I was told you Mama's over here are very helpful so I came and joined the forum and hope you can help me
Not too long ago I had an absolutely horrific experience at Moses Taylor Hospital. I will probably post the story when I have more time but it involved the doctor lying to me about my health to get me to okay an unnecessary procedure, that he promptly did without following proper pain management protocols immediately after I gave birth to my dd. I now have ptsd to thank for it and rape victim type symptoms.
Needless to say I need to find a new doc. I plan on having more kids in the near future and would like to find a new doc now before I get preg. I know birthing options are scarce in this area. I'm about 30 min's from MTH and 30 min's from Wayne Memorial and about 45 mins. from Geisinger. I won't go to MTH unless that's my only option. I know it's not their fault that my doc was incredibly dishonest but I also wasn't thrilled with their hospitals guidelines (ex I wasn't allowed to hold my dd for 45 min's or so after birth irregardless of apgar scores of 9 and 10. She needed to get warm by the light not her Mama's arms. and other things like that. ) or the fact that their nurse lied about the "procedure" that the doc did in my records.
So what are my options.....I would prefer a homebirth but would rather utilize my insurance company first. These are my options for CNM's
Elaine Richards-Hercher , CNM
Shelley Rosenberg , CNM
Patricia Ann Konzman , CNM
I've got Geisinger Ins and have OB/GYN options but I WILL NOT ever step foot in a Physician's Health Alliance practice again.
Any recommendations from the list of CNM's, or any good OB/GYN's in the area? How about homebirthing midwives that come to this area? And if there is a homebirthing midwife is there an OB/GYN that is friendly to midwives to act as a backup?
I'm so sorry that this post is so long but not knowing my birthing options out there is keeping me up at night along with other problems from the PTSD. I think if I know there are some good options out there I might start to be able to heal from this.
