At A Woman’s View, our clinicians believe education is the key to empowerment, so we have compiled a myriad of resources for current and prospective patients, including quizzes, calculators, risk assessments and FAQs. This section also includes a health library full of articles specific to each of the four life stages of a woman: Young & On Your Way, Oh, Baby!, In Full Stride and Aging Gracefully.
For young women between adolescence and early adulthood, Young & On Your Way includes information on subjects like birth control, eating, exercise, managing stress and sexually transmitted diseases, among other things. This section was designed with a preventative, proactive approach in mind, so our teenage, college-age and twenty-somethings can establish healthy habits early, which will set them up for a lifetime of thoughtful choices and beneficial outcomes.
Oh, Baby! is the place for mommies-to-be, new mamas and experienced moms who are looking for the scoop on everything bambino – from prenatal care to pregnancy to delivery – as well as topics such as choosing a child care provider and finding the work-life balance. And if your kiddos are older, don’t fret! Oh, Baby! includes info pertaining to your school-age kiddos, tweens and teens, as well as content related to health issues you may be facing, such as depression, chronic fatigue or cluster headaches.
Is this perimenopause? Or full-on menopause? When will these hot flashes stop? For our patients in the prime of their lives, In Full Stride has the answers to these questions and so many more. With women living well into their 70s, 80s and beyond, it is important to not only learn about the bothersome symptoms associated with “the change of life,” but to understand how the risks of osteoporosis and heart disease increase as estrogen levels decline.
Aging Gracefully centers on the post-menopausal years, focusing on some topics from the other life stages, while providing helpful information around how to get your medications for less, how to take part in every medical decision and what to look for on over the counter labels. There are also articles on reconstruction surgery after breast cancer, hip replacement and life after loss – all subjects likely to affect you or someone you love during this time.
Remember, at A Woman’s View, we are committed to individualized care through each stage of a woman’s life. Please call us today to invite us to be part of your journey.
