Dear All Expectant Mothers on Cape Cod and the Islands,

I have had the pleasure of spending some time getting to know Dr Ried Heywood.  We have spent many hours discussing his/our philosophy of pregnancy, labor and birth. His vast experience in many different settings have enabled him to focus on starting the perfect OB/GYN service blending cutting edge up-to-date prenatal care with personal attention to his patients. He is deeply committed to his patients and cares about the most positive outcome for YOU and your BABY!

I am so excited that he has decided to open his own practice to better serve the women on the Cape with a holistic and personal approach that I feel is lacking in most practices today.

He is willing to take the time required to comfort and care for a pregnant woman and her baby.  He not only has excellent surgical skills to intervene if needed to deliver a healthy baby (his Cesarean section rate is very low in comparison to most Physicians) but more importantly, he follows the most current guidelines based on scientific evidence. This means that you will be receiving the most current and thoughtful care in a friendly office environment with all decisions being made for the good of the client, YOU!

I believe that Falmouth Women’s Health Care will be the premier practice in this area.  The location in Mashpee commons makes your trip to the Doctor easy and pleasant with shopping/errand options!

Spoiler alert: Coming soon is group prenatal care called “Centering pregnancy” which is now in favor over quick 10 min office visits. This new and improved prenatal visit allows for private time with Reid and his staff but involves your partner as well.  You will be in a group of other Mother’s that have a similar due date.

Have a great experience ladies!
