Paps & Cervical Exams
Date & location TBA
Pap smears and cervical exams seem to be the final frontier for student midwives and practicing midwives may not have frequent opportunities to perform these.
We will have opportunity to simulate these skills as well as actually obtain cervical cell specimen.
If a person is pregnant, is a pelvic exam necessary? When is a cervical exam appropriate? What do we learn? How much bearing will this information have on the pregnancy and/ or labor and birth? Participation is encouraged. For anyone who needs a Pap, come on down!
Lori Gibson, CPM, LM, MBC will guide us through the history and purpose of the speculum, Pap smears and cervical exams. She will present information on the procedure and reasons why to have your cervix examined whether you're pregnant or not.
There will be an extra fee for Pap smears which may be billed to your insurance company or directly to you. Please feel free to contact us for more information if you're interested.
