Radiance Women's Wellness has CLOSED!

Tara Cardinal, CNM, ARNP is providing women's health care services at Community Health Care, with the Women's Health Clinic, in Tacoma, WA and is able to accept new patients in that setting. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition!

Tara Cardinal, CNM, ARNP supports and promotes women's health for optimal well being through personalized care to meet your preventative and women's health concerns across the lifespan. This includes but is not limited to preventative wellness visits, family planning, contraception, preconception care, infection screening/treatment, breast and cervical health and miscarriage management. You are now able to obtain routine women's health, obstetric and gynecologic healthcare services in a welcoming and empowering environment - you do not need to be seeking pregnancy or currently pregnant to receive comprehensive nurse midwifery care!

Empowered care begins with you! Your participation is essential throughout every aspect of your care.

You have many choices in who provides your "well woman" health care. You can receive care from a doctor, such as a gynecologist, or an advanced practice nurse, such as a nurse midwife or nurse practitioner. Often, naturopathic physicians also incorporate women's wellness into the services they provide. While each of these providers has unique skills and expertise that span the spectrum from highly specialized to generalist, they can all provide quality well woman care. Finding the provider type whose philosophy of care and values most closely meet yours and your needs is what is most important.

Tara Cardinal, CNM, ARNP facilitates "shared-decision making" where you are provided access to high-quality, up-to-date information about your health status and conditions, opportunities to discuss risks, benefits, alternatives and limits of scientific knowledge, and an opportunity to review your values and preferences.

If you are seeking empowered care provided in a comfortable and welcoming space, Tara Cardinal, CNM, ARNP is the provider for you! Visit her at one of 3 Community Health Care locations in Tacoma and experience receiving your care in a supportive, empowering and individualized way!

Family Planning

Receive comprehensive information on all available family planning methods (also known as contraceptives and birth control) and support in choosing the method that is right for you!


Intrauterine devices (IUD's) are a safe and highly effective method of long term reversible contraception. Despite being able to rely on them for many years, you can also remove them whenever you are ready to move to the next stage of your reproductive life.


It is currently recommended that you have an annual "well woman" preventative visit. This offers an opportunity for cervical and breast cancer screening, updates on general health status, contraceptive needs and reproductive life planning.


Many labs are available on-site, including several that test for common infections. Most others are collected on-site and sent away to an outside lab for results - saving you valuable time!


Problem visits address issues ranging from infections in the urinary tract, genital region and breasts to menstrual concerns.



While labor and birth support are not available at this time, Radiance Women's Wellness offers prenatal and postpartum care and care during breastfeeding. Counseling and support for miscarriage as well as expectant and medication management are available. Assessment, diagnosis, management and referrals (when indicated) are offered for problems experienced throughout pregnancy.


All are welcome here, this is a safe place.

Enjoy accessible and convenient women's health now in Tacoma!
