Ursula Steadman, MD, graduated from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1995, one of the first female-only medical schools, and completed her obstetrics residency at Hartford Hospital. In 2010, Dr. Steadman joined the practice that would become Progressive Women’s Health, a division of Women's Health Connecticut.
Dr. Steadman is a board certified generalist ObGyn with special interest in preventative health, helping women through natural life transitions, such as adolescence and menopause, preconception counseling/pregnancy care, and gynecologic surgery, including minimally invasive laparoscopy. Dr. Steadman provides services that include: high and low risk obstetric care; vaginal and cesarean deliveries; uterine and ovarian surgery for benign indications; evaluation and treatment for abnormal PAP smears, cervical cerclage, D&Cs, and endometrial sampling.
To foster a woman's overall sense of well-being and quality of life for the long-term, Dr. Steadman favors prevention over procedures when possible. She tries try to approach patient care from a holistic perspective by looking at the whole woman to try to discover if any gynecologic specific problems may be affecting her patient’s daily life and, additionally, how non-gynecologic issues may affect her reproductive and long-term health.
She has served on a number of hospital committees and continues to be actively engaged in teaching clinical skills to medical students, ObGyn residents, Physician Assistant Students, and Advanced Nurse Practitioner Students.
As a mother and wife, Dr. Steadman promotes her own health and that of her family by striving to maintain a balanced lifestyle. Her outside interests include personal fitness, gardening, reading, and music. She also maintains a strong connection to her community through her involvement with social events, health promotion events, and public discussions on common health topics for women.
