The staff at the Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic is excited
to announce an extension of their services to include prenatal care. Through 34 weeks of pregnancy, expectant mothers will be cared for at the Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic by Katie Willcox, D.O. and Nurse Practitioner Erin Leonard.
At 34 weeks, care is provided by Tami Fahnlander, D.O. and Associates with Women’s Health Services in Des Moines. “We start coordinating with Dr. Fahnlander when a mom is 20-weeks pregnant,” explained Dr. Willcox. “So, when we transfer her care, we’ve been working together for quite some time. It makes a smooth transition possible.”
The partnership is ideal for pregnant women living in Mt. Ayr and surrounding communities. It limits the number of trips to Des Moines while providing comprehensive care throughout a pregnancy. Once a baby is born, both mother and child can come right back to the Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic to continue receiving family care.
Dr. Tami Fahnlander graduated from Simpson College in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and Chemistry. She received her medical degree in 2004 from Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center. In 2008, she graduated from the residency program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria and returned to Iowa to begin her medical career. Dr. Fahnlander is a Board Certified Physician at Women’s Health Services.
