During one of her first prenatal visits, Keewa Nurullah asked her obstetrician, Maryam Siddiqui, MD, about high C-section rates among African-American women.
“Dr. Siddiqui assured me this is not the case at the University of Chicago Medicine,” the first-time mother said. “She had a good understanding of different beliefs and ways of doing labor and delivery. And she answered all my questions.”
Together, they came up with a plan based on what Keewa wanted for her birth experience.
