Mission Statement

Preparing for the birth of your baby is a time filled with excitement and joy but it can also bring uncertainty and apprehension. Pregnancy, labor and birth bring about many questions both for you and your family. Hopefully you have a wonderful provider who answers any questions you may have. There are so many skilled providers--obstetricians, nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, labor nurses, lactation consultatns, childbirth educators and doulas--who can provide you with vaulable information to help make your pregnancy, labor and birth experience the most positive and healthiest that it can be. This blog is in no way intended to replace the excellent advice you will no doubt receive from your provider. Here you will find answers to commonly asked questions from many of my patients over the years as well as links to studies and other websites you may find helpful. Congratulations on your new addition (or additions for all of those moms of multiples)!
