Jana Ellixson, 39, was referred to Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists when she learned she was expecting twins.
With her first pregnancy, she entrusted her care to a midwife service since she wanted a natural delivery in her home. She needed a C-section anyway. This time around, Jana had already decided she wanted to deliver her twins in a hospital fully equipped to respond to unexpected complications.
As soon as her obstetrician discovered she was expecting twins, she referred her to Maternal Fetal Medicine at Grand View Hospital.
"I love coming here," said Jana, who receives a stress test twice a week. "Everyone has been so kind to me and seems genuinely concerned about us. The doctors and staff have the expertise we need, so I know all three of us are being well cared for medically."
