Anyone with Kaiser? Know of any great Ob-Gyns who aren't knife-happy and are cool with natural-ish births, especially VBAC? Would love a few name!!
I loved all my doctors!
My nurse midwife was Erin Dunn. She was very patient with all my questions, and continued answering my questions even after I needed doctor care.
When I got Gestational Diabetes, I was transferred to the care of Dr. Richard Block. He is GREAT. Apparently, he set up the protocols at Kaiser for non-stress tests for babies. He is super friendly, too.
The doctor who delivered my baby was Dr. Nora Haripotepornkul. She goes by Dr. Hari. She was MARVELOUS. After 3.5 hours of pushing and nothing, she told me she would have to do a vacuum-assisted birth. I was so stressed about this. Tearing/episiotomies were my biggest fear about giving birth. The nurses in the room assured me she wasn't aggressive with the vacuum. Sure enough, she was great. I only had a Phase 1 tear. She was very good.
I really liked my treatment at Kaiser. I'm impressed with their facilities, and their personnel.
