I am planning a homebirth (it is right around the corner) and since I am new to Whitestone, Queens and Queens as a whole, I have been interviewing local peds I found off of google maps.
Honestly, it has been truly disappointing. They don't have any clients with homebirths and they act as if they cannot figure out what a midwife does. They are also really medically oriented from the get-go.
Does anyone know of a doctor in this area who would be welcoming us for a first visit and from then on?
I would like to travel, but not as far as Manhattan or Brooklyn. Of course, if I have to, I will. But I am hoping that natural mothering has spread to this part of town.
P.S. Our insurance is Aetna.
