Our Mission

To be the first gynecology practice in Maine based on the direct care model.
Put simply, to have a practice based on the care of the patient, independent of insurance companies. There will be TIME and OPPORTUNITY to delve into the topics of postpartum support, perimenopause, menopause, incontinence, pelvic floor dysfunction, sexual function, and many other topics in a safe and unique environment.
Let’s take women’s care away from one of sickness and dysfunction, to that of individualized care.

Our Services

With experience both in and out of the hospital, Higher Ground Women’s Health is intimately familiar with what works — and what doesn’t about traditional healthcare.

We offer a full range of well-being, contraceptive, fertility, and postpartum support — led by a highly-experienced, deeply caring, board certified OB/GYN.

Even better, we bring that all directly to you, without red tape, piles of paperwork, or long wait times on the phone (or in the office).
