If you would like to do research on your own, we recommend looking into the Creighton Model Fertility Care System and its use of NaProTECHOLOGY.

Many patients at Novant Health Triad Obstetrics & Gynecology benefit from the services of a doula before, during and after labor. A birth doula supports a woman during labor, while a postpartum doula cares for both the mother and baby after birth. The Piedmont Area Doula Association can get you in touch with a doula who is right for you.
Whether it's planning for your delivery, packing for the hospital or asking questions after labor, Births & Beginnings can be a resource for information or support. Doula Lauren Rathbone often partners with Novant Health Triad Obstetrics & Gynecology to offer prenatal classes and then works with some of our patients through their labors and deliveries.
