Information about OB/GYN & Women’s Health
Care for women of all ages
Our OB/GYN providers support women through all phases of their lives: They help adolescents develop good health habits and learn how to protect themselves from unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. When patients decide to start families, they’re there through pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. As patients transition to menopause and beyond, our providers help them manage their changing health.
Our obstetricians are all board certified or board eligible and are trained in a variety of surgical procedures, including abdominal surgery and minimally invasive vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic techniques. We perform same-day surgeries in our ambulatory surgery center at our 87th Avenue location.
Personalized support for childbirth and women’s health
Within the OB/GYN department, our certified nurse midwives provide focused, individualized care during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as basic gynecologic services. They perform water births at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center and Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center. All of our midwives are supported by our physicians, and work together with them to provide the best outcomes for patients.
Our midwives also lead our CenteringPregnancy program, where women in similar stages of pregnancy meet together periodically as a group. During the meetings, mothers learn about pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care together, and build a community of support. Midwives guide the conversations and provide necessary prenatal care within these sessions.
