Women’s GI Health

Normal life events that women experience can, unfortunately, cause specific GI issues which are often difficult and even embarrassing to talk about. Hartford HealthCare , therefore, seeks to provide a comfortable environment with an all-female staff for patients to come and openly speak about any GI issues and concerns they may be facing.

  • Childbirth
