Peggy Martinez

I am honored to be a member of the OBGYN prenatal care team with the Point West Medical Clinic. Pregnancy is a very important life event full of joyful changes and sometimes ups and downs.  As an Early Start Specialist I offer education, information and emotional support.  I encourage self-care. I also educate on the prevention of risks related to substance use and resources if needed. The best outcomes of health begin with early care for both mother and baby. It is a wonderful opportunity to support women during such an important milestone as bringing a new life into the world.

My clinical interested include: Self-care and mindfulness.

I am from the Sacramento area. I enjoy time with family, friends and my pets. I practice meditation, enjoy gardening and painting. My philosophy is to find joy in each day and to look for the miracles.

I joined Early Start in 2011.
