Gynecological Conditions & Services
Leaky tampons, underwire bras, walking in heels, the expectation to reproduce and gender equality - the list goes on. As women, we have a lot to worry about! Women are twice as likely as men to become clinically depressed1. It’s not just the long list of stressors that cause depression though; it’s unfortunately subpar support systems, inability to ask for help to fulfill our own needs and wants, and – the kicker – a lack of investment into our own healthcare.
It’s time to empower ourselves and other women in our lives to be proactive about women’s healthcare. To promote wellness and choice. To care for ourselves the same way we care for others.
As Women’s Health providers, we ask you – are you taking care of yourself the same way you take care of your partner, or children, pets or friends? When was the last time you had an annual checkup? Did your healthcare provider make you feel comfortable enough to ask questions? Were you able to express your concerns? Did you feel listened to?
We encourage you to take time to take care of YOU. Let us help you build your support system of experts and healthcare professionals so you can navigate through life with confidence.

Choosing a Provider Who is Right for You
We encourage you to explore your options when choosing a women’s health provider. This is an intimate journey and it’s important for you to seek out the OBGYN or midwife who can provide you with health care services that feel right for you.
Finding a provider who is supportive, and one with whom you can talk with honestly and openly, is one of the most important things you can do for your health. For the different ages and stages of your life - puberty to post-menopause, we will be there to help you maintain health and prevent illness.
