Women's Health Care Services 

 

Bothwell Regional Health Center understands the importance of providing women with specialized care in a comfortable and private setting. Specialists in women’s health provide care for women during all phases of their lives. Bothwell’s team of physicians provides comprehensive obstetric and gynecological services including pregnancy care, infertility, menopause, incontinence, annual well women exams, disease screening and family planning.

 

Bothwell OB/GYN physicians work closely with other Bothwell and community physicians to provide the best care for their patients. Our physicians focus on treating each patient for their individual needs, whether a patient is pregnant for the first time or dealing with menopause. They develop relationships with patients and work to offer the best care for each one.

 

Bothwell Regional Health Center women’s health care physicians also offer minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery with a lower risk of infection, less scarring, decreased blood loss and reduced postoperative pain. Gynecologic surgery can help treat a number of ailments including, uterine fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, endometriosis, cervical incompetence and ovarian cysts.  

 

Hospital Nursery

The medical team at Bothwell Regional Health Center knows the importance of keeping moms and their newborns together by providing rooming-in care. Rooming-in care encourages faster bonding, easier breastfeeding, better preparation for home, and the same experienced nurse caring for mom and baby, all while providing advanced-care. Nurses in our nursery are specially trained to care for premature newborns  of at least 32-weeks’ gestation and full-term newborns with breathing difficulties, jaundice or other medical conditions.

Obstetrics

Having a new baby is a joyous time, and Bothwell is honored to share in that momentous occasion. The specially trained staff in our Obstetrics Department provides the care and support new parents need as they welcome additions to their family. 

Our Women’s Health Unit is now more comfortable and appealing to new families and boasts four large labor-delivery-recovery rooms along with 4 newly remodeled larger family friendly post-partum rooms.

Whether your delivery is a natural process or a Cesarean section, your first child or your fifth, our

expert nurses and medical providers are with you every step of the way. To help your family bond more quickly, we encourage babies to stay in the room with Mom. This mother-baby care plan helps you bond more quickly, so you learn more about your baby's feeding cues, feel more comfortable about breastfeeding and are more confident when you and your baby go home. You also will be cared for by a nurse team so there's better communication and education for you.
