VBAC in Seattle

Dr. Foltz is very passionate about supporting women in their quest for VBAC.  She gets many personal referrals from other healthcare providers for this purpose and is a strong advocate for patients desiring a VBAC IN SEATTLE.

"I am very grateful to the service that I received from Dr. Foltz.  When I was choosing an OB to deliver my second baby I was selective since my first had been cesarean, due to large size (11 lbs. 3 oz).  I wanted to try a VBAC for my second child.  Dr. Foltz was always very respectful about my views, questions or concerns.  She gave me honest answers and educated me about decisions to be made and the options available.  I enjoyed her friendly disposition, as well as her nurse and others within the practice.  I felt that she sincerely cared about me and my family as people.  She remembered our names and details about our lives.  Dr. Foltz has a confident and calming disposition as well, which helped resolve fears that my husband and I felt at times during the pregnancy.  I also chose Dr. Foltz because she was a female and a mother, who knew what I was experiencing in pregnancy and as a mother.

During the delivery of my second child, after pushing for 2 hours with no delivery yet, I was worried that the delivery would be another cesarean.  Dr. Foltz helped me feel encouraged and motivated to keep pushing and strive towards a VBAC.   After my second child was born vaginally at 10 lbs 4 oz I was especially grateful for her motivation and support of my VBAC.  My delivery nurse commented that with my history of cesarean and large babies, many doctors would not have supported me in a VBAC, like Dr. Foltz had.  It was a wonderful experience for my husband and me.  We both felt so grateful and comforted to have Dr. Foltz on our team."
