Cahaba Medical Care in Perry County is dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of pregnant women by providing vital medical services in the area. Before the opening of the CMC Marion clinic, Perry County had no access to prenatal care services. Therefore, expectant mothers had to resort to traveling to other counties, an effort they had difficulty affording. Through the use of distance learning and telehealth technology, CMC provides comprehensive care to help increase access to high-quality, evidence-based care for these women, including those in underserved and rural communities. The data shows that black women in Perry County are disproportionately affected by limited access to medical services, making CMC’s services even more vital. These services help ensure that pregnant women and their families in the area have access to the care they need in order to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. 

Dr. Laura Lishman is offering obstetric care at CMC’s Marion location, where pregnant women can receive ultrasounds, laboratory testing, and fetal and maternal monitoring. Dr. Lishman is an experienced and well-respected family medicine physician who has served the local area for years. She earned her degree at the University of Alabama School of Medicine and went on to finish her residency at the prestigious Cahaba/UAB Family Medicine Residency. As a respected leader in her field, Lishman provides the highest quality of care to her patients.  

Since the clinic is now open, however, these women are guaranteed consistent, top-notch prenatal care, thus ensuring the wellbeing of both the mother and her child.
