Star-Bulletin staff

A new medical practice has opened in Kailua offering obstetrics, gynecology and midwifery services to women of all ages.

Windward Women's Care has included midwifery services to expand the choices for women in birthing decisions.

Partners in the practice, located at 40 Aulike St., Suite 211, are Dr. Sarah Schutte, Dr. Ann Rahall and Brenda Jackson, family nurse practitioner and nurse midwife.

Schutte formerly was assistant OB/GYN professor at the University of Hawaii and medical director of the Women's Outpatient Clinic at Kapiolani Medical Center.

Rahall, also from the university's OB/GYN faculty as assistant professor, has a holistic approach to women's health care.

Jackson has worked for six years as a nurse practitioner in Kailua and will be among the first midwives to deliver at Castle Medical Center.

The women said they "came up with the idea of forming a mixed physician and midwife practice because they share a common vision of work and life balance along with their intense desire to offer women of Hawaii healthcare choices across a broad spectrum."

They're all married, have children and are active in their communities and churches.

Call Schutte at 263-7383 or page her at 363-1722.
