I’ve loved writing for as long as I can remember thanks to my late Aunt Dot, who instilled this passion at an early age. She would proudly tell her friends that I had been reading the New York Times since the age of 8. While I don’t know how true that is, I do have an intimate relationship with the written word and know that it is mightier and stronger than man-made weapons.
For the past five years, I’ve tried to put words on paper that would empower pregnant women to take control of their pregnancies and thus my book, The Smart Mother’s Guide to a Better Pregnancy Was Born. The landscape of healthcare as changed dramatically since I stepped out of residency training. Physicians no longer control the healthcare profession.
Right now, we’re in the midst of a pitched battle to reclaim our profession but in the meantime, four million babies will be born each year in the U.S. Those babies and their moms must be protected. Please read my interview with Carol Borthwick of the Qean Group below to find out how.
