Nurture, Halton Integrative Women’s Health Centre, is Burlington’s first multidisciplinary women’s health centre. Founded and directed by Dr. Shahnaz Chowdhury, HIWHC reflects a team of health professionals who are passionate and determined to provide the highest quality of patient care. At HIWHC we strive to make each of our patients experience as unique and empowering as they weave through the journey of attaining good health. We foster a true integrated model where our specialists work as a team, to provide a holistic approach to patient's care. Although we specialize in Women's Health we do see patients of all ages and all stages including men, women, children and seniors. Our team specializes in a vast array of women’s health concerns, special interest in fertility issues, pregnancy care, PMS, Thyroid Disorders, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Menopause, and Menstrual Irregularities. As infertility is associated with both men and women, treating men’s health concerns is similarly significant at our centre. Our unique integrated approach incorporates research-based treatment, combining them with traditional therapies. HIWHC's team of health professionals includes naturopathic doctors, network care chiropractor, osteopathic manual practitioner, registered massage therapists, fertility counsellors and yoga & instructors. At HIWHC our mission is to empower patients to become advocates of their own health. To foster our patients’ health and wellness, we offer ongoing educational seminars and workshops. As you become aware about our centre and decide to make a change, your journey has already begun. We welcome and encourage you to take this opportunity and start on this path
