Women’s Health

You can confidently look to our nurse practitioners and physicians for a full range of women’s health care from teens to senior women. Serving a rural community means providing services with a full scope, creating greater access for you and your family. The same provider you see can also see your children or other family members, an easy way to be family driven.

Pregnancy Services and Prenatal Care

Our providers and staff are here to help you and your baby on this special journey, 24/7. Our full service often begins with a pre-pregnancy examination, where we’ll work together to check your overall health and come up with a plan for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. Regular checkups focus on whole person health, which includes sound eating habits, exercise needs and other factors like weight gain.

Childbirth

Throughout pregnancy, you will see one of our family-practice physicians, who will focus what you and your baby need to have a safe labor and delivery. Our delivering physicians have privileges at the IU Health Hospital in Paoli, where your baby may be born. Moms have many options for flexible birth plans including support for natural labor or epidural.

Postpartum and Well-baby

We schedule a series of regular well-baby and well-mom checkups after delivery. Becoming a mother means big changes, and we want you and your baby to be healthy all the way through and beyond. Transitioning to pediatric care with your family provider at SICHC is easy.
