About Me

I am a specialist in maternal-fetal medicine, which is a subspecialty of OB/GYN that focuses on the care of women with high-risk pregnancies. Duke is a very special place for those women. We have the opportunity to take care of women who have medical complications in pregnancy, obstetric complications or have been diagnosed as carrying a baby with a congenital anomaly. We are lucky at Duke to be able to work closely with a wide range of outstanding providers who are experts in their fields to help care for our patients. These include specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, rheumatology, neonatology and pediatric surgery. I chose OB/GYN, because I absolutely love delivering babies. When you think about life events for families, the birth of a child is one of those events that they’ll remember forever. To be able to be part of that is such a unique opportunity, as is helping women who have situations that complicate their pregnancy and delivery.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I conduct both basic science/laboratory research, as well as participate in running clinical studies. My laboratory research interests primarily focus on the hormone oxytocin and in understanding the mechanisms of uterine contractility. This work is translated then to the clinical care of women through studies dedicated to understanding normal and abnormal labor. In addition to our work in labor, our group is involved in understanding the role that medical conditions and complications have in pregnancy outcomes.
