We are a collaborative Bay Area practice of a certified nurse midwife and an OBGYN physician committed to serving the obstetrical and gynecological needs of women across their lifespan.
Our providers support pregnancy and birth as normal events by minimizing technological interventions, while our physician specializes in care for the more complex medical situations that may arise.
The midwifery model of care includes providing well woman care that is comprehensive and emphasizes education.
We strive to offer gentle, personal care that is family centered, culturally respectful, and supports the informed decision making of each woman.
To our families and patients: As of September 27th, I will be on maternity leave. My husband and I are expecting our first child, and are very excited to embark on this journey! At this time I do not have a return date; we are going to see how things go with our new baby. I am so thankful for all the wonderful women, families, and babies that I have had the opportunity to meet and work with. Thank you! - Kay Thanawala, CNM

Fit for Two
Healthy eating & physical activity across your lifespan
Eating well can help you have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy newborn. Being physically active may help you have a more comfortable 9 months and an easier delivery. The Weight-control Information Network has put together a set of ideas and tips to improve your eating plan and become more physically active before, during, and after your pregnancy. Make changes now, and be a healthy example for your family for a lifetime.
How many calories should I eat?
Eating a variety of foods that provide enough calories helps you and your baby gain the proper amount of weight. During the first 3 months of your pregnancy, you do not need to change the number of calories you get from the foods you eat. Normal-weight women need an extra 300 calories each day during the last 6 months of pregnancy. This totals about 1,900 to 2,500 calories a day. If you were underweight, overweight, or obese before you became pregnant, or if you are pregnant with more than one baby, you may need a different number of calories. Talk to us about how much weight you should gain and how many calories you need.
