I just read the thread asking about CNM's in south jersey who were holistic minded. Aside from Philly area practices there were no suggestions. I am wondering if any ob practice and hospital here in South Jersey is considered to be more flexible and open to natural birth choices.
I have had two hospital births, and haven't been impressed. It's been a fight each time. I was even kicked out of Kennedy Turnersville for declining EFM when i arrived at 1:00 am. However, I did meet the greatest hospital birth midwife ever, who was on call 12 hours later and saved the day, Sarah Applby-Wineberg. She is on sabbatical this year, so, trying to work with her is not an option.
So... while i figure out if we can afford a homebirth, i would like to get some prenatal care from a conscious human being, somewhat close by, regardless of their status with the AMA. Any suggestions?
