Well Woman Care at a Birth Center
When we say that Charleston Birth Place is here to take care of you throughout your whole LIFE, we mean it. As Nurse-Midwives we are able to offer a full range of women’s health services, including well-woman care! Along with educating and empowering women throughout their pregnancy journeys, we also extend those services to overall wellness needs. Our goal is to always provide women with excellent choices in pregnancy and women’s health care that is respectful and evidence-based.
Well-woman care is synonymous with your regular health check-up visits that you would do with a GYN. Appointments consist of full checkups and preventative care for your body. The Midwives Model of Care is a fundamentally different approach to care than contemporary obstetrics. It is uniquely nurturing, hands-on, and empowering. This model is what makes seeing a Nurse-Midwife for your health care different than what you might have previously experienced before.
At Charleston Birth Place, we believe that a woman’s health and medical care is a partnership between her and her health care provider, and we treat each appointment as such. It is our responsibility to provide excellence in her care and sensitivity to her concerns and needs. We also believe that her health is her own responsibility and expect her to communicate with us and participate in decision-making. Our clients are listened to and treated with respect, dignity, and assurance of confidentiality. In short, we offer women choices and give them a voice in their care.
