Midwife Providers

Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are licensed health care providers educated in nursing and midwifery. Certified midwives (CMs) are licensed health care providers educated in midwifery. CNMs and CMs have graduated from college; they have passed a national examination; and they have a license to practice midwifery from the state they live in. Most of the midwives in the United States are CNMs or CMs. The midwifery practice at Westside Women’s Care was started in 1994, since then the midwives have delivered over 15,000 babies.

Prenatal Care

The doctors and midwives at Westside Women’s Care can help you plan the experience you want for your delivery by Cesarean Section. Creating a comfortable and relaxing environment that is less surgical/clinical is our focus. Also known as a “gentle C-section” we provide for delayed cord-clamping when possible, skin-to-skin contact between mom and baby where you will be able to hold, touch, and comfort your newborn. You can choose your own music that is special to you and your family. Once your baby has been checked by our pediatric nursing staff, you can breastfeed when your baby is ready.

Ultrasound

Westside Women’s Care offers an array of obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound services provided on site for your convenience. Our sonographers are ARDMS, board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. All of our equipment is state of the art, providing immediate results to our providers that can be discussed with you and your family.

BioTe

Are you suffering from hormone imbalance symptoms, such as lack of energy, trouble sleeping, hot flashes or decreased libido? BioTE is our newest edition of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for both women and men addressing hormone imbalances. From testing your hormone levels, our providers will dose a customized amount of testosterone and/ or estradiol which come in the form of small pellets. The pellets are inserted through a small incision in the upper buttock area, and the procedure is repeated every three to four months for women and four to six months for men. We also carry the BioTE nutraceutical line that includes a probiotic, DIM, vitamins A, D and K, and more to ensure you’re receiving the most benefits from your BioTE! For more information, visit www.biotemedical.com.

Do you suffer from heavy bleeding?

Does your menstrual cycle seem abnormally long or heavy? Are you afraid of leaking through a pad or tampon? Have you been diagnosed with anemia from blood loss? If so, you may have menorrhagia (pronounced: men-o-rahj-ah).

Menorrhagia is defined as unusually heavy or long-lasting menstrual periods. It occurs in 1 out of every 5 women. If you believe that you might have excessive menstrual bleeding, speak with a doctor after exploring this site to learn more about your treatment options for heavy periods.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.

With da Vinci Surgery, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.

At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments. For more information on this topic, please visit www.davincisurgery.com

Novasure procedure:

The NovaSure procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds and only needs to be performed once to lighten or stop your periods. No pretreatment drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital or in your doctor’s office.

Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day. More information can be found at www.novasure.com

What Our Patients Say

Reviews Of Westside Women's Care

The complete care given to me and also shown to me by the nurses, doctors and staff at Westside Women’s Care is unparalleled to anywhere I've ever been. Women’s health care is extremely complex physically as well as mentally. I came to Westside Women’s Care as a new patient in March. My health issues were weighing heavy on me and had a few bad experiences with other health professionals. I had new concerns for my OBGYN as well as all of prior chronic diagnoses for her to take into consideration and accommodate. I was at a crossroads and needed someone to help me. If it weren’t for Dr. Steinberg I would have given up. All it takes is for someone to listen and actually hear you to get you the right help. Thank you so much for being compassionate enough to make my ENTIRE HEALTH your priority

Molly M

Had a successful ECV (external cephalic version) to turn my breech baby head down.  Dr. Steinberg completed my baby's turn in under a minute at Lutheran.  I will be forever grateful to avoid a scheduled cesarean and have vaginal birth for the benefit of my baby and myself!  Thanks Dr. Steinberg!

I’ve had several babies with Westside and have worked with a lot of the staff. Dr. Minton is an amazing OB/GYN. I had the opportunity to work with both Drs. and Midwives this last pregnancy and it was a great experience. Dr. Minton is smart, kind, and very knowledgeable. He is chill and has a funny dry sense of humor. He addressed everything that came up during my pregnancies with unparalleled expertise. I felt like my questions & input were always welcomed. He was kind to our children when they accompanied me on occasion to prenatal visits. He’s the type of Dr. that after a long day of seeing patients & performing surgery, went out of his way just to stop by to meet the baby and check on us, simply because that’s the kind of person he is. At my follow-up visit we discussed health, nutrition, and all of my medical questions were thoroughly addressed. With Dr. Minton, you can expect to receive the best care available from a great person & a high quality medical professional. The practice as a whole is top notch. Jules is an awesome midwife and other staff like Alexis in labs and Melissa in ultrasound are fantastic as well. You truly can’t go wrong here - I highly recommend Westside Women’s Care in general and Dr. Minton specifically

Melissa M

We had a wonderful experience at Westside for the birth of our first child.  From the very first visit through delivery, the midwives took such good care of us.  They guided us when we needed it, answered our questions and respected our wishes. We could not have asked for a more caring and compassionate team

Kellie W

I had such an amazing birthing experience with Deb, a midwife on staff at Westside Women's Care. I transferred care to them late into my pregnancy and they made me feel so safe and reassured me they can aid me in having a natural birth that I so wanted.
