Dr Shetty’s Philosophy

“Whether it is a complicated pregnancy or difficult birth, I am inspired daily by the courage and undeviating determination of my patients to help find their baby find the way ‘home’ to loving arms.

My goal for every patient is to make them feel comfortable and in control of their pregnancy by providing compassionate and connected care. 

I believe “a mother knows best,” and feel humbled to work together with mothers to make important decisions at a time they need it most.”
