The Willow Midwives’ Approach


We envision your entry to care with us as an opportunity to learn and improve your own health. The services we offer at Willow Midwives are a reflection of our level of education, our training and experience and our perspective as midwives. With you as the leader, we offer our time and ability to listen, our beautiful space for your comfort and an approach that is welcoming and respectful while you navigate the system of health care and offer you our care.

We believe every woman deserves a midwife and we strive in policy and in practice for a system where midwifery is the standard for prenatal and birth care.

Call us today to schedule your annual exam: 612-345-5920!


The purpose of an annual exam is to monitor your overall well-being, to provide preventative screenings and education and to renew maintenance medications and review the use of supplements. When these exams are scheduled yearly, an ongoing record of your gynecologic health needs, pap testing, mammograms and other recommended screenings are kept in one location.  Finding appropriate referrals for you is something we value.

We value conducting physical exams in a way that makes our clients feel comfortable and less stressed.

Our annual exams are centered on:

  • Privacy: With a room divider screen set up in our exam rooms, you can change your clothes without any worries about privacy. We give you ample time to change and never enter a room without knocking first.
  • Comfort: Our massage tables are a far cry from the exam tables you may be used to. Each one is covered in real fabric and slightly warm, (so you can say goodbye to that crinkly tissue paper), and keeps you comfortablen throughout the exam. Our exams are performed without foot rests (NO stirrups!)
  • Trust: We stay in close communication with you as we progress through the exam. You’ll never have to wonder about what is coming next.


We encourage our clients to come to an annual exam prepared with questions and concerns so we can better attend to individual needs. We aim to leave you feeling empowered and able to manage your health and navigate the wider health care system.
