Woman Centered C Sections
 
Hi Ladies!
I am working on compiling a list of places that will allow you to hold baby in the OR so that other women, me included, can use those facilities over ones which will not allow you to hold the baby. Hopefully this will allow more woman to have a positive CS experience if they need one. I developed PTSD after the birth of my last baby because we were separated for a long time, without any information. My hope is that another woman does not have to go through that.

Thank you in advance!

So far I have found the following hospitals:
Fort McMurray, Alberta Canada
Hendricks County Hospital, Danville, IN
Memorial West, Pembroke Pines, FL
Maimonides Med Center, Brooklyn NY with help of Midwives from Brooklyn Birthing Center
Brandon Hospital, Brandon, FL
Riverside Methodist, Columbus OH
Carolinas Medical Center - Pineville, Charlotte NC
Sparrow Hospital, Lansing, MI
Saddleback Memorial in Laguna Hills Ca

I have no info but :hugs: thanks for doing this - it's so important that whatever the reason a woman has a c/s she gets that bonding time with her babe!

Thanks for your support! I was so surprised that a list like this doesn't exist anywhere. I don't think that the facilities understand what a wonderful 'selling point' this would be for woman. I also don't think that enough woman know that it can be done safely. My first OB said that it can't be done 'safely'. I think that a lot of OB are trained in 'old' ways and aren't aware how to think outside of the box. I also don't think that they are aware of how much harm they are doing to some woman by continuing to use the standard methods. They don't see these since by the time they are truly apparent the woman has been release from the hospital.

Thank you for the info! Have you found anyone in Richmond who will do a woman centered CS? That would be closer to me than some of the other places.

While both the docs in richmond I know are vety much for natural childbirth snd support vbacs (even high risk like me) I believe dr. diaz also does csections. I am sure she would be open to doing one your way. She is extremely for the momma. I would call them ask to talk to abbi dini who is the birth venter director and she will link u up wth dr. diaz. Dr diaz and dr carpenter openec a freestanding birth center but do deliveries right next door at hospital also. I will b n hospital n case I neef a csection. I encourage u to call dr. diaz. If she cant do one I bet she knows who will! the number is 804 320 4967

I had a client who delivered at Windham Hosptial in CT. It ended in a c-section because of breech presentation. She had requested from her Dr (Mansfield OBGYN Dr Gildersleeve - very pro natural birth and pro VBAC) to hold the baby during her OR stay and she was able to do just that. It was the best case scenario for her!

I really think that at times it has more to do with the OB delivering and not just the hospital. So, feel free to add that hospital and Dr to the list. I've heard not so great things about that hospital but awesome things about that Dr in particular. HTHs
