Other than Dr hardiman recs for OB in metro Boston area?

post #1 of 4

Dr hardiman isnt accepting new patients for my time.

I really dislike my current dr - and I dont think I qualify for midwife care due to some chronic health issues. I delivered at Mt. Auburn but could do NWH fairly easily.

TIA

i think dr hardiman refers people to another doctor at mt auburn who is similar in philosophy. you might try calling and asking for a rec from her. it is something like amy macarigan but i can't quite remember.

Yes! Woman's Health Associates at Newton Wellesly. They are midwives (CNM's) but I wouldn't rule them out...when doing births in hospitals many midwives can co-manage w/ doctors and still provide the ideal of the Midwifery Model of Care when people do have complications of pregnancy. For example, I had pre-eclampsia and my midwife co-managed my care with a team of docs...they never came in my room but were close by in case I needed a c/s or consulting. It really depends upon the practice and stats that they have...and that is why I am recommending to you the WHA or NW because they have good stats. I would arrange an interview with them to talk about your issues, or at least a phone interview, to get an idea.

Good luck! And if you did want to pm me re: what your issue was I could give you a good idea if your issue would preclude you from hospital midwifery care or not.
