I'm usually lurking/posting on the Second Trimester Board, but I have a question for any ladies who have had or are having a baby while stationed at Travis AFB:
I do NOT want to have my baby at DGMC. I've just had so many wretched experiences with the hospital, and such inconsistent care from a different physician each time I've had an appointment thus far. I even had a referral to an out of town specialist for some critical condition and when I got to the specialists they said I was perfectly fine and really didn't need to be there. I just don't want my baby coming into the world in this environment, and I don't want to deal with that stress when I should be focusing on L&D.
Have any of you Travis ladies opted to give birth at North Bay, the nearest network provider? How was the care? I only know one lady who gave birth there (DGMC told her she was delivering three weeks premature, and since they have no neonatal unit they sent her to NB. NB told her that her baby was right on time, haha). She said that she loved the experience, but she had an epidural and I'm going the natural route.
If you did opt out of DGMC, how'd you handle it with TRICARE? I'm on prime but DH and I are willing to switch me to Standard if necessary...I just really need some opinions and input here. Help!
Thanks so so much
