Anyone delivered/delivering at U of M??

I just had to switch OBs and now I'm delivering at U of M. I don't know anyone who's delivered there, so I'd love any insight!

Re: Anyone delivered/delivering at U of M??

  • I delivered at U of M.  I had a good experience.  They followed my birth plan and did everything I wanted.  The lactation consultants are very helpful and so are the nurses.  I'd deliver there again.
  • Great to hear! Thank you for responding!

     I also love the name for your DS.  It is the same as my DH's.

    Royal Oak Beaumont, I still cry thinking about his birth.  UofM is the next closest hospital with higher level NICU.  DS only needed to go to the NICU for a very short period time, but it was nice to know he was in the same hospital as me. 

  • I have heard nothing but good things about U-M. In case you get a backup, Tracy Anderson (Nurse Midwife) is amazing (assuming she's still there).
  • My sister delivered her daughter at U of M this past March, although as both a mom already and her big sister...I was not fond of the fact that they kept her in bed and on petocine (spelling?) for almost 3 days straight! She ended up needing an emergency c-section due to an infection introduced by nurses checking her constantly! I am planning on delivering there with my daughter, due 12-29-09..but I am skeptical as to the experience...I am much more educated now after her birth experience...I wish you luck and hope we both come out with healthy babies and decent birth experiences!
  • Hi there!

    I delivered my son there 2 years ago, and I plan to have this one there as well.  I ended up having an emergency c-section, and will have another one with this baby.  Overall I had a good experience there~~ really listened to what we wanted to do rather than just tell us what we needed to do. What I liked most about it was that it was state of the art, and had all the best resources.
