Gynecology and Well-Woman Care

Certified Nurse Midwives not only attend to pregnancy and childbirth, they can also offer a full scope of well-woman care for women in all stages of life- from adolescence to menopause and beyond. It is a time that can be focused on a woman’s individual needs with open, educational discussions around her personal health history, values and concerns.

Well-woman care from a midwife includes:

  • Annual gynecology exams
  • Pap smears
  • Breast exams
  • Pelvic exams
  • Menopausal care
  • Contraceptive counseling
  • General wellness and female health issues
  • Natural family planning

Well-woman care is important during every phase of a woman’s life. With a focus on education and preventative health care for a woman’s individual needs, midwives can empower women to make the best decisions about their health care options in order to achieve their optimal health.
