Our Commitment to Gender-Affirming Care

We believe in providing care in a safe and supportive environment where all patients feel respected and valued.

Gender-Inclusive Gynecologic Care

At Essex County OB/GYN, our gender-inclusive gynecologic care includes standard GYN care and gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT).

We provide essential gynecologic services such as Pap smears, pelvic exams, and chest exams, in a manner that respects and accommodates the needs of nonbinary and transmasculine patients. Our skilled and compassionate team is dedicated to ensuring that these procedures are as comfortable and affirming as possible.

For those assigned female at birth, we offer GAHT. This therapy helps align physical characteristics with gender identity and can be a crucial part of an individual’s transition journey. Our team provides comprehensive guidance and support throughout the hormone therapy process, ensuring that each patient receives personalized and effective care.

  • Care During Pregnancy and Childbirth: We provide dedicated prenatal, pregnancy, and childbirth care tailored to the needs of nonbinary and transmasculine patients.
