In the early 1900’s cervical cancer was the number one cause of death in women. Medical science has come a long way since then and, while it still claims about 4,000 lives in America each year, cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable.

With flu activity increasing and family and friends planning gatherings for the holidays, now is the perfect time to get your flu vaccine. A flu vaccine doesn’t just protect you. By getting vaccinated you are protecting your family, friends, coworkers and people in your community that may be unable to get a flu vaccination. This is especially important if you have a child with asthma or an infant under the age of 6 months.

November is Prematurity Awareness Month and since delivering babies is what we do best, we wanted to shed some light on premature births in the United States. Preterm birth is when a baby is born before 37 weeks gestation. Statistics show that 1 in 10 babies will be born prematurely. Research also tells us that while we can certainly outline some of the contributing factors for preterm birth, many times, there is no known cause. This is why prenatal care is so vital to both the mother and the infant in the 40 weeks leading up to delivery.

From the moment you found out you were pregnant, you started protecting your developing baby. You might have changed the way you eat, started taking a prenatal vitamin, or researching the kind of car seat you’ll buy. But did you know that one of the best ways to start protecting your developing baby against serious diseases is by making sure you get the whooping cough (Tdap) and flu vaccines while you are pregnant?

Long before a woman becomes pregnant, she has a vision of what motherhood will look like. It is a thought that is filled with love, baby coos, cuddles, and enjoyment. Sure, they know it will be exhausting and sometimes even frustrating to be a new parent, but the warm fuzzy feelings they imagine always outweigh the bad. For some moms, this euphoric experience is very real and they fall right into their mother goose mode without a hiccup along the way. For others...

Osteoporosis in Women

May 16, 2016

Category:

Osteoporosis is a condition which affects primarily women over the age of 60. The disease can affect men and younger individuals, but when women experience menopause, the lack of estrogen dramatically affects our bone growth and women typically lose 20% of their bone mass 5-7 years after menopause. This is why it is important for women to understand the disease, how they can prevent it and how they can avoid painful fractures if they do suffer from osteoporosis.
