Philosophy of care:
Bringing a child into the world is one of life’s most profound experiences. For most expectant families, pregnancy and childbirth are uncomplicated and joyful. But others are not so fortunate. An unexpected pregnancy complication is frightening. A complex diagnosis can be difficult to understand. The benefits and risks of treatment options can be overwhelming. At times like these, families need a place to turn for help. At a time when families are most in need, my goal is to provide accurate, timely information, state-of-the-art treatment, compassionate support, and thoughtful, objective guidance to help them navigate some of the most important decisions of their lives.
