Hi, y'all. I'm Page, due in February, and I have a 16 month old son. I've been seeing Lara WIlliams over at Everywoman's Health and delivered my boy at Emanuel (fabulous experience with a really f-ed up labor). Just found out my employer is switching to Kaiser for insurance.
I'm sweating finding a new doctor and birthing center. My ideal hospital would allow water birth, minimal intervention and have a NICU on site, yet be close to NE Portland, and I would love recs for a new OB. Of course, i'll go out and do hospital tours and such, but so far i'm not finding a ton of current stats and comparisons on the web, so I thought i would come here and ask if anyone had any advice.
I already checked in and got a breast pump via my current insurance provider and the health care reform, as Kaiser only provides manual pumps. I'd totally advise anyone in a similar situation to do the same.
