Dicker/Giambalvo in NJ for VBAC?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Has anyone used this practice in Westwood (Bergen County) to VBAC?

What about for a normal vaginal birth?

I have read some good things about them but would like to verify with someone who has actually used them.

Feel free to PM me.

Thanks!

Do you want to say where they are located, in case that helps people identify them? I know many Doctors are in groups and it's hard to remember who goes where and who you've seen...

I wish I had some feedback on those docs... have you tried calling your local ICAN leader? www.icanofnj.com

I am super interested in what people have to say about this too, since I'll need a VBAC should I have a second....

I don't know anything about their practice but I do know that Dr. Dicker was married to Marla Scott - from Midwives of Denville, so I am assuming (something I probably shouldn't do) that he might be open to VBACS. Wish I had more information. If ICAN is not of help I would suggest contacting a local doula in the area like Kelli DeFlora. Or checking through the DONA website - they usually know all the VBAC Dr.'s and can make a recommendation even if you are not considering using their services for your birth.

Good Luck.

Really? Dr. Dicker who delivered my DS #1 at the now-closed Pascack Valley Hospital was married to Betty Tannin-Dicker, a nurse/lactation consultant there. Seems they've been married for a while and were married at a young age. (sorry, not trying to gossip, just making sure that we're talking about the same person)

Anyway, if anyone wants to know my experience with this practice, feel free to PM me. It was my first birth (induction resulting in vaginal birth), so I don't have any personal info on VBACs. I do remember his card saying that he did VBACs, but that was over 3 years ago...
