Women's Health


Healthier women lead to healthier families. Work, chores, kids, managing the home, and caring for parents traditionally have taken priority over a woman’s health. Taking care of yourself first is a great example for your family to follow. Our Women’s Health Resources includes information for all aspects of women’s health:
• General and Preventive Care
• Reproductive Health and Fertility
• Pregnancy and Postpartum Care
• Self-care and Well-being
• Healthy Aging

Pregnancy and Postpartum Care


Congratulations! Now that you are pregnant you need to choose a doctor, nurse practitioner, or a certified nurse midwife who specializes in caring for women and their babies during pregnancy and childbirth. Ask your friends and coworkers, or your primary care doctor for recommendations, then use the MyCanopyHealth app or portal to find out who is accepting new patients. Find someone you like. Our exclusive referral program empowers you to see any Canopy doctor providing pregnancy care in any of our offices.

Healthy Aging

Aging affects each woman uniquely and in a variety of ways. As we age, levels of estrogen decrease. Some women don’t require any treatment, but for others, symptoms can be more severe. Many women experience mild symptoms that may be treated by lifestyle changes such as avoiding caffeine or carrying a portable fan. The severity of symptoms varies around the world and by race and ethnicity. In addition to decreasing estrogen levels, the body uses energy differently, fat cells change, and women may gain weight more quickly. You may experience changes in your bone or heart health, body shape, and composition, or physical function. These changes may be a normal part of aging rather than symptoms of conditions that can be managed with your doctor. See your doctor every year to discuss any changes you are experiencing.

• Abnormal bleeding
• Depression and other mental illness concerns
• Hot flashes, weight gain, itchy skin, brain fog, or any change that worries you
• Incontinence or bladder leakage
• Pain during sex
• Your family history
• Your risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes
