OB/GYN and Women's Health

From our Women's Wellness Day each spring, to our Health Coach Program for those with chronic diseases, to support groups for illnesses that disproportionately affect women--like fibromyalgia and breast cancer--area women have a wide range of resources for managing their health.

Start with your primary care provider (PCP). A PCP can be a family physician, nurse practitioner, internal medicine physician, or physician assistant.

Some women prefer the specialized training in women's health issues offered by a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) Midwife (CNM), or OB/GYN. These professionals can act as your PCP as well as your go-to for gynecologic surgeries, diagnosis, and treatment of pelvic floor disorders, vaginal or uterine prolapse, and a host of other disorders affecting women only.

When you're ready to start a family, your women's health provider can monitor your progress, provide education and nutritional support, and discuss birth-pain options with you. Our Birthplace provides a warm, modern environment in which to welcome your newest family member and it is staffed by skilled and caring nurses. The Birthplace also provides breastfeeding support, education, and connections to pediatricians to get your little one off to the best start in life.
