Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council consisting of local Marple and Newtown parents, take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
This week's question:
Q: I want to switch my doctor before I get pregnant. What are some of the best obstetrics and gynecology practices in the area?
Answer from Bretany Pilko (mother of 2): I switched to Main Line Women's Health when I was about two months pregnant, and was having a difficult pregnancy and not getting the help I needed. They brought me in and made the transition seemless. All of the doctors are amazing and as a mom who had a high-risk pregnancy, this was the group I needed to be with. I have a lot of friends who go here and we all have different favorite doctors.
Answer from Lindsey Keys (mother of 1, and pregnant with number 2): Main Line Women's Health–there are five doctors in the practice, and all are wonderful to see. They have three locations–Plymouth Meeting, Rosemont, Malvern and they deliver at Bryn Mawr, which is an amazing hospital filled with outstanding nurses and caretakers.
Answer from Susan M. (mother of 2): I love my practice Dr. McConnell and Associates. They have offices in Paoli and Lankenau and deliver babies in Lankenau. They have always done right by me, I highly recommend them.
Answer from Merrie (mother of 3): I love Dr. Castelli and Dr. Hirschman. A lot of my friends who are L&D nurses use them too.
Answer from Sarah Grossman (mother of 2): I love my OB, Dr. Norman Brest at Lankenau, but would have had a mid-wife if I could have.
Answer from Stephanie Latchford (mother of 2): I love Women for Women OB-GYN at Lankenau Hospital. They delivered both of mine and I had a great experience with them both times. Plus, I really liked being familiar with the hospital due to having my appointments there.
