Dr. Bates delivered both of my children 24 years ago. I saw an article of her in the news and inspired me to write about her. Dr. Bates was fabulous to my family, personal attention, and a loving human being. Dr. Bates assisted me with a difficult pregnancy and made sure she was at the delivery room even when she was not feeling well. If this is your first baby or your last she will treat you like the most important patient in the world.
