how are the midwives at Geisinger Medical Center?
Where in PA are you looking?
One midwife at the Dallas Geisinger clinic is insistant that I need to have a c/s and a midwife at the Wilkes-Barre office told me Friday that I'm hypoglycemic and then Saturday the ER doctor told me that that was impossible because my blood sugar is awesome all the way back to 2010. He actually said, "I'm not sure who's chart she was looking at but it wasn't yours!".
So unfortunately, I've had some negative experiences with them in the NEPA area.
To be fair, whatever midwife it was that was present for my sons birth back in 2010 was amazing. They're not all bad here. I don't remember her name and I don't know if she's even still there but she tried to make me as comfortable as possible. She was my only positive experience with a Geisinger midwife (so far) and I had forgotten about her when I was posting before.
Hopefully other's have some more feedback for you. :)
I wanted to update this because of what recently happened. I'm going to say proceed with caution. Last Friday, I was threatened with a court order if I do not consent to a repeat c-section. The doctor made it abundantly clear that the entire practice would seek one if I show up in labor and am still refusing a section.
He is quite serious and says his practice has done this before- so please tell them to be very careful if they choose to birth at geisinger.
It's for a vba3c and I ended up getting some legal advocacy (the internet can be an amazing place) and between the advocates and one particularly awesome OB that I had never met before, I've been officially informed that no court order will be sought and they will not turn me away when I present in labor. So now, I will just sit back, relax, and try to enjoy that last 2ish weeks of my pregnancy. :)
