Dr. Lamale-Smith saved our baby. I was at risk for miscarriage and pre-term labor. And with her thoughtful care and expertise we made it all the way to 35 weeks! Such a win. She was incredibly knowledgeable, caring and professional. We are beyond thankful, our baby wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her guidance and care.
