Also the office won't induce until 2 weeks AFTER your due date. That was a relief to me! And the MW lets you do anything. If you want an epidural go for it if you don't she's game. Also the doctor over her is Dr Kells. He is top 100 doc in Phoenix I believe and will do anything to keep you from having a C section or so I am told by the many storied told in our group. It was really assuring to me.

I seriously can not talk enough about Ramona and the experience I had!!!!


GL mamma!

Ohmygosh, I LOVE this practice. Ramona is incredible, we saw her during a bunch of our visits. Tiffany ended up delivering (also at Mercy Gilbert) and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. I can't wait to go back for our next baby

Thank you!
i'm super late to this party, but i have a consult tomorrow with a midwife at bethany women's center (formerly bethany birth center). she's come very highly recommended, her name is lynette casey. from what i understand they're very supportive of vbac's (there's actually a monthly class on them at their office). they deliver at phoenix baptist, which is very supportive of natural birth (and they have jetted labor tubs in each room ). i toured on thursday and really liked it. they also have midwives on staff there as well. i'll update and let you know how it goes!

I've had a few friends work with Lynette. One even named her daughter after her b/c she had such a great experience.

I have 2 friends who have used and LOVED Dr. Brass. Dr. Brass and my OB are great friends and my OB delivered her babies. Dr. Brass is very pro natural birth and I'm pretty sure she'll do VBAC's as well.

She is off of Country Club and Baseline.

Re: Need a good OB in Arizona please?

I lived in the West Valley but had NO luck finding a VBAC/natural friendly dr so I went to Good Sam's (which I did NOT like) BUT I loved my dr. Sharron Thompson. From what I know the East Valley is more "naturally" friendly-nearly everyone that I knew that CD'ed lived over there versus the West Valley!

Also-when you find a good dr, also make sure the hospital works well with them as well. I had a TERRIBLE nurse and though Good Sam's seemed to be "natural friendly" my nurse hated everything about my delivery and intentionally messed everything up.

Good Luck and I hope you find an awesome dr! I have heard wonderful things about the hospitals further East. I also had a great doula. (Rose Day) and say hello to AZ for me-I miss it there!

Re: Need a good OB in Arizona please?

I know I'm late to this post, but wanted to add to it!

I see Dr. Linnerson out of Contemporary Care for Women, the Tempe office at McClintock and Guadalupe. I saw/interviewed him for the first time fully-clothed in his office, which was great! I had to be induced at 41 1/2 weeks, but he knew we wanted to avoid Pitocin and epidural. He did prostaglandin (a topical to help ripen my cervix) for 14 hrs, then broke my water. He gave me time to progress and said that as long as I was progressing well, he would not give me Pit. We were able to have a natural birth! I delivered at Banner Desert and the nurses there were absolutely fantastic and supportive; nobody ever even suggested an epidural!

As for VBACs, because Contemporary Care for Women has 24/7 on call docs at Banner Desert, they will do them. One of our nurses had a successful one with one of the other docs there.
