Hi all--I am newly pregnant and have been going to Penn Fertility Care for the past two years. All of my doctors are within the Penn healthcare system and I'm leaning towards staying within it for an OB GYN. My RE recommended PennCare (at 8th and Spruce). I work in Center City so this is convenient for prenatal appointments. I live in the burbs (in Elkins Park) so it would be a short ride to the city when I deliver, but I'm overall ok with this.
Others have recommended delivering at Abington--because it guarantees a private room and is a bit more catering towards the new mom and family. This would be inconvenient for prenatal appointments but convenient for delivery. I don't know any doctors there and have no experience with Abington hospital.
Any Philly-area moms have an opinion about this? Thanks in advance!
*I am no longer regularly posting on TB because of the fucked up debacle of Jan 2015 when administrators banned long-term members and mods with no notice and completely dismantled a community full of women who cared about each other. If you see me posting it's only to give support to a poster who needs it or to post something important enough that I need to say. I am no longer responding to anything other than issues that affect people who I care about*
