From the Provider

“Women and families experiencing complications during pregnancy need data and expertise. But even more, they need someone to help them understand what it means for them. Someone who will listen to their needs, learn about their situation and guide them in reaching decisions that take all things into account. My goal is to help each person understand the best available science and to be the source of emotional support and encouragement they need.”

About the Provider
