What it is

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) focus on all areas of women's health. Our expert team provides comprehensive health and wellness care supporting you throughout all life stages, including adolescence, family planning, pregnancy, menopause and post-menopause.

Obstetricians specialize in supporting women during prenatal, pregnancy, birth and postpartum depression. Gynecologists are surgeons specializing in female reproductive health from your first period to post-menopause. Certified nurse-midwives work closely with your care team to support you through labor, delivery and after childbirth.

Many of our providers practice both obstetrics and gynecology. If you start seeing us for your ongoing care, we’ll connect you to an integrated team of specialists for your women's health and OB/GYN needs.  

We’ll help you plan for pregnancy and make recommendations based on your current lifestyle and medications. During pregnancy, regular visits are scheduled to keep you and your baby healthy.

Obstetrics and gynecology care often focus on:

  • annual wellness visits: Pap smears, pelvic exams and breast screenings
  • adolescent gynecology (female health development)
  • sexual health
  • family planning options (birth control)
  • pre-conception counseling
  • fertility concerns
  • pregnancy (prenatal) care and childbirth
  • breastfeeding support
  • gynecologic surgeries and procedures, including minimally invasive and robotic surgeries
  • pelvic support challenges (prolapse)
  • period concerns
  • perimenopause and menopause issues
  • disease prevention (vaccines)
