After more than 30 years of practice as an OB/GYN and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist you might think that I would have this whole pregnancy care thing figured out. You would be wrong. Every day I learn something new and much of what I learn is confirmation that pregnancy is not a disease. Unfortunately the current system always assumes problems and sometimes even causes them.
As a committed pregnancy care reform advocate I am constantly reading, networking, and thinking of better ways to provide care for mothers and babies. Putting those thoughts into words is a valuable discipline. I will use this blog as a way to communicate those thoughts. Let’s call it “Pregnant Pauses”.
I know that many of you also envision an improved pregnancy care system that provides satisfying, high quality care at a more reasonable price. Pregnant Pauses will be a forum for us to interact. I look forward to the conversation.
