Overview

Having pregnancy complications, such as a baby that doesn't grow as much as expected, or a baby that is born too early, can be difficult for parents and families. My research focuses on figuring out how to best detect and manage pregnancies at risk of having these and other complications, and how to best communicate information so that patients can make treatment decisions that are right for them.
