Hi - I am an RN & IBCLC in Ohio - and I work at the hospital where Dr Whittington did his residency. I thought he was a great doc. Our hospital is a LevelIII facilty & many high risk pts. It tends to not be natural birth friendly - at all. All of the residents - no matter what pre-resident notions they have - end up conforming to the rut - at least while here. I actually went to another facility for birth #2 b/c of just that.
That being said - he did work w/ a population of Amish and there are natural births that happen at our facility - they just need SUPPORT (doula, etc) and determination.
I'm not sure what he's been doing since his residency - once the docs get out of the "rut" - there are all kinds of possibilities.
Sorry if this wasn't the post you were looking for. But I really did like working w/ him; he was a very nice man.
