<i><span style="color:#FF0000;">Can anyone help me...<br>
I've had one baby here in a Queens hospital. I'd rather not repeat the experience and am utterly desperate to give birth in a less medical and drug induced way. What are my options?</span></i><br><br>
There seem to be no Queens Midwifery practices such as Manhattan Midwives or The Park Slope Midwives. Home birth is not an option for us.<br><br>
How do birthing centres work ? Are there any in Queens?<br><br>
Why are there no midwives in the hospitals at weekends and at nights?<br><br>
Has anyone else refused drugs whilst in labour?<br><br>
Do I have to have the ridiculous elastic band around me to hold the monitor on?<br><br>
Has anyone had access to their medical records after giving birth to find out exactly what was administered and what happened?<br><br>
I'm due December 25th.

Post this on the New York tribal area.<br>
There are plenty of Queens folks.<br><br>
There are resources for you to have a normal birth.<br><br>
Most of the resources for queens are on Long Island.<br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Long Island</span><span style="font-family:Arial;">Birthing center</span><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;">(516) 752-BABY</span><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;">1895 Old Walt Whitman Road</span><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Melville</span><span style="font-family:Verdana;">,</span> <span style="font-family:Verdana;">NY</span><span style="font-family:Verdana;">11747</span><br><br><br><a href="http://www.gaiamidwives.com/" target="_blank"><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="color:#800080;">http://www.gaiamidwives.com/</span></span></a><br><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">The</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">y</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">deliver at</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">Nassau</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">University</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">y</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">Medical</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">Center</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">where the</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">y</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">specialize in <b>Water Birth</b> and VBAC.</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">One of the midwives Dale also attends births at</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">Huntington</span><span style="font-family:Helvetica;">Hospital</span> <span style="font-family:Helvetica;">and in-home births.</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">This is a list of the midwives on LI</span><br><a href="http://www.longislandmidwives.com/midwife_practices_on_long_island.htm" target="_blank"><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="color:#800080;">http://www.longislandmidwives.com/midwife_practices_on_long_island.htm</span></span></a><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">If you want a homebirth all NYC home birth midwives attend births in Queens.</span><br><a href="http://www.nyhomebirth.com" target="_blank"><span style="font-family:Arial;">www.nyhomebirth.com</span></a><br>
