What do you think??


Last night at Dewitt Community Library there was a panel on birth plans. On the panel was Dr. Waldman who is the current president of ACOG (American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology) and other local birth professionals.

Thanks to the hardwork of Julie and Chris of Doulas of CNY, Dr. Waldman appreciates doulas. He loves when doulas are there to help the care team provide the best care for the patient.

He, the president of ACOG, a local Syracuse OB, talks highly of the doula/dr birth team.
How refreshing.
