I am a recently graduated physician, a single mom of two boys, and a reluctant rabble-rouser. I am in my intern year at a family practice residency.
I spent two years training as a direct entry midwife before starting medical school. While in medical school, I won and completed a pre-doctoral research fellowship, in which I studied labor and delivery interventions. I have written peer reviewed stuff on VBAC and patient autonomy, and not so peer reviewed stuff here and elsewhere, like Mothers in Medicine and Kevin MD.
I have some opinions on some things. The more I experience and endure, the more nuanced these opinions get. All voices are welcome, initially, on here. Just behave, mmKay?
