Description

Medical practices provide the best care and outcomes when they put the patients first. Waterville Womens Care emphasizes patient-centered medical care, and the physicians at this practice recognize common concerns and questions of their pregnant patients .Not all patients have equal knowledge or access to information about pregnancy and delivery, but they all have the right to know what is happening during this time. While there is value in books and well-researched websites that address common pregnancy concerns, this project provides booklets with straightforward information about these common areas of inquiry, including different approaches to care for each. The short booklets will be placed in each room in the Waterville and Augusta offices on a key ring for patients to look through. Ms. Fein shadowed Dr. Karen Bossie
