About

Welcome to my new website! I am so happy to get this up and running!

My goal is to offer information and ideas that are accurate and balanced, guided by my 25 plus years practicing obstetrics and providing care to women. For a more complete resource, an updated version of The Working Woman’s Pregnancy Book will be available on kindle and other electronic platforms shortly. Stay tuned!

Over the next few months, I will blog about some hot issues for moms-to-be including:

  • Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT): a game changer in detection of common genetic conditions
  • How to lower your chance of needing a cesarean—and why you may want to
  • Tips for successful breastfeeding
  • Home birth in the US
  • Miscarriage and other losses
  • And lots more!

If you have questions or ideas for a topic, send them on in! I can’t promise I will have time to answer everything, but I will try to hit on common threads.

Remember that I can’t (and shouldn’t) practice medicine online, so this website and my books are just for general information. Also the views expressed here are mine only, and don’t represent the views of University Hospitals Health System or Case Western Reserve University. I will try to keep the content accurate and up to date, but reading and researching are not substitutes for medical care. Your doctor or midwife will always be your best source for personalized information and advice.
