Having children is an important life experience for many women. That's why we do all we can to involve and inform the family throughout a pregnancy. We perform regular exams to help ensure the safety and well-being of both mother and child. Sonograms are performed in the comfort and convenience of our office so that any questions the family may have can be addressed immediately.

Birthing Choices & Hospital Privileges

At the Women's Center for Health, we believe in comfort, which translates into flexibility and doing what's best for a woman and her baby. From natural births to pain management, we provide the opportunities and encouragement to create a memorable birthing experience that will be treasured for a lifetime. A unique birth plan is created based on each woman's preferences and requirements and outlines the physician and delivery choice, directions for anesthesia if desired, and general delivery room instructions. We strongly believe the Best Choice for your delivery is to deliver at The Baby Place at Pekin Hospital. The Women's Center for Health can also accommodate high-risk pregnancies and our Doctors work closely with the High Risk specialists of OSF Saint Francis and Methodist.

Our advance practice nurse also provides well-woman gynecological care, including breast exams, Pap smears and family planning, and other primary care issues for women.

Breast-feeding Consultation

Delivering a baby is only the beginning of a healthy, happy mother/child experience. Once the baby is born, our Lactation Consultant, who is certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultants, is available to help women to breast-feed their babies. Their assistance helps make a more comfortable, pleasurable experience that results in better bonding between mother and child.
