Preventive Care

Women’s health centers aim to prevent disease and detect it early. Early diagnosis can distinguish between a life-threatening illness and one easily managed with medication. Preventive care includes screening for cancer, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, and providing vaccinations; procedures vary depending on each woman’s age, risk factors, and medical history.

Women’s health centers provide screenings and tests for breast and cervical cancer and sexually transmitted diseases, counseling, and immunization services in either a clinic setting or the office of an ob-gyn. Immunizations may also be provided; typically, vaccinations for childhood diseases, but others, such as the HPV vaccine, can be given preventively as part of care for cervical cancer prevention.

Women’s health centers offer more proactive services, including counseling for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and HIV, contraception services, and menopausal concerns. Such support is precious to young women at an increased risk of contracting an STD or STI.

Women’s health centers can also provide counseling on family planning, fertility and adoption issues, and education on healthy lifestyle choices, including nutrition, exercise, sleep habits, and stress management.

Women’s health centers can offer many types of treatment, ranging from gynecological procedures to breast cancer surgery. Women can find support at these facilities by utilizing advanced technology like laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgeries. Women’s health centers can also perform on-site procedures, saving patients time and money. Furthermore, they offer cosmetic procedures like ThermiVa and Endosee, which may not be widely available elsewhere; women’s health centers provide customized and comprehensive healthcare that may include services not commonly found elsewhere, such as nurse practitioners or ob-gyns.

Gynecological Issues

Women face unique health concerns that require them to receive regular screenings as recommended by their doctors and practitioners and to reach out when something feels amiss. Women’s health centers offer pelvic exams, pap smears, and breast exams to detect cancer at its earliest stage and treat it effectively.

Women’s health centers also provide other services beyond preventive care, including gynecological surgery and diagnosing conditions such as endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, uterine fibroids, and pelvic pain. Many of these conditions cause chronic pelvic discomfort affecting quality of life; to address them effectively, they often need medical and surgical interventions.

Women’s centers also specialize in diagnosing or treating menstrual disorders, urinary tract infections, and infertility – with experts available on staff to help address such problems and offer therapies such as antibiotics or hormone therapy as possible solutions.

The Center for Women’s Health & Human Rights exists to advance women’s global health and human rights through research, education, advocacy, and networking among scholars, activists, and institutions that focus on linking health with human rights.

Feminist health centers emerged during the 1970s as part of the women’s health movement, inspired by social movements of their time, in response to the medicalization of women’s bodies and to provide universal access to gynecological care regardless of economic status or insurance coverage.

Women’s centers should provide women with safe and supportive spaces to receive optimal OB/GYN care from professionals, including an OB/GYN who listens carefully to her concerns, understands her body, and treats her with kindness and dignity. Furthermore, this doctor should possess extensive knowledge of obstetrics and maternal medicine for optimal care delivery.

Prenatal Care

The Center for Women’s Health’s obstetricians provide unsurpassed obstetric care and are dedicated to ensuring the best outcome for their patients and babies. Their diverse team offers expertise from various fields; furthermore, they share a common philosophy that emphasizes incorporating all aspects of a woman’s life into her healthcare.

Prenatal appointments provide essential care during gestation for both mother and baby, with prenatal checks enabling doctors to spot early warning signs of potential issues before they escalate, helping reduce low birthweight babies and increase healthy pregnancies.

At the Center for Women’s Health in Overland Park, Kansas City, Leawood Prairie Village, and Olathe, women can receive exceptional medical care with a personal touch from Drs Traci (Hodes) Nauser, Tristan Fowler and Nurse Practitioner Kelsey Sellers, DNP APRN. From initial contact to follow-up visits, each woman’s concerns are addressed with thoughtfulness and empathy.

Gynecological health services provided by the Center for Women’s Health include routine pap tests, breast exams, and screening for sexually transmitted diseases that affect reproductive systems. Our gynecologists are specially trained to treat all women’s reproductive system issues, including infertility, fibroids, hormonal fluctuations, and menopause.

Maternal-fetal medicine specialists provide pregnancies that pose increased risks, such as those with prior cardiovascular or blood disease; gestational diabetes; multiple fetuses; carrying infants known to have congenital conditions like spina bifida; carrying multiples and carrying infants known to require multiple surgeries during gestation – or carrying infants who will later require genetic care following delivery. They can also coordinate any required fetal surgeries or neonatal care during pregnancy.

The Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology seeks to advance women’s health by initiating research, strengthening knowledge, and developing leaders for future leaders in medicine. Their efforts focus on the unique interactions among gender, biology, socioeconomic factors, and culture, which affect women’s well-being.

Postpartum Care

Women need regular care postpartum to ensure they’re healing appropriately and discuss any emotional changes, like grief and guilt, which are very stressful emotions for new mothers. Healthcare providers can assist them in taking appropriate steps. For example, having an unplanned pregnancy may create feelings of grief and guilt, which are beneficial in developing an action plan for addressing them.

After giving birth, healthcare providers can look for any signs of infection or issues caused by pregnancy, such as heavy bleeding post-birth, indicating retained placenta or uterine atony – potentially dangerous conditions that require immediate medical attention if left untreated.

Some women don’t receive the postpartum care they need, often due to not having access to healthcare providers or OB/Gyns or because their insurance coverage ends soon after giving birth. Others may be too exhausted to schedule appointments. Unfortunately, this can put them at risk of severe health problems such as high blood pressure.

Centers for Women’s Health can connect patients to healthcare providers in remote communities, like mobile units and home visiting services, extending postpartum care for mothers enrolled in Medicaid. Such initiatives have helped improve outcomes while decreasing disparities for women who require postpartum care.

Patients can find the care they require at a women’s center in a comfortable setting. For instance, many women need PAP smears and breast exams to screen for cancer in its early stages, which is more treatable if detected early. At such centers for women’s health, these procedures can be conducted by doctors who specialize in managing such sensitive situations, providing support and education as needed – making regular visits important so any complications can be detected quickly for treatment as soon as they arise. Birth control services, as well as family planning or abortion care, can all be available – providing them vital care services are all offered under one roof!
