Well-Woman Gynecology and Family Planning Services 2022-09-12T20:30:09-07:00


…The health of your unborn children begins with you.

If you’re like many women, your annual gynecological exam and pap smear can be frustrating and humiliating. You wait for the doctor wearing a paper gown in a cold room. The metal stirrups are awkward, and his exam is painful. Plus, you’ve been waiting all year to ask your doctor that burning question, but he is so harried, you hardly get the words out before he’s pulled out the speculum and is out the door.

Now imagine a visit with a midwife or nurse-practitioner. Her office is pleasant and inviting, her welcoming smile puts you at ease. Her exam is so gentle, before you realize it, it’s over. Her professional and warm manner makes you feel safe and respected. Your midwife or nurse-practitioner has plenty of time to answer your questions. She explains your options for birth control and family planning, she teaches you how to give yourself a breast exam, and encourages you to get to know your own body. You don’t feel at all embarrassed or shy. She encourages you to make informed decisions about your sexual health. You leave her office feeling empowered!

If you are planning on becoming pregnant soon, and would like to have a midwife-assisted birth, you can build rapport with a midwife beforehand. If you’ve recently given birth and need a family planning method, consider getting your next birth control consultation from a midwife or nurse-practitioner. Why not try one of these special ladies…
