Our Obstetrical Care and Pregnancy Services
Knowing your child’s potential for inherited conditions can be critical in their long-term health. Genetic screenings can help detect potential issues sooner.
Noninvasive Prenatal Testing
Our doctors can perform testing using small fragments of DNA circulating in your blood, avoiding the need for testing measures that could be dangerous to your fetus.
Our doctors are specially trained and will evaluate your risk for early labor. You can rest assured knowing we will be prepared should your child be born early.
Monitoring your baby’s development and performing routine testing helps our staff keep you and your baby healthy throughout pregnancy.
We help new moms manage both the physical and emotional changes associated with childbirth, providing the tools you need to keep you and your newborn healthy through the formative first months.
Treatment of Cervical Insufficiency
Our doctors are specially trained to identify at-risk pregnancies and perform treatment that can help manage issues associated with cervical insufficiency, including cervical cerclage.
Gestational Diabetes Management
Early detection during your routine prenatal care screenings can allow your doctor to help you manage gestational diabetes and reduce the likelihood of complications during delivery.
Trial of Labor After Cesarean Section/ VBAC
If you have previously given birth by cesarean section, we’ll work with you to determine whether a vaginal birth can safely work for you.

Expert and timely obstetric care when you need it most
In our efforts to raise the bar in women’s health, Intermountain Healthcare established OB/GYN hospitalist programs throughout the Las Vegas Valley to ensure that one of our caring providers is available to our patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
With these programs, you will continue normal office visits with your established provider. Should a medical concern arise, an Intermountain Healthcare laborist will be available at Spring Valley Hospital, Centennial Hospital, and MountainView Hospital to address your time-sensitive needs.
What is a laborist?
OB hospitalists, also known as laborists, are board-certified OB/GYNs who are stationed at hospital locations and dedicated to delivering babies or responding to urgent obstetrical needs.
When do you need a laborist?
Pregnancy, labor, and delivery are all unpredictable and require specialized care the moment you need it. Laborists within our Intermountain Healthcare network are all trained and aligned with our OB/GYN physicians, ensuring that your care and delivery are provided holistically.
What are the benefits of a laborist program?
Women’s care models with laborist programs reduce labor induction rates and preterm births because they ensure the birth plan you’ve discussed with your obstetrician are kept top of mind. Intermountain Healthcare built a laborist program that focuses our women’s care model on quality, timely, and coordinated care.
Our Laborist Team
We know that having peace of mind during your delivery comes from working with care teams who provide both deep expertise and genuinely caring interactions. That’s why our laborist program hires personable, highly skilled providers for the delivery and obstetrical emergency services.
