January 21, 2022
Women in the Kansas City area have plenty of healthcare practitioners to choose from for women’s healthcare needs. So, how do you choose the one that has your best interests at heart?
We think you should add Women’s Health Associates to the top of your list. Schedule a consultation with us to take a look around, meet our team and get a feel for what we do here. We believe it’s essential that women feel completely comfortable with their OB/GYN, and we hope that’s how you’ll feel when you meet us.
Women’s Health Associates Celebrates Quality Healthcare, Service & Education
Our healthcare team is comprised entirely of women and for women. Our empowered and compassionate healthcare team is devoted to taking care of other women in all aspects of their reproductive care and overall well-being – from adolescence through the childbearing years and then into and beyond menopause.
We believe that our neck of the woods is a better place to be by focusing on women’s health through high-quality service and providing women with the information they need to make informed decisions.
Quality Healthcare at Women’s Health Associates
First and foremost, our team is dedicated to providing quality healthcare. When you visit the WHA, you don’t get the cursory once-over and a rushed appointment. Instead, you’ll spend time checking in with our friendly office staff, and from there, you’ll receive focused attention from our well-rounded team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and/or midwives – depending on your preferences or the reason for your office visit that day.
Preventative care is a cornerstone of quality care because it addresses whole-body health, preventing or catching potential health issues before they start. This is why we recommend visiting your OB/GYN or midwife at least once a year and that you observe their recommendations for routine pelvic exams, pap smears, and other screenings that are personalized to your age, medical history, and lifestyle.
In addition to general women’s healthcare, we also offer well-rounded prenatal, pregnancy, and postpartum care so you can enjoy a healthy and stress-free pregnancy, and a successful childbirth and delivery. Of course, we’re also staunch supporters of breastfeeding and will provide any level of support you need.
Down the road, we’ll be there to facilitate the journey as you make your way through perimenopause and menopause, and we’ll ease you through any hiccups that may occur along the way.
Our focus is on lifetime wellness, and we make it a point to provide quality, personalized care as your body’s needs change along the way.
Compassionate and personalized service
The services we provide or recommend are always offered with particular attention to your body’s needs, as well as what we feel will support your heart and soul.
Women’s bodies – and needs – change significantly from adolescence through the childbearing years (whether or not you choose to have children) and then again through menopause; WHA is here to help you navigate those changes as gracefully as possible.

Visiting Women’s Health Associates will show you why it’s so important to experience women’s care provided for women by women – it’s a more gentle and connected experience.
Education is empowerment
Once female reproductive and menopausal care was removed from women’s circles and into the medical arena, women were often kept in a shroud of mystery regarding anything pertaining to their bodies and reproductive health. This leads to confusion, miscommunication, and disconnection from one’s own body.
At WHA, we know that accurate information, education about treatment options, and a well-rounded understanding of your body is the key to feeling empowered and able to make the right decisions for yourself and your future.
We view each and every appointment with our patients as an opportunity to share the information we have so they can grow into a deeper appreciation, respect, and understanding of their body and its amazing abilities and processes.
Our health associates are highly educated, trained, and specially chosen – quite frankly – because of their extraordinary talents and personalities. We can’t wait to share who we are with you, and we look forward to celebrating your own unique spark.
