Hello! My husband and I are due with our second in August '14. We delivered our first (emergency C-sec) at Good Sam's and let me tell you, after all of the wonderful things I had heard about them, I was unimpressed to say the least. I LOVED our labor and delivery nurses. They were fabulous! They made the absolutely terrifying experience of an emergency c-section much better. Sadly, that's all for the good things I have to say about Good Sam's. I was incredibly upset about how rude not one but ALL of our mom & baby nurses were once we moved floors. As young (we were 21), first-time parents having just been through a traumatic experience they were nothing even close to compassionate or even nice. I was and still am very upset about how they all treated us - it definitely tainted our experience. We even brought them a fruit basket and a card and tried to be as courteous as possible. We are clean, educated, middle class, NORMAL people (not that any of that should matter). We were baffled at their treatment. It was to the point where we didn't feel comfortable calling the nurses for ANYTHING.
Anywhoooo, my doctor delivers at both Good Sams and Bethesda North. Knowing that this will be a c-section again, I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice and/or let me know how their deliveries went at Bethesda North. We haven't had the chance to tour the hospital yet and see the facilities so any info would be great! Thank you so much for any input!
