Every Wonder Why Doctors Become Doctors?

Luke Kervin asked me to tell him five things I wish someone had told me before I became a doctor. If you’ve grown up in a family of doctors, you sort of know what to expect. However, I didn’t have doctors in my family, so I was sort of going it alone. I have seen the practice of medicine change profoundly in my 40 years of practice, and to my mind, not for the benefit of patients. That’s why I developed this web site, so women and their families can ask questions and have access to information about how they can make their pregnancies and deliveries safer.

Welcome to My
Pregnancy Your Way Supporter Group!

One of the things I learned as a student and resident, is that in obstetrics you can have a lot to say about your outcome. In other words, you can pick your outcome much of the time—not all of the time—but certainly about 90% of the time. Pregnant women so often feel they shouldn’t question the expert, the obstetrician. My goal is to provide pregnant women a safe arena where they can freely ask questions about their choices in their pregnancy and delivery. I can’t offer you medical advice, but I can tell you about my experiences with the 6000 babies I delivered.

In today’s medical environment, it is very difficult to raise questions about your choices of care. I want to encourage women to have the confidence to trust in themselves and the decisions they make about their care.

Obstetrics isn’t about disease.

It’s about preserving your and your baby’s good health.
