Dr. Smith loves delivering babies! She enjoys taking care of women of all ages, whether it involves discussions about puberty, abnormal bleeding or hot flashes. She looks forward to building relationships, working together and providing comprehensive compassionate care.

Dr. Smith provides the full spectrum of Ob/Gyn care – management of low risk and high risk pregnancies, initial evaluation of infertility, management of abnormal pap smears and HPV infection, contraception, pregnancy loss, abnormal uterine bleeding, peri-menopause and menopause, and minimally invasive surgery including hysteroscopic and laparoscopic procedures.

 

Dr. Smith received her medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine and her undergraduate degree from Boston University. She completed her residency training at Christiana Care in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2002 and became Board Certified in 2003.

Dr. Smith is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). She has been an active member of ACOG for many years, working at state and national levels to promote quality health care for women. Dr. Smith is a member of the Medical Society of Delaware and serves on its governing Council as the Ob/Gyn Specialty Society Representative.

Dr. Smith and her daughter, Payton, live in Avondale, PA with their dog and two cats. As work-life balance has been a challenge this past year, Kirsten looks forward returning to a regular exercise routine and personally placing emphasis on living well!

Dr. Smith feels fortunate to know and work with Dr. Apel. Their common vision has led to the creation of Women Living Well.

"I just felt like my concerns were blown off. When I listed all of my symptoms (which are all relatively mild perimenopausal symptoms, nothing life threatening), I was asked which one symptom bothered me the most and that was the only one addressed. And that one issue was only addressed with a "that's pretty typical" response. Just frustrating that there was no interest in alleviating any symptoms other than an OTC supplement that helps sleeping and hot flashes (neither of which are a problem for me)."

Honestly, I did not have a good first impression of Dr. Smith. During my first appointment with her, she asked me two questions that were pain points to me and my personal story and after I left my appointment, I was in tears. However, I feel like Dr. Smith developed a good rapport with me and I was always happy to have an appointment with her. She listened to me well and gave me space to ask a lot of questions. I feel like she learned me well and was very supportive of my goals and needs for the pregnancy and labor/delivery.
