Hi mamas!

Can someone please recommend a holistic GYN in the Bay Area? My friend was diagnosed with ovarian "tumors" (she's had cysts for years) and a uterine fibroid. Immediately they told her she may need a hysterectomy! I want her to get a second and third opinion.

Can anyone please help?!

Thanks!

I've looked for such a person, but with no luck (yet). I wonder if a midwife could help--either with an opinion or finding a GYN. I know that some in the Bay Area Homebirth Collective do women's health exams: http://www.bayareahomebirth.org/

Hi Ebony!
I am currently seeking some kind of doctor more on the holistic side. I have been struggling for years with bladder irritation and Nocturia (nighttime urination problems) and believe it may be related to cystitis or some other issue with my femal reproductive parts.

Can you please share with me what doctor you found??

Thanks!!
