Pregnancy and the birth of a child are both joyous and exciting but this can also be an uncertain time. Guy’s approach to his practice is medical safety to mother and child. Part of providing the best care to both mother and baby he believes also involves providing as much information as necessary for the expectant parents be involved in the decision making process toward the birth of their child.
He has experienced midwives that are part of his practice that work with Guy as a team. They provide additional information and another expert opinion and perspective that we believe is important for expectant parents, particularly first time parents. They are always available to consult, and then provide another opportunity to ask questions about even more rudimentary things such as what to bring to hospital.
