"The most important thing an expecting mother can do is choose the right provider to guide her through pregnancy. Because birthing plans and hospital walls won’t guide her; people with the experience and whose agenda is completely aligned with hers will."
~ Dr. Yaakov Abdelhak

Personal Care

Unlike other clinics, we don’t work on volume. We take the time to get to know you and provide warm, personalized care. At Maternal Resources, you become an extension of our family.

No need to book a separate appointment for your ultrasound. At every appointment, we conduct ultrasounds, including an advanced level 2 scan at about 20 weeks, to continuously monitor your baby's well-being.

Integrative Care

Our skilled midwives offer additional personalized care and support. Additionally, we always involve your partner and work to create a customized plan for your overall mental and physical well-being.

Specialization in High-Risk Obstetrics

We specialize in maternal-fetal medicine (MFM). Our doctors have years of experience handling the most complex of pregnancies including vaginal births after cesarean section (VBAC), vaginal breech deliveries, and twin vaginal deliveries.

Our Services

Complete Pregnancy Care

Our comprehensive prenatal care encompasses every aspect of your pregnancy from conception to birth. With regular evaluations, ultrasounds, and tests, we ensure both you and your baby thrive. For low-risk pregnancies, our team performs monthly checkups until the end of the second trimester, twice a month from weeks 28 to 36, and weekly until delivery.

High-Risk Pregnancy (Maternal Fetal Medicine)

Distinguished from regular obstetricians, our Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists at Maternal Resources possess advanced expertise in managing high-risk pregnancies such as vaginal births after cesarean section (VBAC), vaginal breech deliveries, vaginal twin deliveries, and pregnancy after the age of 35, ensuring safety and well-being for both mother and baby. 


We offer in-house sonograms at every visit, utilizing 2D, 3D, and 4D scans for early detection of potential concerns. Our skilled technicians perform anatomy scans/level 2 ultrasounds and fetal echocardiograms to ensure your baby’s development and heart health are optimal.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)

What is a VBAC?

We specialize in vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). We believe any woman who desires the benefits of vaginal birth like reduced infection risk, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery should have the chance to access one. With exceptionally high VBAC success rates our dedicated prenatal care and delivery management help more women experience the advantages of vaginal birth.

Fertility Support

We empower women starting families later in life with dedicated fertility expertise. Our compassionate team helps navigate the unique challenges of advanced maternal age, providing personalized solutions and unwavering support on the path to parenthood.


We emphasize women’s health by offering personalized gynecological services tailored to each life stage, ensuring optimal well-being. Our well-woman exams are a cornerstone of preventive care in women’s medicine, encompassing general health screenings, cancer screenings, vaccinations, and addressing any other concerns regarding women’s health, all while providing guidance and tailored treatments.

Genetic Screening

We offer genetic screening to provide valuable insights for parents concerned about potential genetic abnormalities or conditions. These tests analyze parents’ or babies’ genes, chromosomes, and key protein development to help you plan and prepare for the future. Screening options include preconception tests for potential inherited conditions, prenatal tests for chromosomal disorders, and newborn screenings for postnatal complications.
