Well Woman Care

Bay Area Birth Center provides women’s health services for women of all ages in the Houston area, similar to that of a gynecologist or family practitioner.

Annual exams

During a well woman annual exam, your midwife spends about 45 minutes to answer your questions and make recommendations for optimal health and nutrition. The fee includes an overall exam, blood pressure check, pelvic exam, pap smear and blood draw for CBC (complete blood count).

Bay Area Birth Center also provides comprehensive care to women through:

  • Family planning services: birth control pills, diaphragms, etc.
  • Testing, diagnosing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis, HIV)
  • Routine lab testing such as CBC, glucose, cholesterol checks, glucose, and thyroid testing.

Referrals and special services

Your midwife can provide referrals for mammograms, thermograms, ultrasounds, chiropractic care, advanced testing and other specialty services.
