Hi! Can anyone recommend a midwife, OB/GYN or other practitioner for basic GYN care? I live in Chelmsford, right near Lowell, but I am willing to travel a bit.
I really need to find someone gentle and patient. I had a very traumatic experience with the practice I was with when my son was born, and I haven't been back since (he turned 2 in September), so it's time for a check-up.
I had a great experiece with The North Shore Birthcenter in Beverly. Unfortunately I was not able to deliver at the Birthcenter as I planned but I ended up having a wonderfull experience at Beverly Hospital. My two year old loved the visits at the Center, a very relaxed atmosphere.
Thanks for your suggestions! Any more? I really just need to see someone for routine healthcare, like a Pap smear and check up. Thanks to my last experience, I won't be having a baby in the forseeable future, but that's another story. I just need someone I can trust to be gentle with me -- even a NP or PA in a family practice, anyone any of you helpful mamas have found to be nice, gentle, and had a good experience with. Any stories of good care for pediatrics, family practice and adult healthcare are welcome, too.
