Exciting news from Women's Health Care

Since opening its doors more than 30 years ago, Women's Health Care (WHC) has become one of the largest OB/GYN practices to serve the North Shore, Merrimack Valley and southern New Hampshire border towns. 

Moving to Middleton! WHC relocated one of its satellite offices from Georgetown to  Middleton. T he new location, adjacent to Middleton Family Medicine, opened to patients on February 1, 2017. Dr. Mary Chang and Dr. Andrea Rollins now provide OB/GYN services at the new location every Thursday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. The Middleton office also has on-site ultrasound capabilities. It is conveniently located at 147 South Main St., Suite B, off of Route 114.
 
Clinical affiliation brings gynecologic oncology to Newburyport. Physicians from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Gynecologic Oncology program now collaborate with Women's Health Care to treat women with uterine, cervical and other gynecological cancers right here in our community. This means women don't have to travel into Boston for this specialty care. 

To schedule an appointment with WHC call (978) 556-0100 and ask for the office of your choice. Visit www.whcobgyn.org to learn more.

Expanded women's health services
AJH continues to introduce new programs and services and find new ways to offer more specialized and targeted care for women.

Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation at AJH is now working with breast cancer patients to increase awareness and education to the benefits of physical therapy post mastectomy. The physical therapy program has therapists certified in lymphedema - most often offered to patients who have had mastectomy as a result of breast cancer.

New Alternative to pain management during labor & delivery : the Birth Center and Neonatal Care Center now offers nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) as an option for pain management during labor and delivery. This method, which is a traditional way to manage pain, offers mothers a fast-acting and safe alternative that does not affect the normal progression of labor. It is a desirable option for women who may struggle with anxiety, have a fear of needles or prefer to avoid strong pain medications.
