Care across your lifespan
Well gynecology is provided by nurse-midwives in a variety of settings. Midwives bring a unique perspective to well gynecologic care from menarche ( the first period) through menopause ( after your last period). A person’s gynecologic health is tied to other health and lifestyle choices. Midwives know this and provide individualized care supporting a person’s sexual, reproductive, emotional, and physical health aims, goals and choices. Midwives are inclusive and sensitive to a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity. Midwives are able to provide STI screening, prescriptions, and services for birth control methods, abortion care, sexual and reproductive education, health education around nutrition and healthy life choices; pap smears and follow-up; routine blood pressure, cholesterol, thyroid, mammogram, colonoscopy and osteoporosis screening, and other primary care screening and treatments. Nurse-Midwives are with women for a life-time.
