Midwife Asya Portnaya, CM:

In some ways I feel as if midwifery found me, and not the other way around. While pursuing a profession in Nutrition Sciences, I found myself drawn to Women’s Health after spending some time at a birthing center in Brooklyn. I was deeply moved by the personal and humanistic model of care that was central to midwifery. From those early experiences I’ve grown into my role as a Certified Midwife…but felt most completed by the full circle of events that allowed me to birth my own two children naturally at the Brooklyn Birthing Center under the watchful eyes of my midwives. I have deep seated respect for pregnancy and childbirth, and am in awe of the maternal effort and intention that so lovingly goes into growing a family–I believe that midwives are fundamentally linked into this process, and my goal above all is to preserve safety and high quality of care while remaining true to the woman-centered model.

After completing a BS degree in Food and Nutrition from Brooklyn College, Asya went on to pursue a Master’s Degree in Midwifery at the State University of NY at Downstate, graduating in July of 2005. Asya is certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives and licensed by the State of New York. Her career began at a private MD/CM practice, where she provided full-scope midwifery care. After two years with this busy hospital-based practice, Asya joined the team at the Brooklyn Birthing Center full time. Asya and Dr. Mark first met while she was working at the out-of-hospital birthing center for which he functions as a back-up physician, and have been collaborating professionally ever since. As Dr. Mark’s practice continues to grow, he has turned to his colleagues for support, and has recently invited Asya to join him in providing well woman gynecological care, preconception counseling, prenatal care, care during labor and delivery as well as during the post-partum period.

What to Expect Regarding Obstetrical Care

During pregnancy, it is important that medical care is available at all times.

Schedule for Routine Prenatal Visits

Once a month until your 28th week of pregnancy
After 28 weeks, every two weeks until the 36th week
After 36 weeks, every week
If you go past your due date, you may need to come 2 times per week
You are likely to be induced around 41 weeks
If other medical issues are determined during your pregnancy, these may require additional visits, and early induction.

At each routine visit, your weight is checked as well as blood pressure and urine.  The physician or nurse practitioner will listen to fetal heart beat, check uterine size and discuss any problems or concerns.  Various screening and diagnostic testing will be addressed at certain time intervals during your prenatal visits. Should you have a question at any time during your pregnancy, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Screening and Diagnostic Testing>

Screening Tests:

Testing is available in pregnancy to screen for certain birth defects.  Below is information regarding currently available testing. 
Ultrasound is offered at approximately 20 weeks of the pregnancy to screen for physical defects in the fetus.  Examples of these include heart defects and spina bifida.  If there is a family history of a particular problem such as a heart defect, a targeted ultrasound of that body system may be offered. 
Various tests are available to screen for Down syndrome and Trisomy 18, chromosomal abnormalities that may occur in the fetus, associated with varying levels of mental retardation and physical defects.  Screening tests have the advantage of being non-invasive, meaning they pose no risk to the pregnancy in comparison to diagnostic testing, discussed later.  Screening tests assess your risk for a particular disorder, they do not diagnose.  These tests can be reassuring to couples who do not desire invasive testing.

Quad Screen, a blood test performed at approximately 16 weeks that assesses your baby’s risk for Down syndrome, Trisomy 18, neural tube defects and abdominal wall defects.  This test is less sensitive in detecting chromosomal abnormalities than the sequential screen.  However, it is usually covered by your insurance. 

Maternal Serum Alpha-fetoprotein test, performed between 15 and 22 weeks, screens only for neural tube defects and abdominal wall defects.  It does not give good information concerning chromosomal defects.  
            
These noninvasive tests described are available to mothers of all ages.  However, over the age of 37, the screening tests are unlikely to reduce your risk of a chromosomal abnormality much below your age related risk. 

Diagnostic Tests:

Diagnostic tests, such as  chorionic villi sampling and amniocentesis are over 99% accurate.  These tests will report your baby’s chromosomes, i.e. XX or XY, normal or abnormal.  The advantage of these tests is in their accuracy.  Their disadvantage is in that there is a small risk of miscarriage related to the procedure. This risk will be reviewed in detail by a Genetic Counselor prior to the test to aid you in making this decision.   Couples that choose this route are willing to absorb the small risk of procedure-related complications because this information is important to them.
None of these tests guarantee that your baby will not have a problem.  We are able to detect the majority of major and minor birth defects, but some are not identified prior to birth. 
A physician or nurse practitioner will review these options with you during your prenatal visits. Our office will also provide educational pamphlets on these tests so you and your partner or spouse can review after your visit. To review additional information regarding various testing options during your pregnancy visit mytestingoptions.com.

Delivery and Childbirth Classes

We perform our deliveries at the Maimonides Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital, and Flushing Hospital.  I will meet you at the Labor and Delivery Unit and work closely with the support staff at the hospital.  I am confident your birth experience will be personal and memorable.
Although childbirth classes are not mandatory, these classes can be beneficial to your total obstetrical experience.  These classes can help prepare you and your partner or labor coach for what happens during the birthing process. 

Cord Blood Banking

Cord blood banking provides the unique opportunity for parents to save the stem cells found in the blood of their newborn’s umbilical cord.  This blood remains in the umbilical cord after your baby has been delivered and the cord has been cut.  The collection procedure is of no risk to the mother and newborn.  Although the chance of use is still very low, the preservation of these stem cells allows families the benefit of having them available for future medical treatments.  We encourage you to review the educational material available at www.cordblood.com. A physician or nurse practitioner will discuss your decision with you prior to your expected delivery date.

Pregnancy Hotline

For answers regarding exposure to medications, chemicals, infections and environmental concerns that might pose a risk during pregnancy, call 1-800-733-4727.

 

What to Expect Regarding Gynecologic Care

Thank you for selecting our practice for your gynecologic care. I will meet with you during your periodic gyn checkup and other scheduled visits. Please keep in mind, however, in an emergency, your physician of choice may not be in the office. Should this occur, another physician or physician assistant in our group will be happy to see you. Be assured, in such circumstances he or she has access to your medical records and is able to provide you with personal, appropriate care. Our patients are important to us and you can always expect that your medical needs will be managed by compassionate and skilled professionals. During your preventive visit, I will review your medical history as well as the current guidelines and recommendations for various screening tests. Based on your age and personal medical history they will discuss the benefits of mammography, HPV screening tests, routine pap tests and bone density scans.

It is important to point out that, for optimum care, your gynecologist is no substitute for a primary care physician. You need both and I encourage you to establish a relationship with a general practitioner or internist. He or she is your best resource for non-gynecologic health issues. If you do not have a primary care physician, I will gladly provide the names of several qualified doctors in the area.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

The hallmark of our practice is minimally invasive procedures that prevent or reduce hospital interactions. With extensive training in operative hysteroscopy and minimally invasive procedures, we are expert at hysteroscopic approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic pathology. This includes patients who present with abnormal bleeding which may be related to polyps, fibroids, and neoplasms. For abnormal uterine bleeding we perform Thermachoice Intrauterine Balloon Ablation, which reduces abnormal and painful bleeding up to 90%. For permanent birth control we utilize Essure tubal occlusion device. These procedures offer an alternative to more traditional hospital methods of treatment, but are based on your personal medical history to safely qualify for office-based procedure. Since there are no incisions or extensive general anesthesia the recovery time is shorter and there is less post-procedure pain. Specific information regarding these procedures is provided in the list of patient education links below. Our physicians and PAs can discuss these options at your visit.

Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Permanent Birth Control Options

Minimally Invasive Surgery
We offer minimally invasive alternatives to those patients requiring hospital based gynecologic surgery. Prevalently laparoscopic procedures are used in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. Alternatives to classical hysterectomy include hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy and hysterectomy (up to 20 cm masses), all done through 3 or 4 small, 1cm incisions on the abdomen or ONE disappearing vertical intraumbilical incision. All these cutting edge approaches allow our patients to receive the best in diagnosis and treatment with minimal downtime from their work, families, and busy lives.
