I know there was just a post below about this, and while I remain jealous that there are so many good doctors apparantly at Magee...and a midwife group which I am really jealous of...unfortunately my insurance is Aetna....which leaves me with West Penn or St. Clair. St. Clair is alot closer and I hear all good stuff about it while the opinions on West Penn are mixed. My first pregnancy was a waterbirth with a midwife in a hospital in NJ (which apparantly is not allowed in Pittsburgh), no complications, so I am not very worried about having a level whatever NICU...so I think St. Clair is good. Can anyone recommend an OB/GYN that practices at St. Clair....preferrably someone who supports natural childbirth and won't make my birth experience a medical procedure? I am 9 weeks so I am feeling pressed to choose a doc asap.
Any recommendations for a good doula would also be appreciated as I feel compelled to get one in this situation. I am truely shocked how rare it is to find a midwife that practices at a hospital in this area.
