OB/GYNs Provide Compassionate Care for Life’s Biggest Moments | Ascension

This article is sponsored by Ascension Wisconsin. Healthcare is a very personal decision and we are thrilled to be able to provide our audience with information related to options in our area.

As many parents know, an OB/GYN has the privilege of being uniquely positioned to provide compassionate health care at some of life’s most monumental moments. From those first stages of pregnancy to the life-altering experience of birth and then the specialized care that follow, the full spectrum of life can be encapsulated into a patient’s relationship with their OB/GYN. It’s crucial to a patient’s wellbeing for their OB/GYN to be compassionate and comprehensive in their care. We spoke with two physicians from Ascension Wisconsin about what drew them to obstetrics and gynecology in the first place as well as what patients should know to ensure they are getting the best experience possible.

  • What are the components to the pelvic exam and the general pelvic health review that you are checking on annually?
