Pregnancy Education


SSWC providers are committed to patient education.  This website is a testament to that, but beyond the written word, we strive to verbally keep our patients informed of their options and encourage them to seek other sources of information on a topic if they wish.

We have numerous pamphlets on a wide variety of women's health issues and will be happy to provide you with educational material pertinent to your particular situation.

If you are an internet surfer, there are two sites we recommend for reliable information on topics concerning women's healthcare. The ACOG site has brochures available for viewing.
