Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Canterbury ""I always loved science and was particularly interested in how the mind affects the body. I chose obstetrics because of my interest in the biological, psychological and social aspects of pregnancy." Possessing an attribute for empathy, Dr. Canterbury's personal philosophy resonates with the desire to help others, "One should give back something they've reaped - the more you get in life, the more you owe.""
