A unique job

A Unique Job - Our Obstetric Care

Being an obstetrician is quite a unique job. As an obstetrician I am supporting a woman and her husband/partner during one of the most important times of their lives. While childbirth is one of the most rewarding times in a woman’s life it is well evidenced that childbirth is one of the most dangerous times in a woman’s life and in the life of her baby. Knowing that a patient puts their total trust and confidence in me is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I use all my skill and experience to do everything I can to help them have a successful outcome. It is wonderful to be able to celebrate with them the birth of their new baby(ies).
