Navigating healthcare takes a human touch.
Your Healthcare Advocate bridges the gap in women's healthcare to help ensure your best care.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum
We provide guidance to expecting parents and those seeking to get pregnant including preconception planning and infertility treatments. From personalized birth plans to understanding when a C-section is medically necessary, we advocate for you.
All of us want to live long, healthy lives. Attaining that goal requires having a lifelong health maintenance plan, which we will help you to create. Additionally, we will pay special attention to the relationship between your reproductive history and your heart health as new science and data indicates a strong linkage to your overall health that many providers are not currently tracking.
Ever feel like you leave your doctor’s appointment with more questions than answers? We can help you prepare a thorough list of questions before your doctor’s visit and can provide guidance on next steps after your visit.
Most people like to bring a trusted family member or friend with them when they go to the doctor. We can be that trusted person to help you get the most from your telehealth and in-person visits with thoroughly researched questions and expert guidance.
Helping you get unbiased, thoughtful, individualized healthcare advice in today’s complex medical systems. Providing advocacy for women’s health issues from teenage years throughout a women’s lifespan.
