Garrison Women's Health, 770 Central Avenue #16, Dover
Get to know our wonderful team of midwives at this month's Meet the Midwives event! Open to both current and prospective patients. This casual gathering will give you the opportunity to hear about what midwives do and ask any questions you may have about their work. As the first practice in New Hampshire to offer midwife services, Garrison Women's Health has the experience and history to showcase the fantastic services midwives can offer. During the event, attendees will also be given a tour of one of our latest pregnancy resources, the Nurture Nook. In this tranquil space, any OB patient can drop in Monday through Friday (no appointment required) to spend time on her own connecting with her baby, listening to his/her heart rate, taking fetal measurements, and monitoring her own blood pressure. Attendees will also learn more about our various models of prenatal care. Whether you prefer our traditional model or Essential Eight Program, we are here to give you choices, educate you on your options, and empower you for the healthiest, happiest pregnancy possible. *There is no medical provider in this space (no nurse, midwife, or doctor), so it does not substitute for a scheduled prenatal visit.  Register Here
