I just moved to pasadena 2 months ago and found out today that i'm expecting #2:) but i havent found a doc yet.  i really loved my past doc and the birthing center that i delivered my son in.

 

any great doctors or midwives who support and encourage natural birth? i am actually a little scared about giving birth in a regular hospital so i am looking for a doctor who will stand by my preferences 100%

 

are they out there?  good and bad experiences welcome(so i know who not to go to)

 

thank you!

I can't seem to find any midwives around here that deliver in a hospital.  I am near Pasadena, not in.  But, I had Dr. Joana Tamayo located in Glendale, right off the highway so easy access from Pasadena.  She allowed for me to have a natural birth in the hospital, caring OB though the office follows all routine medical stuff.  I highly recommend her.  I delivered at Verdugo Hills Hospital but it was horrible.  The nurses I had were just terrible and made for an awful experience.  I know Tamayo goes to Glendale Adventist, not sure if she goes to the Huntington.  I know, not much help.  I am looking for a new OB right now that takes Medi-Cal. Tamayo does not.  :(  So sad.
