Maternity Care

Download our Maternity Care Guide

Dr Chelsea Unruh and Dr. Catherine Talbot are Family Medicine physicians. Both have dedicated training in Obstetrics and provide care to pregnant women of all ages who are considered low risk. Low risk pregnancies include otherwise healthy women with singleton pregnancies (no twins). Unfortunately, at this time, we are not offering services if you have had a previous c-section or are planning a VBAC (Vaginal Birth after Cesarean Section) and recommend you establish with an OB/GYN.

All visits are done at our local Yelm office and we are affiliated with Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, for the delivery of your baby. Cesarean Sections are performed in conjunction with OBGYN doctors at St. Peter Hospital.

Drs. Unruh and Talbot will also take care of your baby while you are in the hospital if you plan to bring the baby to our office!
