Dr. Christensen delivered all four of my kids Via C Section with one attempted VBAC, He was Amazing. I had high Anxiety through each baby and he was patient and kind. When it was time to deliver he made me feel calm when everything around me was moving so fast. On my third child we attempted a VBAC, I stopped dialating do to my son being in the wrong position, he cared about both my and sons well-being. He delivered my kids healthy and I made a great recovery each time.
