I'm a birth activist from Maryland.  My niece is scheduled to have her first baby with Dr. Zhao at the New Generations Birthing Center (i.e. labor and delivery) in Janesville WI this fall.  Any information you  can share about her doctor and hospital would be appreciated.  PMs are fine.

I personally do not have experience with Mercy (the hospital she will deliver at), but have heard many, many things from friends, co-workers, etc.  None of them have been overly positive and many have been negative. 


I hope your niece has better luck!!

I used to work at Mercy in labor and delivery and I agree with PP.  Dr. Zhao is a nice man, but he is an OB and comes with all the general practice ideas as an OB.  Mercy is not progressive.  My number 1 advice I would give your neice if she cannot change providers is get a really experienced doula.
