What is important to me is having the ability to have a natural birth without the doctors/nurses pushing for meds or unnecessary c-section. Would love if they offered midwives..

Answer by ohbabygifts.com
In Brooklyn- Miamonides- they deliver more babies than almost any other hospital in the area. Methodist Hospital is also a good choice.

Don’t forget about Manhattan- NYU, Mount Sinai are two great choices.

In Long Island, LIJ is a great hospital.

I delivered all 3 of mine in NYU. Superb doctors and support staff and they didn’t push for anything I didn’t want. All natural for 3 kids and they averaged 8lbs 6oz. I’m 100lbs, so that’s a big deal.

Conratulations and best of luck.

Normally. the physician or midwife, tell you what hospital they are with, they can even have 2 choices sometimes, they cant just show up at a hospital you select, they are not allowed to. If you just show up, you will not get a fru fru birth, you will be considered an emergency.
Remember, the Dr charges their fee, and the hospital cost is entirely dif. The Dr requires immediate payment, and the hospital bills afterwards, some do require an upfront payment. Its no biggies telling the Dr no drugs, he will only administer live saving if necessary. They dont push, many women tire of the pain!
A hospital is simply a location for a proceedure, that a Dr or Midwife, has an affiliation with, you dont go to the hospital and then find the Dr there.

Answer by Jillian ~*Cohen’s mummy*~
look into a birthing center, you’d be better off at one. some doctors will come up with ANY excuse to get you into a c-section and will either scare you into one or keep pushing it on you. midwives are great but if you birth at a hospital generally those midwives are working under doctors. so really, the doctors have more say.

just found this for ya

Answer by Divine Oubliette
Get a midwife, trust me if you want control of your birth and want it to be natural, get a midwife and do it at home. I had a nurse-midwife in hospital and it was awful. She made an appearance four times, the last time I ever saw her she caught the baby and then left. It was as bad as having a doctor, don’t count on the nurses to help you, they are just there to monitor the baby’s heart rate for liability issues (otherwise they would use a hand-held Doppler but wait that doesn’t record the readings – see liability issues). I even had to argue with the nurses about wearing my own nightgown! The day of your labor and birth belong at home as long as your pregnancy is low risk. I had a low risk, non-medicated, completely natural labor and birth and yet I was traumatized by it because I was in a hospital, I had a midwife that was never there and I had to depend more on my mother-in-law than anyone there at the hospital. Please get a midwife and do it at home, you’ll be much more comfortable there.

Get, beg, buy, steal or borrow one of these books. Even if you choose a hospital birth these books are still great reads. It shows birth as a positive, beautiful and empowering experience.

Consider giving birth upright so that gravity helps instead of having to push a baby up hill out of you (such as giving birth laying flat on your back) Even if you are in a hospital request a squat bar, squatting also allows your pelvic outlet to increase that crucial 1/2 – 1 inch. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.birthdiaries.com/diary/birth061/birth061.21.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.birthdiaries.com/diary/birth061/&usg=__FjFAA9LxTJZzjljpAMCohkNA1Wo=&h=240&w=320&sz=19&hl=en&start=3&tbnid=pGQ7e9fyVyMezM:&tbnh=89&tbnw=118&prev=/images%3Fq%3D%2522squat%2Bbar%2522%2Bbirth%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff

Also check into The Business of Being Born – ti’s a great documentary.
While the United States has perhaps the most advanced health care system in the world, it also has the second-highest infant mortality rate of any industrialized nation, and many have begun to question conventional wisdom regarding the way obstetricians deal with childbirth. While midwives preside over the majority of births in Europe and Japan, fewer than ten percent of American mothers employ them, despite their proven record of care and success. How do American doctors make their choices regarding the way their patients give birth, and who is intended to benefit? Director Abby Epstein and producer Ricki Lake offer a probing look at childbirth in America in the documentary The Business of Being Born, which explores the history of obstetrics, the history and function of Midwives, and how many common medical practices may be doing new mothers more harm than good.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : are childrens horoscopes/readings different than adults?

I have several of my friends addicted to horoscopes becuase for me they are always dead on, but what about my children? Where can I go to get horoscopes or birth charts (for free or relatively inexpensive as I have FIVE children) I would love to be able to share the experience with my children as well especially my older two who can comprehend it all. Any tips on where to go?

Answer by Left-T
The reading is different for children because most of the aspects in their chart are not yet active, especially the squares and trines. For example, Venus and Mars for one. How can you tell about their love life and what they want and desire at a young age? You can project in the future when these planets manifest at age 14 and age 21.

When dealing with children, you need to look at the Moon first since it rules up to age 7. Then comes Mercury which covers a large period, 7 yrs to puberty where it remains active throughout their studies.
Venus, first feelings 14 yrs to 20 yrs is next in line.

The best book for you is to get the Linda Goodman ‘Sun Signs’ which deals with each sign as a child, as an adult, and as a Boss 🙂

Good Luck.. This is a good book for you.

Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,

I had also seen a fantastic amount of water, coming in shortly thereafter. I therefore notified the appropriate government authorities to warn them.
17 Hours after the quake, Hurricane Irene made landfall less than 300 miles from the epicenter of the Earthquake.
Damage estimates from this hurricane, throughout the United States were near $19.6 billion dollars, which made it the 5th costliness hurricane in United States history
The coastlines were evacuated and lives were saved because of this prediction and appropriate warnings.
