Feedback on Paula Greer, CNM?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My midwife is not currently practicing and I need to find someone for well-woman care.  I just found out there's a CNM at the BWMC not 5 minutes from my house, Paula Greer, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with her.  I'd love any feedback you could give me!

I could go back to Bay Area but I'm not an enormous fan of that group and I'd prefer to go somewhere closer to my home if possible.

Thanks!

I know this is a little late but Paula is AMAZING! She was my midwife throughout my pregnancy (ultimately i had to have a c-section) but she delivered my niece and was just great! I can't say enough great things about her.

Hijacking this thread a bit...I had never heard of bwmc until they recently started running commercials on tv. Does anyone else have experience birthing there? Their website lists a ton if info I've never seen on a typical hospital site. The info on preeclampsia and vbac I notc because those are the two that apply to me. I can't find any c-section or vbac stats for em on the unnecessarian or ican. Did they change their name or something? Their website says they've been around since 1970s.

Some forums I stumbled on said the place was awful, but perhaps they're reinventing themselves with the new commercials and all.

Anyone know the scoop?

BWMC was north arundel hospital until maybe 5 years ago then the name change with joining with U of Md. They stopped delivering in the 1970s and just opened their L+D unit 2.5 Years ago.

I had a homebirth midwife tell me that she couldn't take me on as a VBAC because she didn't want to jeopardize her relationship with local hospitals. She's a great midwife and I understood, even though I didn't like it, her side.

 

That being said, it was tough to hear. I will not lie and say that my heart felt like it was breaking into pieces.

 

Are you sure it's ok to post negative things about a midwife on here? I know it's all fact but I've had posts deleted for less. Hope it's "ok" here - wish we didn't have to "censor" here. :(

I'm not saying you should not share your opinion, not at all, only suggesting that posts which share a negative review of a provider tend to get moderated as against TOU ... or something ... of the site.

 

I think the powers that be like those to go on the reviews page and not in the forums. But they haven't said anything, so I guess it is ok.

She works out of the practice I go to and I will be meeting her today.  I was actually on a search for birthing reviews from BWMC.  Anyone have any?  I am 32 weeks today and am a FTM.  So far I am not too nervous.  I love my doctor and the only negativity I have experienced is the sonographer at the hospital.  I went there for my nT scan and Anomaly scan.  Doctor was fine for the NT scan but had a terrible bedside manner when I returned for both of my anomaly scans....

Im a FTM and had a wonderful experience at BWMC I switched to the bwmc midwives' practice at 35 weeks because I was unhappy with my previous caregivers and all three of them were more than happy to help me have the low tech birth I wanted. Kathleen o'Brian ended up being the one at the hospital when I went in to labor and she along with the nurses were fantastic and followed my birth plan of laboring in the tub without any intervention. A few things postpartum weren't great, first, the LC only works weekdays. DS was born Friday afternoon so I only met her once. another problem i had with the hospital is the food, it was beyond horrible, so I'd suggest bringing something I'm happy to talk about my experience if you want to pm me
