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.

About Higher Ground Women's Health

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).

Contraceptive choices aren’t one-size-fits-all. We take the time to answer your questions, learn what you need, and find a solution that works for you and your lifestyle.
Sexual Health

Sexual Health

When was the last time you were asked about pleasure — including sexual health — at your doctor’s visit? Being healthy means feeling good. We want you to feel safe enough to share.


Becoming a parent, no matter how you get there, is a vulnerable and incredible experience. We honor the emotional and physical journey of creating a family — however it looks.
Wellness Visits

Wellness Visits

Stop dreading your annual exam. Caring for yourself shouldn’t feel like a chore. At Higher Ground Women’s Health, you’ll feel comfortable, safe, and understood.
Postpartum Support

Postpartum Support

Fifteen to thirty minutes for your postpartum check-in isn’t enough. Life changes after having a baby. We provide a safe place to land (and a soft place to sit).
Pelvic Floor and Incontinence

Pelvic Floor and Incontinence

Trust us -- it's not just you. And you don't have to live with it, either. We can diagnose, determine, and decide how to help you feel more confident -- and comfortable.
Hormonal Management

Hormonal Management

People are not cook books! We provide extensive hormone testing to deep dive into subjects of metabolic syndrome , PCOS, irregular menses, and thyroid disease.
Menopause & Perimenopause
