My private practice: Shifrah Womens Health offers a comprehensive range of services for women from puberty to menopause and beyond. Many- like those at Women’s Health at Memorial Hospital- work in private practices with physicians, while others are employed by the Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) or other types of health care plans. However in poor and conflict-affected areas, women are unable to access emergency obstetric services and continue to suffer from prolonged obstetric labor which causes fistulas to occur.
My role is to facilitate the best birth possible for each woman therefore I offer care that is tailored to each individual woman’s wishes. Care during pregnancy and prenatal consultations improve the mother’s health during her pregnancy and encourages fetal development.
Education level of the leading female is essential to the optimal health of a family ( United Nations Population Fund, n.d) Mothers must be able to provide basic care for children and impart life skills.

Women’s Health Concern is a national charity but we like to keep in close touch with communities in the Marlow area where our office is situated. In most environments, women’s health nursing practitioners are responsible for diagnosing and treating conditions that either affect only women or affect women in greater numbers than men.
This requires locating services close to the people that need them, adapting the services to local cultures and making them free of charge as our beneficiaries are often among the poorest sector of the population and cannot afford to pay for health care.
