How do I know if I have Post Partum Depression?
For most women, having a baby is an exciting time. Yet, after childbirth, many mothers feel sad, angry, afraid or anxious. Most new mothers have these feelings in a mild form called postpartum blues. This is a passing state of heightened emotions. About 10% of new mothers have a more serious condition called post partum depression (PPD).

Take Control of Your Delivery with the Power of Wireless Telemetry Monitoring
If you’re planning to deliver without an epidural or limit the use of pain interventions as long as possible, then wireless Telemetry Monitoring may be for you. We use fetal monitoring during labor to try to better understand what is happening in utero so we can more safely deliver your baby. In the past to be monitored, you were attached to a monitor via cords that were several feet long. Now, you no longer have to be tied to a machine the whole time. You can walk in the rooms and in the halls. You can even shower while being monitored. Read the full article regarding Wireless Telemetry Monitoring

Three Women First Physicians Named Louisville Magazine’s 2013 “Top Docs”
Questionnaires mailed to 2,300 members of the Great Louisville Medical Society requested area physicians’ top choices of Louisville doctors for medical care for either themselves or a family member. Survey respondents listed their selections of top physicians and specialists in order of preference for each discipline. Listings received points according to placement, which were then tallied to come up with the 2013 list of Top Docs.
In Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Brown, Dr. Terry and Dr. Warren were three of the ten OB/GYN physicians selected as this year’s “Top Docs.”
