About the Provider
Building connections with patients is one of things Dr. van Swam values most about caring for women. She enjoys hearing their stories and being able to alleviate their fears and anxieties by helping them understand what’s going on with their health or pregnancy. She strives to be an honest, supportive and straightforward healthcare partner every woman can trust; someone who provides her patients with facts and information. She also hopes to make them smile.
Dr. van Swam was drawn to OB/GYN by the variety it provides and remains interested in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, including a special interest in adolescent and pediatric gynecology. She cares for a wide spectrum of gynecologic disorders and infertility. She performs in office surgeries and more advanced laparoscopic procedures with her partners. In addition to caring for healthy, surrogate and twin pregnancies, she also cares for women with higher risk pregnancies in our Moderate Risk Clinic at Northwest Perinatal Center. She hopes that she can educate each woman about what it was that brought them into her office so that they can leave confident in what they have learned and knowing what to expect.
In her spare time, Dr. van Swam enjoys improving her Spanish. She and her husband enjoy spending time with their son and cooking at home. They also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, camping, cycling, skiing and traveling.
