CHILDBIRTH AND PREGNANCY PHILOSOPHY
"My basic philosophy is to show up, pay attention and keep my hands off (minimize interventions) unless the mother's or baby's needs warrant intervention. Then it is my job to either provide (or find the best person to provide) whatever is needed in the way of support, further investigation of the concern, or else engage in whatever action is needed for the specific circumstance."
