Review

"Taiwo is very passionate and enthusiastic about all things women's health and all things baby health. For many year Taiwo has been a very strong advocate for better maternal fetal outcomes, and she continues to train and teach other women's health professionals on evidence based best practice. She is highly motivated, able to self direct, and works well in collaborative efforts. She is supportive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I have full confidence that Taiwo will make great strides: the world of Maternal and Fetal Well being is made so much more brighter with unique heart warming women such as Taiwo. It is with full confidence that I believe Taiwo is highly motivated and well suited to provide much needed care for women and children."
