Obstetrics (OB) Group Prenatal Care

Lee Health and Expectant Mothers: It takes a Village! 

The Cape Coral Lee Physician Group office offers a program for women in the community planning to deliver at the Cape Coral Hospital Birthing Center

Join our OB Group Prenatal Care sessions for education, support, and tips!

Motherhood can be an isolating time. That’s why we’d like to invite you to join a circle of support where you can receive excellent medical care with a group of women who understand the joys and challenges of pregnancy and beyond.

OB Group Prenatal Care

This program offers an alternate to the traditional pre-natal care model. You get the same medical care, with the added benefit of a community setting during evening hours. 

Expectant mothers will receive educational material during 11 unique sessions. Each session will feature a different topic with related material, discussion, and one-on-one consultation time with your obstetric provider to help you through this amazing journey in your life.

  • The Group OB program replaces your monthly OB visits.  This is designed for low-risk pre-natal care. If you need a more complex care plan, we will support you as determined between you and your provider.
  • You may require additional appointments for imaging, labs, and other tests, as needed.

This program can help foster a community, create bonds, and help secure better health for you and your child.
