Meet this week’s guest:

A board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Rahman has tailored her practice to meet the needs of women for gynecologic and cosmetic services. After years of practicing obstetrics and gynecology in a variety of large academic settings and locations, she started her own practice – Center for Gynecology and Cosmetics – to focus on her special areas of interest to ensure patients have their best quality of life and to empower them to be better versions of themselves.

As for her academic appointment, she serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in downtown Chicago. 

Originally from North Carolina, Dr. Rahman attended Duke University for her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology where she also specialized in Women’s Studies. She then continued in her home state at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for her medical degree. As women’s health care and women’s issues have always been on the forefront of concerns for her, she moved up north for her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Massachusetts. She has traveled internationally with the World Health Organization as well.

Distinguished as a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG), the doctor is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Through her research and dedication, Dr. Rahman is one of the few physicians nationally to receive the designation of ISSWSH (International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health ) Fellow (IF) and is actively involved with cutting edge approaches to sexual pain and sexual dysfunction. She is on the Board of Directors for ISSWSH as well as the educational committees for both ISSWSH and ISSM (International Society for Sexual Medicine)

Moreover, she is an active member of the American College of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Physicians, the International Pelvic Pain Society, and specializes in a multidisciplinary approach to chronic pelvic pain. For midlife women, she is also a specialist in menopause management with the designation of Certified Menopause Physician through the North American Menopause Society (NCMP).
