I originally wanted a midwife and had one, but when I got GD and was told that I had to go insulin and it was my fault that I had to go on insulin (as if I wished it on me and my baby) I was then told that I needed a different doctor. I was truly hoping to avoid a doctor, but for the sake of my baby, got a different doctor. The only reason why I chose Dr. Cunningham is because she was the only doctor at the office. When I had my first appt. with her, I was pretty moody that day and didn't wanna deal with anything she had to say, but she was completely patient with me and was always kind, respectful, and treated me like an adult instead of a young mother (I was 19 at the time). Most importantly, she made me feel good about myself even when my husband couldn't. I'm so glad and thankful for Dr. Cunningham.
