Obstetrical Care

Obstetrical Care at OGOA

OGOA’s collaborative model of care offers expectant families a wide range of options for delivery. Our midwives work in partnership with our physicians to provide expectant families with healthy pregnancies and natural birth experiences.

We offer expectant mothers with three options of maternity care. Patients can choose a physician-only option; a midwife-only option, with physician back-up if and when necessary; or what we feel is the ultimate care a pregnant woman can receive, a collaborative model including care by both a midwife and physician team.

Our formula for offering exemplary care includes the availability of a midwife-obstetrician team for laboring patients with a safety net of 24 hour in-house anesthesiology and neonatal physicians at Community Medical Center. Our patients can have a midwife continually present throughout the labor process to offer labor management, support, and guidance for birth options.

In the hands of these highly skilled clinicians, OGOA has been able to maintain one of the lowest cesarean section rates in the state of New Jersey. For those women who have had a prior cesarean birth, we have one of the highest rates of successful vaginal birth after cesarean rates in the nation.

In addition, it’s comforting to know that as an affiliate of RWJBarnabas Health, our staff can facilitate referrals and collaboration with maternal fetal medicine experts at tertiary care centers for high risk pregnancies, advanced fetal testing, high-risk delivery and neonatal intensive care, if the need arises.
