“Every week, I see obstetrical patients that I delivered who are now having their own babies,” Dr. Carol Swindle of Henderson & Walton Women’s Center, P.C., says. Dr. Swindle has been serving patients in and around Birmingham since 1988. “I enjoy seeing patients through their adolescence, childbearing years, and on into menopause,” she says.
Dr. Swindle has a passion for medicine that started during her high school years. “I had the opportunity to work in a lab. This was my initial exposure to the medical field,” she explains, adding, “This allowed me to take science classes as a freshman and I subsequently pursued a career in medicine.” Dr. Swindle received her medical degree from The University of Alabama School of Medicine and completed her residency training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
“Being an OBGYN is a great blend of medicine and surgery,” Dr. Swindle says. She is excited about the new non-invasive prenatal screening. “This gives us assurance that babies are chromosomally normal, and if there are issues, offers the opportunity to prepare and support the expectant parents,” she explains, adding, “Patients are particularly excited about the ability to learn the baby’s gender as early as seven weeks.”
When Dr. Swindle is not at the office, you can find her spending time with her family and traveling. She and her husband, the late Dr. Mark Swindle, have two grown children. She has also adopted several rescue dogs and the newest furry member of the family is named Henley.
