TRUST, JOY, CARING, DEPENDABLE, EXCELLENT, FUN​

We Approach Your Pregnancy with Enthusiasm

We understand the joys as well as the challenges that pregnancy brings.

With a genuine reverence to the natural process of birth, we strive to balance the best of modern medicine with the wisdom of unhurried care. Informed by the experience of delivering countless babies, we are aware of the uniqueness of each patient and family. We recognize your autonomy as the most important principle and strive for honest communication as the best way to build mutual trust. We recognize the physical, psychological, social, and even economic impact pregnancy can have on our patients. We believe that sensitivity and the highest clinical standards in collaboration with other outstanding practitioners is the way to nurture the complex opportunities that new life brings. The philosophy of Village Obstetrics™ is one of deep respect for the natural process of pregnancy and birth. Yet as expert doctors, we recognize that at times carefully selected treatments are needed. We call our approach “minimally invasive obstetrics,” doing the least necessary interventions to achieve a healthy pregnancy and birth. Sometimes no intervention is needed, and at other times quite a bit is required, but our approach is always gentle and respectful. Our philosophy of care has yielded outstanding results and high patient satisfaction.

The guiding posts of our practice are respect, quality and safety.

We are thrilled and honored to be your doctors and are proud of our unyielding commitment to outstanding medicine and compassionate unhurried care.​

Safety

Ensuring your health and safety is our doctors' sacred duty and 24/7 endeavor.​

There is nothing more important than keeping you and your family safe. As you know or will soon discover, creating a safe environment for the growth and development of the next generation is one of your main tasks as parents. Safety is our mutual responsibility.

How We Keep You Safe

The national medical consensus is that
a natural birth is better for mom and baby

but if cesarean is needed we are experts at fast and safe surgery

“Women having their first births are up to 10 times more likely to have a cesarean than women having their second or subsequent child. With current U.S. Obstetric practices, if the first birth results in a cesarean delivery, then over 90 percent of all subsequent births will be cesarean. The opposite holds true:  if the first birth is vaginal, more than 90% of all subsequent births will be vaginal.”

The California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative—2011

“Of U.S. Women who require an initial cesarean delivery, more than 90% will have a subsequent repeat cesarean delivery. Not only does cesarean delivery increase the risk of maternal complications in the index pregnancy, including intraoperative complications, it has serious implications for future gestations. Adhesions of the uterus, bowel and bladder can result in trauma at surgery, whereas abnormal placentation (placenta previa, accreta, increta, percreta) and uterine rupture can be catastrophic for both mother and neonate. Given the risks associate with the initial cesarean delivery and its implications for subsequent pregnancies, the most effective approach to reducing overall morbidities related to cesarean delivery is to avoid the first cesarean delivery. Incidences of maternal as well as perinatal morbidity and mortality should be kept to the lowest level achievable.”
