HealthCurrents Women's Health Issue

Inside this special issue
"During these uncertain times, you may find it more challenging than ever to make
your health, and the health of your family, a priority. However, keeping up with
scheduled visits, medications, and care plans can be the difference between routine
care and a more serious health condition down the road.

This special issue of HealthCurrents magazine covers many topics women
encounter when choosing to grow their family—whether it’s preparing for a birth,
staying healthy during pregnancy, or working through grief after a miscarriage.
Our team of providers at Spectrum Health Lakeland has decades of experience and
knowledge in gynecological, obstetrics, and newborn care. Your health—and the
health of your family—is our highest priority."

Karen Zienert, MD
Medical Director, Quality Obstetrics Services
