We are please to announce a new affiliation and service we will be providing in the near future. We are working with a home health nursing company, Healthy Connections to provide emotional support and treatment to women with a high risk pregnancy on bed rest.  By helping with stress management, counseling, relaxation therapies, we will be an adjunct to their medical treatment. So, here is a little bit about Health Connections.

  • Healthy Connections is a provider of high-risk obstetrical homecare services for pregnant women in the Houston, Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth areas. Their company is committed to providing the highest quality homecare services to our pregnant patients. Through the use of our 24 Hour-a-Day/7 Day-a-Week Call Center, staffed by Registered Nurses with unparalleled experience in high-risk obstetrical care, Healthy Connections believes that we can help women and their unborn babies achieve the best possible pregnancy outcome without unnecessary hospital visits and expenses.

Their services include treatment for pre-term labor, hyperemesis gravidarum (excessive nausea & vomiting of pregnancy), pregnancy-induced hypertension, and gestational diabetes management.

We welcome this opportunity.
