In obstetrics, we are firm believers in minimal intervention. We prefer to keep your birthing experience as natural as possible with minimal surgical intervention. We do not use forceps. We will use vacuum or perform cesarean sections Birthonly if conditions necessitates. We strive to maintain our low cesarean section rate (we have one of the lowest rates in the Houston area at about 12%). Unfortunately, current policies at our affiliated hospitals precluded us from offering vaginal birth after cesarean section. Labor pain management with natural pain management techniques, intravenous medications, or epidural will be your decision based on the condition of your labor course.

Our role in obstetrics is to constantly monitor for possible complications and to act appropriately and expeditiously if such complication arises. Baring those conditions, your birthing experience should be as natural as possible.
