She is at New Dawn Midwifery. This is our New Dawn Review

We would not recommend New Dawn to anyone. As a matter of fact, run for the hills.

We were disappointed with New Dawn in every way. At best, we found them cold and aloof and at worst verbally abusive and physically rough. They never made us feel cared for and cared about. To us, every doctor has been warmer and gentler. We both became more and more uncomfortable over time to the point where the stress their treatment was not conducive to good health. To us, the entire experience was extremely clinical in a disorganized manner and at times downright abusive.

Furthermore, we found them to be terrible listeners. We told them that the original date of conception that they set was not possible but they paid no attention. We subsequently were sent to our first ultrasound too late and our due date was adjusted by a full month. This put us past the date to check for Down??s Syndrome in the Ultrasound and led to our decision to have amniocentesis. This is when we started to become concerned but stupidly, we did not speak up. We wanted to go for this first ultrasound earlier but erroneously, they said not to.

Looking back at the last month or so, we realize that speaking up was not well received and we probably sensed this. Asking questions got us an irate tongue lashing, just what a six month pregnant woman needs. Even answering questions got us a tongue lashing.

The owner snapped at us for answering the question she asked. Jan asked how we felt about home birth and we said that??s what we wanted. Jan said, ??I have a problem with people like you that won??t go to the hospital.? She went into a long tirade about homebirth. We had to explain that we never said that we wouldn??t go to the hospital just that we preferred a home birth but if there were problems of course we would go to Mission.

We may as well have been patients of MAHEC as we went there after almost every appointment, some of which was due to New Dawn??s aloof disinterested care and not listening to us about the date of conception.

We felt the treatment became more and more problematic as we got to know the midwives. Meg gave such a vigorous exam that it caused me to scream in pain. When we told her to be gentle, she said, ??A baby??s coming out of there anyway.? She showed us not the slightest concern for my pain. It was by far, bar none, the most painful exam or experience I have ever had including: amniocentesis, stitches in my face, breaking my foot and all the rest of my life experiences. We were both so shocked that we didn??t speak up or fire them on the spot. We should have.

Later that same midwife, Meg, admonished us like recalcitrant children for asking questions about the necessity of a third ultrasound in less than three months. She said, ??We know what we are doing, maybe you should find a different Midwife,? in a horribly venomous tone. She also said, ??You can do whatever you want but you will be responsible for any problems.? She was so harsh during this conversation that she made me cry at six months pregnant and she never answered our questions. She basically said, do as you are told.

This is when we said enough is enough. At six months, we fired New Dawn and found a different Midwife. The new midwife is warm, welcoming and gentle. We should have fired New Dawn much earlier.
