How impossible is it to get in with Donna at MJH right now??? I'm 5 weeks pregnant, had a homebirth with my last, but financially I just can't swing it this time She's my best bet, but I know she's super hard to get in with....do I even have a chance????



SO, she's already booked. Who else can I use????

All you can do is call and find out. The sooner, the better.

Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.

I've often wondered if she has many clients drop after 12 weeks due to early miscarriages. I contemplated checking to see if I could possibly switch, but I was pretty happy with Dr. Wolanski and stuck with him.

I just had my baby last month and I used her partner, Dr. Wolanski. I was very happy with him - he does not encourage a lot of intervention and I really trusted him and felt secure with the decisions we made regarding my birth. He was very respectful of what I wanted and his nurses are just wonderful.


He is all business at first, but he does warm up Congrats on your pregnancy!

: I went with Dr. Wolanski because Donna was already booked, too.

He's not bad as far as intervention goes. We had a situation where Dr. Wolanski had reason to do an emergency c-section but instead sent us for one more ultrasound which showed that we didn't need it. (Whew!)

I asked if I could be put on a waiting list in case some of the other pregnancies didn't work out I was told that I wasn't able to, but I could keep checking back......



and see, the problem is, I'm a L&D nurse, so I know the inner workings of the hospital. I just don't want to fight my whole labor to get what I want (even though I know I could get the birth I want, I just don't want to spend my energy fighting or being hypervigilant when my energy would be better spent focusing on other things)
