|Kaiser doesn't do them until 40 weeks unless you are having a problem.|
|i was with kaiser w/ my first and they did them at every visit. i had no problems at all.
(yes, i am still upset about that. )
|WOW! I'm really surprised. I know people who have had babies at Kaiser Santa Rosa, Kaiser Vallejo, Kaiser Redwood City and this is my third at Walnut Creek. NONE of us have had cervical checks until we were at or past our due dates (except one friend who insisted at her 38 week check-up and a woman at my LLL group who was in preterm labor). My cousin had her baby in '95 and this was definitely the case in Santa Rosa then!
My LLL group is always in so thrilled with how Kaiser in this area is because of the extremely low interventions they do and their very positive stance on breastfeeding!
