This review is for those looking to find a practitioner that supports natural childbirth. Unfortunately, Dr Fink is NOT that person.
Long story short, they lie to their patients and try to manipulate them into doing things their way. If you choose otherwise, they will no longer see you. The office manager called me today to tell me that if I choose to continue working with my chosen doula, I can no longer go to their practice. I am 30 weeks pregnant. I know it sounds unbelievable, but they actually did this!!!
While the midwives here are great, very warm and friendly and willing to work with you to support you, the DR's are not. Unfortunately, the DRs run the practice. The DR's made up lies to get me to fire my doula, telling me she is not allowed at Baptist hospital. I called Baptist and spoke to the head nurse of L&D, who told me that is simply not true.
The DR's also will go on to tell you that birthing in a tub is "risky, promotes tearing, and you have to push on your back". Anyone who knows about natural birth knows this is actually the complete opposite! They do not practice what they promote, which is choice of pushing positions, labor support persons including doula care, rooming in with your baby, etc... BUT, they will definitely tell you what you want to hear just to get you in the door.
All families should have a choice in who you choose to support you in labor. This is NOT the doctors decision. If you are looking for a natural friendly DR, there are honest ones out there. DR Fink and his staff of OBs are not the ones to go to, though. Find a doula or midwife that you work well with and get a referral from them!
