Please provide your insight, experiences and thoughts on which or another hopsital in NYC you would recommend.
I gave birth at Mt Sinai, experience was excellent. If you do choose to give birth there, be aware that there is a floor that has not been renovated which means that the rooms are not as nice as the renovated ones. My husband and I splurged on a private room but I would have been happy to share. The hospital is very pro bf and will even call you to get your permission to feed the baby in the nursery via a cup if a feeding is required.
I was at the birth of my friends daughter at NY Presbyterian-Cornell 2 years ago and the delivery rooms were very very nice, much bigger than the ones at Mt Sinai. I ultimately chose MT sinai because I love my ob's and several of my friends had given birth to preemies and the NICU unit was highly recommended. My ob is dr amaru, brasner and blumberg, all women practice, very laid back as well.
You wont go wrong with either one! Good luck!
I noticed that you asked about OB's.
here are other recommended practices, Dr Adler's (m) practice affiliated with Mt sinai
Dr Boester (f), affiliated with NY Pres-cornell
Thank you fungster for your detailed experience. I really appreciate it.
I am hoping to get pregnant by the end of this year. So I am trying to line everything up in terms of the right obgyn and affiliation with a good hospital.
Thanks again for your feedback!
I gave birth at NY Pres and loved it. The birthing rooms are beautiful, the nurses were incredible and my recovery room was awesome. I had a private room that overlooked the east river. My pregnancy also turned high risk while I was in delivery - I was in labor for 38 hours. I truly believe that under any other hospital's care I would have ended up with a c-sec. But my patient, skilled and exceptional doctors made sure that I had a healthy vaginal birth. I can't say anything negative about the experience and I would never give birth anywhere else. I used the in-house doctors at NY Pres and I LOVED them. GL!
