Well Woman ExamFor women in all stages of life, Special Beginnings offers health and wellness care beyond pregnancy, new mothers, and women who plan to become pregnant.

Many women choose certified nurse-midwives for their Well Woman health care throughout all of their life stages — not just pregnancy and birth. At Special Beginnings, we believe in a holistic approach to your health and wellness.

We offer Annual Well Woman Exams to empower you and help you feel confident and in control of your own health care.

Our certified nurse-midwives provide high-quality health care for women throughout each life stage. We invite you to visit one of our certified nurse-midwives for your Annual Well Woman Care at Special Beginnings.

What to Expect During Your Well Woman Exam

During your examination, our certified nurse-midwife (CNM) will take a complete family and personal medical history, and give you a thorough and gentle examination, including:

  • full physical with breast exam
  • pelvic exam
  • pap smear, if needed

We encourage you to ask questions, and your CNM will allow plenty of time to provide answers. These exams are a perfect time for you to discuss any health concerns you may have, including:

  • safe sex practices
  • birth control counseling
  • prescriptions

Should any concerns or conditions require more specific attention or observation, your CNM will refer you to a gynecologist or other specialists as needed.

Teen’s First Gynecological Exam

A certified nurse-midwife is ideal for a young woman’s first gynecological experience.

If you are the mother of a teenage daughter, we encourage you to talk with her about the importance of her health care at every life stage. Our certified nurse-midwives provide patient and gentle care, and allow plenty of time to answer questions.

If you are a teenage girl in search of the right health care provider for you, we invite you to visit one of the certified nurse-midwives here at Special Beginnings. The exam is gentle and moves at your own pace. It also allows plenty of time to address any concerns or answer any questions that you may have about your health and your changing body.
