As a nurse-midwife with years of experience in delivering babies in and out of the hospital, Jill can provide specialized support to pregnant and postpartum moms who need access to expert services and prescription medications in a timely manner. Please note Quantum Women's Health does not provide birth services at this time. For birthing care, we are happy to provide local referrals for midwifery or obstetrics care based upon your needs.

What services do you offer for pregnant women?

Jill is supportive of women's autonomy in birth choices, and she is supportive of community midwifery as a safe option for low-risk women and newborns. As a nurse-midwife, Jill is able to provide diagnostic services and pharmaceutical treatments that may become necessary during your pregnancy. If you are under the care of a licensed midwife in Idaho and need short-term evaluation and treatment for any of the following conditions, we are able to provide convenient telehealth consultations for:

  • perinatal mood disorders
  • urinary tract infections
  • mastitis, thrush, vasospasms, or other breastfeeding difficulties
  • yeast infections
  • bacterial vaginosis
  • hyperemesis gravidarum
  • treatment or prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including herpes simplex virus (starting at 36 weeks)
  • treatment for hypothyroidism
  • birth control for postpartum

What services do you offer for postpartum women?

post-partum depression

At Quantum Women's Health, we are experts in the care of postpartum and lactating mothers. We can provide birth control consultations, lactation problem visits, treatment for mastitis, medicated nursing creams, postpartum sexual concerns, and screening and treatment for postpartum mood disorders. If your mood symptoms are outside of the scope of our expertise, we will refer you to a higher level of care with no delay. We do offer services to postpartum mothers outside of normal business hours, so please ask if you do not see a time available that meets your needs.

Do you see newborns?

We love taking care of newborns! For healthy babies with no serious medical conditions, Quantum Women's Health is able to provide well-baby checkups for the first 4 weeks of life. We can provide combined postpartum visits for both you and your baby in your home, at 1 week, 2 weeks, and 4 weeks postpartum. For well-baby care, we provide weight checks, full physical exams, expert baby care advice, and feeding/lactation support.

Virtual Women's Health Visits

We love supporting families who are able to choose out-of-hospital birth! If you are the current client of a licensed midwife in Idaho, we are here to support you for a wide range of women's health concerns. Our Certified Nurse-Midwife can prescribe needed medications for low-risk conditions that may arise during your pregnancy or postpartum year. Pregnant and postpartum women have unique needs that can be easily overlooked in the urgent care/primary care setting. At Quantum, we can provide expecting families with accessible virtual visits, high-quality counseling regarding maternal/fetal risks of medications, and care that is breastfeeding and new-mother friendly.

Getting your first appointment is easy - after we receive a referral from your primary midwife, you will be able to schedule your Telehealth visit with Jill directly on our website, or by calling our office at (208) 510-0261.

If you are a licensed midwife in Idaho, you may initiate referrals for your current clients by calling or texting our office line anytime. Records can be faxed to (208) 225-4243. Same-day appointments are available for urgent referrals. Email for more information.
