Welcome to First State Women’s Care!

The physicians of First State Women’s Care have provided over 25 years of compassionate care to thousands of patients in the First State. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to women of all ages. With our extensive clinical experience and surgical expertise, we are able to provide complete OB/GYN care spanning from routine and high-risk obstetrics through gynecologic procedures and well woman exams. We pride ourselves in being the “first” to provide the newest technologies and surgical techniques to our patients. We are proud to be the most experienced minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons and were first to provide DaVinci robotic surgery. Likewise we are proud to announce the Mona Lisa Touch system for non-hormonal repair of vaginal atrophy and painful intercourse.

What’s New?  Stefanie Barnes, CNM – Relocating to Florida

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my departure from First State Women’s Care, effective May 26, 2017.  It has been a great pleasure and honor providing care and being a part of your health care team.  However, due to health reasons for one of my children, my family is relocating to warmer climates.  This was not an easy decision; however it is easier knowing you remain in the confident and caring hands of my colleagues.  Thank you for allowing me to partner in your health care needs and be a part of you and your familites’ lives.  I have truly enjoyed caring for each and every one of you and have been blessed by my time as a Certified Nurse Midwife with First State Women’s Care.
