Does anyone know if any Baltimore area hospitals offer mobile telemetry for fetal monitoring? Is there a way to find out other than just calling around?

There is a thread floating around about vbacs in baltimore hospitals.  I believe on that thread it was mentioned that there are 3 hospitals in the state that have mobile telemetry: Mercy, B.W. medical center, and one more. hope that helps you.

For everyone's info: the new building at Mercy which opens in June will have wireless monitoring! Not sure if vbac mamas will be able to go in the tub with it, but at least it will help with mobility. I have an appt with Kathy Slone on Monday, and hopefully I can get more details. The info above was from bobbie at the ICAN meeting.

Baltimore Washington Medical Center has telemetry available, as well as a birthing pool (can't have bub in there though) etc. I UC personally, but when I had to go to the ER for a kidney issue, I inquired about their VBAC policies and spoke to a CNM there about what was available and if telemetry was available.

Mary Knauer at St. Joseph's told me they just did a pilot program with mobile telemetry and they hope to have that in place by the end of this year.
