Susan C. Mobley, M.D., of Provident OB/GYN Associates in Pooler, has a calling to help women navigate the many milestones of a woman’s life, including adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause.
“Women’s bodies are constantly changing, and it can be confusing and disconcerting at any age,” Mobley says. “One of the best aspects of my job is being able to sit and talk with patients and educate them about what is happening to them. Understanding the process takes away the fear and allows them to enjoy a new season of life.”
Pregnancy can be especially frightening, particularly for first-time moms. “During pregnancy, you’re concerned not only about your own body but the life of your unborn child,” she says. “I teach moms how to make good choices during pregnancy to ensure a healthy baby down the road.”
One of the educational tools Mobley uses is Mommy Mail, a free email subscription that provides weekly information throughout a woman’s pregnancy. It aligns with her due date and addresses common concerns during that specific week of pregnancy. After her baby is born, she continues to receive emails on parenting and child health until her little one’s third birthday.
Mommy Mail is sponsored by Memorial Health for Women. To register, go to women.memorialhealth.com.
Mobley’s medical path was set early, having observed her father, a psychiatrist, and her mother, a physician assistant, at work. Her sister is a urologist in Texas.
“Going into the field of medicine was just a natural choice,” Mobley says. “I chose ob-gyn because I liked the idea of taking care of women throughout their lifetime. I want to be able to develop long-term relationships with my patients as they have their families and then transition through the different phases of life, including menopause when they have to deal with different gynecologic issues.
“My goal is to help them stay healthy throughout,” she adds.
Mobley graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in biology and psychology. She earned her medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine in 2011, and went on to do her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Memorial University Medical Center. She joined Provident OB/GYN Associates’ Pooler office in August 2015.
