This cautionary tale told through an experiment that clearly shows how quickly and widely junk science can be spread. Many times, such things are harmless, other times they lead to fads, and too often they can do the opposite of what they advertise, or worse, cause harm.

Pregnancy loss is a dimension of motherhood that is often avoided and overlooked, as this article illustrates. Largely because of this same phenomenon, women and families frequently do not receive adequate support or information regarding their options when they are experiencing a miscarriage. There is a robust evidence base that, barring a few conditions or circumstances, women should be counseled on and able to choose whether to watch-and-wait for the miscarriage to happen on its own, take a medication to accelerate this process at home, or to be able to have a procedure in an office setting. Very few situations actually require a procedure (often called a D&C) in the operating room, but this is the norm. The other 3 safe options permit presence of support persons, offer elements of control, and are more affordable. Research has shown women are more satisfied when they are able to choose the best method for them.

With Radiance Women's Wellness, you can experience the midwifery model of care whether or not you are pregnant or seeking pregnancy. Tara Cardinal, CNM, ARNP, offers women's health and wellness care across the lifespan. She focuses on women's health care in general and not specifically on attending births. In addition to routine wellness exams, family planning or problem visits (menstrual irregularities, infections, etc.), she provides care in pregnancy, postpartum and lactation.

Sometimes women who choose Radiance Women's Wellness for prenatal care do not know what type of healthcare provider or birth setting they would prefer but they desire to initiate prenatal care early. Other times, they plan to move or relocate prior to giving birth and will need to change care providers anyhow. Others receive care from a licensed midwife, but need medications in pregnancy or the postpartum period. Examples include those experiencing a urinary tract infection in pregnancy, a breast infection in the postpartum period or those needing family planning services such as an IUD.

You can learn more about why you should choose a midwife for your well-woman care at Our Moment of Truth. The midwifery model of care is inherently woman-centered and you can experience it even if you are not desiring pregnancy. Visit today to learn more and to schedule an appointment or call (206) 660-1680!
