Welcome to Riverside's First Steps: Your guide to information and resources during and after pregnancy
Riverside's First Steps and congratulations on your pregnancy.
At Riverside we deliver over 3,000 babies a year,
which gives us a lot of expertise and experience.
But what's equally important for you is that we never forget that each birth
is unique and highly personal.
So along with providing exceptional care, we work hard to make sure this
very special time in your life
— pregnancy, delivery and beyond — is positive and memorable
for you, your baby and your family.
No matter how you choose to get your First Steps newsletters,
there is a pocket in the back
of your First Steps book to keep all of your issues handy.
If you get the newsletter electronically,
print your copy out and store in the back pocket.
Preparing for Childbirth
Nature has a way of preparing your body for childbirth and we’ll help you with the rest.
For starters, if you haven’t chosen a doctor yet, we can help make your decision a lot easier.
Riverside (physicians) are responsive, supportive, family-centered care providers who will help
you approach this exciting time with a sense of confidence. Go to
and click on Doctors in the top navigation bar, under specialty select obstetrics.
There is also a complete listing of all the area physicians on page 60 of your First Steps book.
