant moms and taking care of pregnant patients with different medical conditions affecting pregnancy. Moms have the option of joining our OB Nurse Navigator Program as well as being referred by their physicians to cater to specific needs they may have.
Our OB Nurse Navigator is here and available to deliver special attention from your second trimester to after you deliver your baby. From providing educational materials to giving families a tour of our Women’s Hospital, our OB Nurse Navigator is on hand to offer insight and advice. It’s a special relationship that continues after mom and baby have gone home, making sure that mom has everything she needs in place for her and her baby.
What You Can Expect
Our OB Nurse Navigator will meet with you one-on-one at the hospital to discuss how the program works, provide you with personalized educational materials and review information about what to expect throughout your pregnancy. She will give an overview of our Women’s Hospital, help with the pre-registration process and share information about childbirth classes available to help prepare you for the arrival of your baby. At the end of the visit, you will receive a tour of our Women’s Hospital.
Our OB Nurse Navigator is a great resource person to discuss different preferences with you such as a birth plan, pediatrician selection and infant feeding plan and can answer any questions you may have at any point during your pregnancy.
As you near your delivery date, our OB Nurse Navigator will meet with you at your convenience to review some additional information for the last weeks of your pregnancy, talk about what you can expect when you come in to deliver and answer any additional questions about your baby’s birth day!
You can choose how involved you want to be with the OB Nurse Navigator Program. You can just talk during the scheduled appointments or you are welcome to contact her as often as you need with any questions you may have along the way!
Medical City Arlington is honored to be a part of such an exciting time for you and your family and we look forward to working with you to meet your needs.
