what do you think?

Hello Ladies, What do you think of Pennsylvania Hospital (not University of Penn Hosp.) for Delivery? This is the one that I am thinking about but I wanted to get other's opinions on it.

 Thanks!

Re: what do you think?

  • Its where I am going to deliver, my neighbor and good friend just delivered there she had a good experience.  They use the laborist method so sometime it will not be your ob who delivers you there.  My doc has admitting rights at the hospital so if she is available she will be there, but my neighbor doc's did not have admitting rights and she was delivered by the laborist staff, but she said they were great and I guess they should be since all they do is deliver.  Rooming in with your baby is strongly encouraged as is breast feeding so if you don't want either of those it might not be the right chioce.  Last Pennsylvannia hospital offers the option of pavillion suites we have reserved one they are like hotel rooms where you are guaranteed a private room after delivery (main reason we did it) but also includes better food and other amenities.  Let me know if you have any questions I didn't answer.  Good luck :)

    This is exactly what I am looking for... I want to breast feed and I want my baby to stay with me in the room. :o) Thanks!

  • I delivered there, well actually I had a C-section.  I didn't want to have a C-section but I guess it was the way to go.  After the procedure, my husband and baby were with me in the recovery area, which was awesome.  A lot of hospitals keep the baby away from the mother in recovery.  We lucked out and got a private room, so my husband was able to sleep over with no problems.  The lactation support is awesome (I'm still breastfeeding!) and all the nurses were really nice.  I think that if you are agreeable to a regular hospital birth, this is a great place.  I wanted a natural birth, with my midwife, which did not work out in the end.  I think Bryn Mawr seems to be the best place for natural (med free) birth.  Next time I might do a home birth, cuz I don't want to get cut again!!
