I know your question is over one year old, so congrats on the baby, and I hope all is well!
I just wanted to give some extra info on Women's Health since you asked about it at least 2x, and I thought I could offer some more info.
Firstly, I've had 3 of my 4 kids at Women's Health. They are excellent and average a 10% c/s rate. One of the OBs told me, "If the midwife can't get the baby out, the baby's not coming out!" The OBs credit the role of the midwives in keeping their c/s rate low. The midwives handle most of the L&Ds, except where a woman has requested a doctor or if there is an emergency.
Women's Health does VBACs in the private rooms, not in the OR. I have a friend who had what she describes as the "perfect" VBAC experience with Women's Health - with a very patient midwife in her own private suite.
To be admitted, a woman needs to be 4cm, otherwise they'll send you home. So, don't worry about spending all day in the hospital in labor. One of the midwives told me about a patient she recently had who wasn't dilating. The OB on-call wanted to give pitocin, and the midwife suggested, "Let's check again in one hour." During that hour, the midwife encouraged the couple to do nipple stimulation, alone, privately. In one hour the OB returned, did his check, and was stunned by the progress, and canceled the pitocin request.
I think the birthing tub is open and able to be used. It was originally to be available almost 4 yrs ago, but red tape held it up. The Women's Health midwives were very excited for it. I was sorry that it wasn't ready when my babies were due. Maybe next baby! With my 4th baby, I arrived 10min before she was born. One of the midwives, who I saw on many appts and with whom I became good friends, was waiting for me when I arrived and exclaimed, "Oh, I'm so happy I'm here for you today!" I can't explain how comforting it is to have truly caring midwives working with you.
As far as prenatal appts go, you can request a CNM or OB. I always requested a CNM for my appts, and I always got one. I never saw an OB with my pregnancies - not even in labor. I never knew which CNM I'd see for my next appt, however, and this could be a drawback for some people, but I didn't find it to be so. Also, don't hesitate to ask to meet all the midwives.
I also declined internal checks, even at my 40-wk appt, without a problem.
They are really friendly at the office, although, that may not be the initial impression you get simply due to how busy they are. I could walk in tomorrow and the secretary would know me by my first name even though it's been nearly two years since my 4th was born.
I've convinced multiple friends to switch to Women's Health after unsatisfactory experiences elsewhere in the Eastern Panhandle, and even in Northern VA. Everyone I personally know has had only good experiences.
Also, regarding previous miscarriage: one of the OBs at Women's Health is trained in NaPro Technology. It IS amazing science. It can treat/prevent: repeated miscarriages, PMS, PPD, PCOS, etc. I personally know several women who work with NaPro doctors to solve/treat their miscarriages, infertility, PPD, etc. I know it works.
