I'm new to the area and planning a pregnancy, so I'm trying to figure out which doctor/hospital to get set up with now. I'm interested in any tips on both local hospitals and OBs! Any great - or terrible - experiences?
For hospitals, it looks like I can choose between MetroWest Medical in Framingham, Milford Regional, Newton-Wellesley, Beth Israel, and Brigham (based on my insurance). I'm not sure how to figure this out! I like the idea of a place that's closer (Framingham and Milford) but I'm also generally interested in making sure the experience will be as good as it can be and I know places like Brigham are really top-notch.
This will be my second pregnancy and delivery and I'm fairly relaxed about things; I'd like a vaginal birth with epidural (PLEASE. I didn't have it last time and once was enough for me!). I had a midwife last time but am not tied to that for this time around. Just looking for a place where you felt like the treatment was good and reliable, the setting was welcoming and up-to-date, and all of the necessary services were provided. Any really strong recommendations or advice for a Franklin-area mom?
Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
