I got a nice call today from a reader of The MotherHood. She is a new to the magazine and thought I might be able to help her find a pediatrician who will meet her where she is and will listen to her concerns respectfully. I shared with her my experiences of our family pediatrician, also a columnist for the magazine. I gave her other names as well.
We chatted a bit and she told me that her first three births were in a (now closed) NYC birthing center and that her last birth was at home...with the same midwife who attended me at my own last birth...small world!
