Prenatal Care

Up to the third trimester patients are seen for prenatal appointments every 4 weeks in our Orange, Irvine or Santa Ana offices.  Third trimester office visits are scheduled every 2-3 weeks, and during the last month once a week. However, each patient receives individualized care and the schedule can vary on case by case basis. 


Dr Akerman, Dr Lao, Midwife Vicki and Midwife Shayna have OBGYN privileges at St Joseph Hospital  (Orange, CA), HOAG (Newport Beach, CA), Hoag Hospital Irvine Birthing Suites (Irvine, CA)  and OCGMC (Santa Ana, CA). 


The weeks after birth are very important for patients and their infant.

Patients are seen at least once after they deliver: 2 weeks after c-section; 6 weeks after vaginal delivery -visits are tailored to patients' needs.

At our OBGYN office, our pregnancy providers focus on physical recovery, emotional assessment and contraception as part of these important visits. 

Our certified CPSP (Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program) specialists will also accompany and advise patients during their prenatal and post partum care.
