Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical practice includes taking an integrative approach to caring for pregnant women with "high-risk" conditions such as: mental health conditions, genetic conditions, high blood-pressure, diabetes, endocrine conditions, or fetal conditions.
I address the physical and psychosocial health of pregnant women as this can improve both maternal and child health and maternal-child health is the cornerstone of a healthy society.
