Ages & Stages
The continuum of a woman’s life is comprised of several life stages, each having characteristic and special features. These stages span puberty and our young reproductive years through our elder years and include pregnancy, delivery and important life events and the health of all our mind and body systems. Health status in a particular stage often influences the next stage of our health and development.
Taking charge of your health is important at all stages and should begin in our youth. Knowing the current recommendations for testing, screenings and immunizations and keeping these up to date is a PROACTIVE way to stay in charge of your health. The four age groups below link to the current information and recommendations for each life stage.
