||Appointments every 1-2 weeks
In the San Francisco Health Network, pregnant women have choices about where and how they get their prenatal care.
Choices for how you get your care:
- All of our prenatal care sites offer traditional private visits with either a doctor or nurse practitioner. At Zuckerberg San Francisco General Womens’ Health Center, you can also choose to have prenatal care with a midwife.
- At Zuckerberg San Francisco General Women’s Health Center and Silver Avenue Health Center, we also offer CenteringPregnancy where you attend visits with a group of women due around the same time as you.
