Our births take place at St. Mark's Hospital. We strive to offer childbirth experiences that are emotionally satisfying and family-centered. We can assist in natural childbirth or arrange for labor anesthesia, according to the wishes of the woman. We remain with women throughout their labor, and are highly trained to recognize situations that might require a doctor's attention. We also provide care and counseling after the birth, and throughout the postpartum period.
