About the Author:
I enjoy getting to take care of my patients through the spectrum of life. My approach is to advocate for women, and to always be open to questions or concerns. I like to listen to my patients and then use my medical knowledge to complement what they already know best about themselves and their family.

At St. Luke’s Birthing Center, it’s important for us to keep moms and babies together after c-sections. It’s one of the ways St. Luke’s promotes the special bonding time known as the golden hour.
