Congrats! Are you in the city or suburbs? If you’re in the suburbs, highly recommend Newton Wellesley Hospital for delivery and affiliated OBs

Congrats to you too!!! I’ll check her out :)

This is who my wife uses and she loves her. We just delivered our first in early April: http://myobgynboston.com/ She is on call at BIDMC, which was an ok place for delivery. Everything you need, but very dated.

THANK YOU!

Prami Yadiv is the best OB in Boston

Consider midwives!! If you’re south end/ southie/ or a south shore suburb like Milton/west Roxbury / Quincy the south shore hospital midwives are amazing

Dr. Okumura. She has a great personality! And congrats

EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week.

Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?

My dad passed away 10 years ago.He was a “good”dad while alive (not the best husband). I spent lot of my youth/adult life fixing his mistakes after he died, which weren’t mine to fix. While I have tried to forgive him for myself, the relationship with his memory is complicated. Our family friends (husband and wife) who really were there for us in every sense after his death came to visit. That “uncle” is the closest thing to a father that I have. Today, I really wished he had been my father.

Women who are not getting the Covid vaccine because they are afraid of infertility or the effect on pregnancy - do you mind sharing your reasons why?
