Default Seacoast Female OB/GYN

Hi, I'm new to the area and am in need of a good OB/GYN. I'm also wondering if Portsmouth Regional is my best option for childbirth. We love the area but suddenly find ourselves in a big hurry to figure things out!
Thanks

You could call the Women's Health Associates. They're located at 875 Greenland Rd. in Portsmouth. There's a Dr. Jean Ryan that's there. Give them a call may be? Moderator cut: no posting phone numbers, you can DM the number

Going to Portsmouth Hospital to have your baby is the worst choice. Go to
York Hospital in York, Maine

It would also depend on your health insurance coverage of course. You might not be able to go to a Maine Hospital if you live in New Hampshire, so it depends on your insurance company's policy plan.

By the way, Portsmouth Regional Hospital is highly regarded these days, there staff is wonderful and so isn't there facility, it's been outstanding for a lot of people on the seacoast and beyond. I do understand from friends that York Hospital has quite a fantastic facility as well. Yet, it will still depend on your insurance company's plan where you go for your needs. Believe it or not the Exeter Hospital has been outstanding again too, ever since they added on their addition to their hospital, it gets 5 stars in my book again, it's finally back on track for a LOT of people again, for a while back in the 80's in to the early 90's it didn't get ONE single star, but that's changed dramatically since they got new people running their show, it's awesome again there. Four of my nieces were born at the Exeter Hospital and the others were up at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital....Good luck and keep us posted!

Seacoast area is a large undefined area -- what town do you live in and I can give suggestions as well. I had 3 children in NH - and 95% of my family are in NH/ME and my sister is now 7 1/1 months pregnant. I personally for hospitals recommend Frisbee (Rochester) Wentworth Douglas (love them in Dover) and I have heard great things about York in Maine. I can give you further recommendations for ob/gyn so you don't have to travel so far if you can narrow down where you are

Good luck and congratulations on the move and expanding your family

You're always going to have people who say their maternity experience was "good" or "bad" and be talking about the same hospital. Eveyone's reality/experience is different. If I were new to the area and trying to locate an ob/gyn but first had to decide on the hospital, I would research the number of births per year and the c-section percentage at each of the hospitals I was considering.
