What was your pediatrician's reaction to the news that your baby was born at home? Did you receive any difficulty or negative opinions from your pediatrician or the staff in the office?

I'm going to a more natural pedi- I have it narrowed down to two or three possibilities, and no, I don't expect anyone to have a problem with it. One in particular takes I'd say about 5-8 homebirth babies per month!

Nope, Danes doctor is a holistic doctor. She also came recommended by my midwife to do my blood work and we just decided to keep using her for Dane after he was born. I would have used the doctor my older son goes to but he wasn't accepting anymore patients.

Our family practice doc who does all of our pedi stuff is on board with me having our baby at home. He's very supportive.

my pedi also runs a clinic that offers homebirth midwives, so I'm not worried

I'm not sure how our pediatrician will react. But, the family doctor dh and I go to was fine when I mentioned it, so I think I'll just bring the baby to her. We've talked about that and not vaccinating and she was like "as long as you're okay with it and have done your research". So... I might be switching all my kids over there.

We didn't get our homebirth, but our ped is super supportive and even comes to the house for the first visit within 48 hours.

My pedi was referred by our midwives group. He is all for homebirth! I still drive almost an hour to take the kiddos to him!

we took Cadie to a holistic RN after she was born, and then we switched to a holistic MD after we moved to Massachusetts. I drive about 45 minutes to see her. It's not always convenient but she only does well visits every 6 months so unless she is sick enough to go in we don't make too many trips. I usually don't mind because it gives me an excuse to go to Boston.

I also like seeing her because she only schedules one person at a time and there isn't a long wait sitting in a room with potentially sick people, ya know?

DS was born at a birth center, but Pedi didn't really care. He just wondered how you go about a transfer in case of an emergency. I'm sure that he'd have the same question for a home birth. He just found it all interesting, then went on with the newborn exam.

I'm about to find out tomorrow. DS has a check up, and as that particular office fills up pretty fast, I want to get this new little one on their list of new patients!

So I told my pedi today and she didn't even blink. She just said that when the baby is born, call the office to make an appointment for when the baby is a week old. She did reiterate that she could only see the baby after birth if we went to the city hospital, but she didnt really push a hospital birth, just to be clear that I couldn't expect her to see the baby before the week mark
