From Julie about Dr. Tse: “She’s affiliated with Maimonides hospital in Borough Park. ( hospital has a large birthing center and they really took good care of me. They are extremely strict with baby viewing which is good because everyone needs a code and you have to go through a lot in order to make sure no one walks out with your child.”
Thanks for your input Julie & Congrats on your VBAC!!!!
