Mercy Health Physician Partners and Mercy Health Saint Mary’s welcome Kimberly Barrows, MD to the Grand Rapids Area

Kimberly Barrows, MD, is the area’s first Natural Procreative (NaPro) Technology specialist and family medicine physician. Empowering women to be partners in their health, NaPro is a new women’s health science that monitors and maintains a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health. NaPro is a fertility-care based medical approach rather than a fertility-control approach to family planning and gynecological health.

According to Barrows, the benefits of NaPro Technology span a variety of women’s health issues beyond the natural management of fertility. This particular technology also provides solutions for problems such as:

  • infertility,
  • miscarriages,
  • premature birth,
  • postpartum depression,
  • endometriosis,
  • premenstrual syndrome,
  • recurrent cysts and more.

Barrows is the only NaPro specialist in the Grand Rapids area.

“As a NaPro medical consultant, I will provide professional, compassionate medical care using more ethically acceptable methods for many people of faith,” Barrows said. “I will partner with patients to make a plan to optimize their health.”

Barrows received her medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio (University of Toledo) and completed her Family Medicine residency at Columbus Regional Family Practice Program in Georgia. She is board certified in Family Medicine.

Barrows has worked as a family medicine physician for over a decade, most recently in Omaha, NE. It was there at the Pope Paul VI Institute at Creighton University that she acquired specialty training in NaPro Technology.

Barrows is currently accepting new patients into her practice, Mercy Health Physician Partners Women’s Health and Fertility Care. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 616.685.7985 or visit
