I am a practicing Ob/Gyn physician and first time mommy to a beautiful, busy toddler.  In my experience as a physician I have been frustrated by the incredible amount of incorrect medical information that is passed between my patients as they are navigating through pregnancy, delivery and postpartum.  I have always tried to educate patients during their  obstetric and postpartum visits with me, pointing them in the direction of solid sites containing accurate information they can rely on. IMG_5104

After going through pregnancy, delivery and the fourth trimester myself as a patient, I realized as a physician I had been neglecting the importance of the fourth trimester.  The fourth trimester is a period of time that is rarely talked about, but yet so critical in the bond between mommy, baby and family. It is a time of healing, learning and growing.  My goal with this blog is to empower women with up to date, medically accurate information relating to pregnancy, labor/delivery and most importantly the fourth trimester all while interjecting a little first hand experience.   I hope that you will be able to relate and learn something new.  Thank you for your interest.  Best of luck to you and your new family!
