Women's Health

At Adams Memorial Hospital, we are committed to helping women live healthier lives. We offer a range of comprehensive health care services, wellness programs and support groups designed to meet your unique needs at every stage of life.

Women’s Health

From pregnancy to menopause, every stage of a woman’s life is unique and different, and each requires individualized health care. Women often put others’ needs before their own, but it is important for them to invest in their health and well-being with regular primary care visits and appointments with their OB-GYN and any necessary specialists. Do it for yourself and for those you care for. We provide full-spectrum OB-GYN services with compassion and excellence.

Adams’ Women’s Health specialists provide general gynecology services that include well-woman visits, birth control counseling and prescriptions, STD testing and standard screenings such as PAP smears and breast exams. Support for every stage of a woman’s life is available. This includes infertility evaluation, pregnancy care and menopause support.

Women with unusual symptoms, such as pelvic pain or abnormal bleeding, are evaluated and may receive an in-house ultrasound for further review. If there’s an issue that requires surgery, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids, our doctors offer the latest surgical techniques.

A woman’s chance of developing breast cancer is one in eight across her lifetime. Early detection of breast cancer with 3D mammography and/or breast ultrasound means that treatment can be started earlier. The Genius 3D Mammography allows doctors to examine breast tissue layer by layer, allowing fine details to be more visible. At Adams, we also provide prevention and education to provide the best possible care. Please call 260-724-2145, ext. 11047, to schedule.

Bone Density Testing

During a bone density exam with DXA, patients recline comfortably on a padded table while the DXA system scans two or more areas, usually the fracture prone hip and spine. Unlike typical X-ray machines, radiation exposure during bone density exams is extremely low. The entire process takes only minutes to complete, and it involves no injections or invasive procedures.

Adams Health is Here for You & Your Baby

When a new baby is arriving soon, it’s nice to know that the Adams Family Birthing Center is here for you. We offer everything you need from prenatal classes to labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum care, all in the same room. Our nurse navigator is also an important part of our women’s health team. She is specially trained to guide you throughout your pregnancy, and she provides support for the first 12 months of your baby’s life.

We’ve been delivering babies since 1923, and our exceptional nurses and providers are passionate and compassionate about what they do. It’s our goal not only to help bring your baby into the world, but also to support you and your baby long after birth. From helping you with breast-feeding techniques with our certified lactation consultant to finding a pediatrician, we are here to help.

Helpful Resources:

Many mothers want to know how much weight they should gain during pregnancy. Your weight gain during pregnancy is based on your body mass index (BMI) before pregnancy. BMI is a measure of body fat calculated from weight and height. Work with your health care provider on your weight gain goals at the beginning and regularly throughout your pregnancy.
