General Holistic Health Care
In addition to caring for pregnant women, I have had extensive training in caring for common gynecological problems, and general ailments. For example, if you have symptoms of a urinary tract infection, whether you are pregnant or not, I can examine you, do the appropriate lab work, and prescribe the medication needed. Certified Nurse Midwives are Advanced Practice Nurses, and have prescriptive privileges. I can do your annual pap smear and physical exam, and any other physical exams required for your family. I can do well-baby care for the first year.
The following is a list of some of the common ailments I am qualified to treat and prescribe for:
- Contraception (birth control pills, depo, natural family planning, etc.)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Ear infections
- Sore throat/ Strep throat
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Vaginitis (BV, Yeast)
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Menopausal and peri-menopausal complaints
I have laboratory facilities in my office and can do most laboratory tests needed right there. I also have many years of experience and training in holistic care and will consider appropriate alternative herbal and nutritional remedies for your care if requested.
