Women's Health Services



La Clínica's Women's health services includes care of OB GYN concerns from adolescence through the elder years. These services are provided by OBGYN's, Family Practice Doctors, Certified Nurse Midwives, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners.

We have a large pregnancy care program and supplement our patients' prenatal visits with health education, nutrition and WIC, social work, and childbirth preparation classes. At our Alameda County sites we offer the option of "Centering Pregnancy" (group prenatal care) or traditional individual care. After birth, we take care of both the mother and child. We offer postpartum and newborn visits, family planning, breast feeding support and counseling. All of these services are provided in a supportive environment in the patient's own language whenever possible.
