I will be delivering at Newton Wellesley, and want to use midwives. I found Women's Health Associates (WHA) and made an appointment with them. But friends have since recommended Harvard Vanguard midwives. Anyone have suggestions as to which practice to go with? Thanks!
Newton Wellesley Midwives - WHA or Harvard Vanguard?
I don't know about the other place, but I loved Harvard Vanguard when I went to them 2 years ago. I was at the Kenmore square office and saw Ashley, she was awesome. I also had to see a bunch of the other ladies towards the end there and I felt like there was great continuity between them all, which was nice. They really stood behind me and helped to make sure I had the birth that I wanted, even when things got dicey at the end. I delivered at BWH.
I'm due in May with my first, so can't comment on the birth support but chose to go with WHA. I met two of the midwives there and we just clicked. It has been a good relationship so far. They have a meet and greet open hose where you can stop by and ask questions and meet one of them (once a month?) which is definitely worth dropping in.
I know this thread is getting older, but I wanted to chime in: I went to WHA and loved it. I really liked that it is so small. I got to meet all the midwives - I had appointments with each of them. (I had previously been with BWH midwives and had a bad experience with one of the midwives that I had not met, so I decided that it was important for me to know everyone before delivery.)
