We speak with Dr. Michelle Aristizabal, an obstetrician and gynecologist who founded Wombkeepers, a maternity wellness center on Valley Road. She shares why she wanted to build her own OB-GYN practice, how she ended up working alongside her mother, the role your partner plays in your health, and how centering a women's autonomy in her own birth choices has resulted in a c-section rate that is 20% below the national average. As a solo practitioner, she has single-handedly delivered 2,000 of our local babies!
Check out the show notes for curated resources from Dr. Aristizabal on birth control, childbirth, menopause, and local dad's groups. For those looking for more insights, we posted a recent in-depth podcast interview she gave about her book.
