Lifecycle Women's Health Care Central Maine

Is lifecycle women's health a safe place?

The aim of Lifecycle Women's Health practice is to create a safe and inclusive space for everybody and every body who desires women’s health care.

Do you take insurance? 

Lifecycle Women's Health accepts insurance. Currently I am enrolled with Maine Care, Aetna, Medicare, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United, Cigna and Harvard Pilgrim. I am still in the process of getting credentialed with Maine Community Health Options. I would like to expand coverage as needed. So if your insurance company is not listed here please let me know.

Self-Pay is always an option as well. 

Self-Pay costs for health visits are as follows:

Initial health visit and annual exams: $150.00

Follow up visits over 30 minutes: $125.00

Follow up visits 30 minutes or less: $75.00

Please note that health counseling/coaching visits are usually not billable to insurance companies and require out of pocket payment. Initial visits are $150, and subsequent visits are $100/month which include 2-3 in person or virtual visits during that time.


How long is an appointment? 

Initial Visit & Annual Exams...1 Hour
Re-Evaluations...30 -60 Minutes

There are times when you will need more time than that and visits will be scheduled accordingly. To make the most of our time together, please fill out any paper work that I send you before the time of your appointment.


I am a women’s health specialist and a primary care provider for women within my scope of practice. I provide annual exams, preventive screenings, holistic health maintenance, and treatment of some common health issues, and refer to specialists when indicated.

do you provide full scope midwifery care?

We will not be taking care of women during pregnancy, but truly support the midwifery model of care for women during all phases of life, and have great referrals for the childbearing year if you need it!

Can i bring a support person to my appointment?

Absolutely! We want you to feel comfortable, so bring anyone you desire.
