a wellness-based approach to your healthcare.
Wellness and holistic care have become buzzwords. But how are these things different from plain old “health” and “health care?”
Health is the absence of disease. It involves health care like blood-pressure checks and screening tests, such as pap smears. And we do all those things at Baby+Company. They’re important!
But our well-woman care goes a step further – make that many steps!
We take time to consider your whole self. We talk about all the parts of your life that affect how you feel from day to day. The goal is to help you find ways to make improvements that lead to your best possible physical and emotional wellbeing. And that’s what wellness/holistic care is all about.
Your annual well-woman visit is a full hour, so we can explore:
• your eating and exercise habits
• stress in your life and how you manage it
• the information and support you need to make changes, including things like quitting smoking ,weight loss, birth control, and fertility issues
• a plan so you can move toward the goals you set for yourself
Yes, we call ourselves Baby+Company, but we’re about much more than having babies. We offer a range of women’s healthcare across a woman’s lifespan from infertility counseling; to annual exams and birth control prescription. We’re here to help you find your path to a lifetime of healthy choices.
Pre-pregnancy care: It matters
Every woman knows that prenatal care is important to a healthy pregnancy. But researchers have discovered there are many ways to prevent pregnancy problems before the pregnancy even begins. Good nutrition, physical fitness, and having the tools and support to manage stress are the foundation for lifelong health. An investment in these before pregnancy can multiply the impact because they are good for you and your future baby. That’s why we developed Well + Prepared an individualized pre-pregnancy nutrition and wellness program.
Built on a coaching relationship
The heart of the Well + Prepared program is your one-on-one relationship with a health coach. At your first visit you will meet with a health coach and a midwife to assess your whole health and lifestyle, help you set wellness goals, and address any health concerns before pregnancy. Then, you and your health coach will meet regularly to help you achieve your goals, and to build your healthy foundation for pregnancy. Focusing on your needs and goals, your coach will put together a plan from program components including:
- setting and reaching goals by getting informed and building on your strengths
- nutrition for conception and a healthy pregnancy
- self-care and mindfulness
- understanding your cycle and fertility
- creating a physical fitness plan you can stick to
- dealing with cravings
- strengthening your relationship
- building community and growing your support network
- understanding maternity care and fertility options
- preparing for pregnancy on a budget
Our goal is for every person we care for to be well + prepared for a healthy pregnancy.
Technology to keep you connected, informed, and on track
Throughout your program, you will have access to all of the notes from your health coach and midwife in your electronic health record, along with a library of online resources you can trust. You can also reach your coach or midwife via secure email through the system. Your health coach will introduce you to other apps and tools to track your progress and keep you motivated.
Workshops and education programs
In addition to one-on-one visits and your education library, Baby+Company offers a growing menu of workshops, classes, and online programs focused on pre-pregnancy health and wellbeing. Explore our calendar of classes and events in nutrition, yoga and fitness, fertility awareness, and even financial planning and budgeting.

more care, less cost
We’re all about bringing more health and wellness to more women. It’s what gets us going every morning – that and maybe a little coffee.
We seriously do not want cost to be an obstacle to your care.
We accept all major insurance plans. If you’re unsure about your insurance coverage, we’ll help you figure out your out-of-pocket costs.
If you choose to pay yourself, a yearly well-woman visit is only $70 for an hour of personal attention, plus any lab or test fees. And the benefits are likely to last at least a year…if not a lifetime.
