Has anyone used this practice in Westwood (Bergen County) to VBAC?<br><br>
What about for a normal vaginal birth?<br><br>
I have read some good things about them but would like to verify with someone who has actually used them.<br><br>
Feel free to PM me.<br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

Do you want to say where they are located, in case that helps people identify them? I know many Doctors are in groups and it's hard to remember who goes where and who you've seen...

I wish I had some feedback on those docs... have you tried calling your local ICAN leader? <a href="http://www.icanofnj.com" target="_blank">www.icanofnj.com</a>

I am super interested in what people have to say about this too, since I'll need a VBAC should I have a second....

I don't know anything about their practice but I do know that Dr. Dicker was married to Marla Scott - from Midwives of Denville, so I am assuming (something I probably shouldn't do) that he might be open to VBACS. Wish I had more information. If ICAN is not of help I would suggest contacting a local doula in the area like Kelli DeFlora. Or checking through the DONA website - they usually know all the VBAC Dr.'s and can make a recommendation even if you are not considering using their services for your birth.<br><br>
Good Luck.

Really? Dr. Dicker who delivered my DS #1 at the now-closed Pascack Valley Hospital was married to Betty Tannin-Dicker, a nurse/lactation consultant there. Seems they've been married for a while and were married at a young age. (sorry, not trying to gossip, just making sure that we're talking about the same person)<br><br>
Anyway, if anyone wants to know my experience with this practice, feel free to PM me. It was my first birth (induction resulting in vaginal birth), so I don't have any personal info on VBACs. I do remember his card saying that he did VBACs, but that was over 3 years ago...
