Embracing a Healthy Outcome For You and Your Baby!
"Sweet Sucess" is a St. Mary Perinatal Medicine Clinic program which assists the client in delivering a healthy baby, despite having diabetes during pregnancy. The program is designed to serve you and your unborn child. Clients are taught how to control their blood sugar level by practicing what they learn in the Sweet Success Program, which will help to decrease their risks.
We offer a full spectrum of prenatal services including testing, counseling, education and informational assistance. Our UCLA Perinatologists are highly trained specialists who work directly with Family Practice physicians and Obstetricians to help patients manage complicated pregnancies.
Most patients are referred to the Sweet Success Program for testing to assess the health of their unborn child. We understand that this can be a stressful and uncertain time, and our staff strives to create a comfortable and reassuring setting in which expectant parents can relax while the necessary procedures are performed. If it is determined that you have risk factors for complications, the clinic's staff will provide you with information and answer questions regarding what to expect.
Qualified counselors will assess your medical history and that of your partner, your lifestyle and potential exposure to any potentially hazardous substances. These questions are posed solely to ensure your safety and that of your child. Additional tests may be administered, including amniocentesis, non-stress tests and ultrasound all which are performed in the clinic.
