Women’s Services At Ochsner St. Anne
A majority of women will need to seek care from an Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) during their lifetime. Whether it’s a Pap smear, specialized care for a high-risk pregnancy or management of menopause symptoms, you can rely on Ochsner St. Anne Hospital’s award-winning team of OB/GYN doctors.
As a woman, taking care of your health is crucial, not just to your well-being but to the well-being of your whole family – to the generations before you and after you. For decades, Ochsner has made it our mission to empower women across the Gulf South with the information, resources, service and treatment choices you need to keep yourself and your family healthy.
The care at Ochsner St. Anne reflects a focus on family. Ochsner St. Anne is nationally recognized as a Baby-Friendly Hospital. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global program that was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in 1991 to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.
“The baby-friendly hospital initiative follows evidence-based best practices for all moms and babies including encouraging skin-to-skin contact between moms and babies,” says Kellin Reynolds, MD, OB/GYN at Ochsner St. Anne. “The Baby-Friendly designation is given to hospitals who successfully implement the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes. It’s a privilege to not only offer exceptional healthcare to moms and babies, but to provide support and guidance as they grow their families.”
For three years in a row, Ochsner ranked among the top five percent in the nation for women’s health by Healthgrades®. We’re also proud to be recognized by U.S. News and World Report as “High Performing” in gynecology.
