Maternal-Fetal Medicine
I believe in treating patients the way I would treat my own family and friends.

Approach To Care

Pregnancy is an exciting time for a family. But when high risk complications arise, having a professional, caring, and trustworthy source for care and information is crucial. Dr. Heywood believes that every woman should be able to ask questions about these issues and should never leave the office without understanding the answers, as well as the plan of care.

With over 20 years of experience, she has the knowledge and expertise to ensure that you and your baby get the safest, most comprehensive care available.
