Providence Women’s Health Care’s First Annual Company Wide Picnic

Providence Women’s Health Care’s First Annual Company Wide Picnic

There was lots of food, music, laughs, games and fun during our first annual company wide picnics.  Our team and their families got a chance to relax and unwind from the daily hustles of the office and gather amongst food and drinks to energize and recharge. Dr. Shelley Dunson-Allen is no stranger to good moves as she hustled to The Cupid Shuffle. Nuria wasn’t catching babies this time…she was catching moves and took us back to the 80’s with a fierce electric slide.   Natalie and other team members were seen on the dance floor too. While serving our community is our passion and providing exceptional care for women and families is what we do, we also believe that a strong community is a great team of people who work to foster good will.  It was so much fun to see our providers cut loose and cut a rug during this event. A big Thank You to our office manager, Andrease Brooms for coordinating the event and Dwight Allen who cooked out a good meal for...

First Signs of Pregnancy

First Signs of Pregnancy

Identifying the Signs of Pregnancy Besides intuition or family members and friends noticing changes in your body and sense of being, there are physical signs of pregnancy that will let you know if you are indeed with child.

Most often, women tend to go along for weeks taking no notice to the physical signs that are happening within the first few weeks of conception. Prior to a missed period, hormones have gone through many changes which show in physical changes within the body. Nausea, also known as morning sickness can hit either day or night and can begin as early as three weeks after conception. Morning sickness can be experienced with or without vomiting while often associated with a high sensitivity to smells, some of which may not have been a bother to you. You may find yourself using the restroom more often due to increased urination. While these same hormonal changes are causing your digestive system to slow down, this can lead to constipation. Early on you may notice breasts are tender, swollen, sensitive or sore. Or, quite possibly your breasts may feel fuller and heavier. Have you been turned ­off by foods you once loved?
