I live in Deerfield and I'm due October 7th :-)
I'm going to WDH in Dover because I have heard a few bad things about Concord Hospital.
Didn't know this board exsisted. But I am due with baby #5 in End of Feb beginning of March (depending on multiples) Did Injectables.
I've delevered at Elliott and at Parkland, and so far Parkland was better.
Congrats to all.
TigerlilyBaby2013:Hi there....do you mind if I ask what you've heard about Concord Hospital? I have had many friends go through them and I haven't heard any bad reports. I have to have a c-section, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.....thank you!!
A friend of mine had a baby there 2 years ago, so maybe my info is out dated... but here's the story:
She and her in-laws do not get along and it was made very clear to them before the delivery that they were not welcome in her delivery room until after she and baby were cleaned up and ready for visitors. She and her husband were very specific with their nurses who was allowed in while she was in labor (her mother and sister only.) Apparently there was no screening process at the front desk of L&D. Her in-laws walked right in, gave the person at the front desk the mother's name and the room was pointed out to them with no questions asked (up and until that point they didn't know her room number.) Her father in-law walked in while she was practically naked and in the middle of pushing. It was a struggle for her husband to help her in the middle of delivering and get his parents out at the same time.The nurses also at that point didn't seem to care at all about what was going on with in-laws even though there appeared to be extras that weren't doing anything.
I prefer locked L&D floors. At Wentworth-Douglas they don't even
unlock the door for guests until the nurse calls your room and you
approve the visitor.
In general, my friend said she only had one good nurse at Concord Hospital and the rest were all full of attitude or unwilling to listen to her and answer her questions. She told me that it just wasn't a 'patient friendly" hospital to have a baby. As far at their technology and capability to take care of baby and mom go, she said they were great.
Yep! It's under construction... it's a new Maternity Ward with a homey feel... or at least that's what all the WDH fliers are saying it will be...
It's opening in January 2013... If I am a week late, I could make it...
Thanks for your input. I think I'm leaning towards Exeter. I've heard some really good things. I'm surprised about Portsmouth. I didn't think they were that reputable. Good to know. Maybe I'll check them out.
Thanks again and good luck to you!
