Obstetrics and Women’s Health at CHCW.

Having a baby can be a very exciting time. Choosing the right clinic for your obstetric care is an important and personal decision. Our goal at CHCW is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care. We are dedicated the lifelong well-being of our patients, and believe every patient is unique and deserves individualized attention and care.

Family Medicine with Obstetrics

In addition to caring for you through your pregnancy and delivery, Family Medicine providers provide primary care for infants, children, and adults. We often care for multiple generations within a family. From preventive care and screenings, to managing illness, injuries, and chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, family medicine providers can provide a wide range of care.

We offer these services in the Yakima and Ellensburg areas.

Pregnancy Care

We strive to provide you with all the information you need to during this dynamic time!

Pregnancy will be a time of many changes to your body and your perception of you and your surrounding world. Please know that we are here to inform and support you through this time. Always feel comfortable that you can contact us for any questions or concerns that you may have during your pregnancy and after! We have compassionate and empathetic physicians waiting for you!

We Take Care of You AND Your Family

Our board-certified family physicians are committed to delivering exceptional care.

You’ll notice that many of our primary care team members’ credentials include the title of Family Medicine with Obstetrics. This means that this provider is trained in managing pregnancies and delivering babies, in addition to providing primary care for all ages. This gives our patients the option to choose a doctor who can care for them, their newborn, and their entire family.

Benefits of Family Medicine Obstetrics

Choosing your family doctor for your obstetric care ensures a smooth transition into prenatal care. There is no need for transfer of health records or time spent filling out new medical health history forms, and no new clinics. All of your cares can be completed at your regular clinic.

We offer the same standard of care as well as all recommended and optional testing as an OBGYN clinic. Once your baby is born, both you and your baby can continue to see your doctor going forward.

Our Obstetric providers work with normal and high-risk pregnancies of all levels. We will create a plan to meet your pregnancy needs. Our experienced, compassionate doctors deliver babies at Central Washington Family Medicine (CWFM) in Yakima, and Community Health of Central Washington in Ellensburg.

We will coordinate your schedule of visits and tests during your pregnancy.
