Happy Doctors' Day to my favorite doctor!
Happy belated birthday from your Birthday Buddy! ❤️
Beginning of a new year, everyone wants to be healthier. My plaguing worry is that darn Diastasis Recti from 20 months ago - how do I know it's ok to do an ab workout?? :)
Thank you for delivering our happy and healthy little boy! You are fabulous :)
I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. Dr Angela fields walker was the best. She let me push for 5 hours because I wanted to!!!! Then at the end she was willing to go further but my husband had decided it was time and I was tired and we chose together to stop because her heart rate wasn't as stable. When she came out in OR she wasn't breathing. They put the tube in and got her breathing. But her blood sugar and eating wasn't stable. The NICU nurses here at Medical City I cannot thank them enough for what they have done!!! Anyone wanting a VBAC experience Dr Walker is one I would recommend. Thank you Dr Walker for believing in me and not giving up. It meant the world to me!!!!
Thank you so much for delivering our sweet boy!!
How am I just now finding your FB page? Congrats on your sweet baby girl!
Most amazing doctor!!! ❤️
Congratulations to a wonderful loving Doctor and friend.

It is Safe to Receive Flu Shot During Pregnancy - ACOG

It's flu season already and our flu vaccines are in - come & get em!

Pregnant mamas - you will pass those antibodies to your baby (who can't receive his/her own vaccine until 6 months old) AND help protect yourself (flu is more dangerous in pregnancy with a higher risk of pneumonia & even death).

A few of my patients have asked about increased risk of miscarriage as suggested by a study earlier this year. There are a few reasons not to worry:
- it was a very small study (larger ones with many more patients have shown that it is safe)
- because of the way they grouped people in the study, people with higher risk for miscarriage (because of things like diabetes) had a higher number of flu vaccines so it's difficult to know the true cause
- they identify the miscarriage risk in the first 28 days of pregnancy and not beyond (so if you're still worried, just wait until you are 6+ weeks pregnant).

Hope this helps!

A couple of important points: if you're pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, please avoid travel to Zika areas (see CDC website), and if you must, please protect yourself - DEET insect repellent is safe in pregnancy.

Some have asked me this recently - if you've traveled to a country where Zika is prevalent (but don't know for sure you contracted the virus), wait 8 weeks to try to get pregnant. If you KNOW your partner contracted the virus, wait longer. (Men can carry it for 6 MONTHS).

Doctors' Notes for Pregnant Employees Can Backfire, Experts Warn 07/10/2015

Doctors' Notes for Pregnant Employees Can Backfire, Experts Warn

Here's a good one - pregnant patients often ask for work modifications & we try to accommodate, but honestly it's NOT always medically necessary by the strict definition of that term...it's because patients want them. Therefore, I believe the PATIENT should investigate beforehand what modifications are "ok" with their supervisor & we can write a note to that effect. Maternity leave in the USA is truly much worse than most countries (that's a whole other issue), but sadly, this is what we have to deal with.

“But, I want YOU to deliver my baby ….” 06/29/2015

“But, I want YOU to deliver my baby ….”

In my first practice, we definitely shared deliveries & now I'm trying to do all my own. As I get busier, it gets more difficult to make that promise. I'm interested to hear what really matters to you...your own OB being there? Someone you've met at least? Don't care? Fine as long as they're female? Thoughts?
