Tracking down the right women’s health clinic can be a daunting task. One of the reasons why so many women neglect to take care of their feminine health could be the intimidating factor of simply not knowing where to go. Facilities across the city offer everything from free birth control, and safe and non-judgmental abortion procedures, to specialized obstetrics and gynaecology, including naturopathic options, hormonal health care, and breast health programs.
