Patient Comments (2)
I had only met Dr. Nelson once before having my baby, and I was most nervous about getting her because she seemed cold. However, she turned out to be perfect for me when the time came. She let me labor on my own, and I was able to have a natural birth. She left the lights off and let me pull my baby up, and was more than happy to delay cord clamping. I loved her hands off approach. As a vbac mother, it was refreshing to be treated with respect.

She stuck with me through an extremely intense first labor. I pushed for 3 1/2 hours. I really believe any other doctor would have given me a C-section at that point. Since the baby seemed to be doing fine, she waited it out. I love her! I've birthed with 3 different doctors and she is BY FAR the best. I just wish I was guaranteed to have her each time. Her office seems to be so busy these days and I think there are 5 different doctors there now.
