2016: Reflections From One Doctor

2016... what a year!  


I took advantage of some of my days off around New Year's to relax and reflect on my 2016.  I started with Kamm McKenzie in the summer of 2015, so 2016 was my first full year with the practice.   And what a year it has been!

One Plus One DOES NOT Equal Two

Two years ago I wrote a blog about making the transition from doctor to dad after my son was born.  Recently the company that runs our online presence reposted it.  Many patients were congratulating me on the birth of my son!  Well, I started to feel guilty that I had not written a blog about having had a second child.  You know, the second kid never gets as much attention as the first.

Alcohol in Pregnancy: Part 1

I don’t have the opportunity to talk much about my “beer hobby" in the office, since so many of our patients are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or breastfeeding. If I do mention that I’m a hophead, I’m often asked, “Can I have a few sips? How much alcohol is safe in pregnancy? Does beer really help the milk let down when breastfeeding?”

VBAC - A Closer Look

VBAC is an often desired delivery for patients who are seen at Kamm McKenzie.  In fact, we have many women who chose to come to us, or transfer their care to us mid pregnancy, because of our willingness to support a woman’s decision for VBAC and our success rates of vaginal birth.  I think it is important for all to know that we take VBAC seriously and want our patients to be educated on the risk and benefits of this.
