Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Velazquez "For expectant mothers, the prospect of having a baby is both a joyous and exciting one. But for a number of reasons, some women need to be watched more closely during pregnancy. In such cases, the woman's obstetrician may suggest she consults with a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist. Our commitment is to provide thorough, professional and compassionate prenatal care and consultations. Our primary goal is for the best possible outcome for both the mother and baby. We see our role as supportive of the woman and her family, understanding that ultimately the experience of pregnancy and birth belongs to them. We are guides during this natural process, and we respect the right of each woman to determine, within reason, her experience. We feel privileged to participate in this journey."
