These two lovely ladies are Rebecca Leeman, CNM, and Stephanie Philippides, MD. They are located at our Jefferson office and attend births at Lovelace Women’s Hospital and I recently asked for their thoughts about how WSNM approaches pregnancy and birth.
Dr. Philippides: Personal pregnancy care means individualized care. No two people experience pregnancy in the same way. We all have our own experiences, unique medical history, fears and worries, and our own hopes and dreams. To treat each person as an individual means that I want to make a connection to that person and really understand their needs.
Dr. Philippides: WSNM offers an outstanding team of people who specialize in caring for women. We offer our patients the opportunity to see the same provider during their prenatal care which is a critical element of personal pregnancy care. In addition, just because someone’s insurance changes it doesn’t mean you have to change providers, because we accept almost all insurance plans.
Dr. Philippides: I have the best job in the world, I get to be part of one of the single most important events a person’s lifetime, the birth of their child. I like to say I host Birthday Parties for a living.
There you have it! Thoughts on pregnancy, birth and WSNM from two of our awesome providers.
