Anyone have any reviews of the Hardin Memorial Hospital? I am considering delivering my baby there just because I don't want to make the trip to Louisville. Would anyone recommend it? Who was your doctor? What did you like/dislike about them? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

the hospital itself is horrible, but i had my baby there and the labor and delivery Part were great. All the nurses helped a bunch, they were great at their jobs, and didnt seem selfish. the doctor that delivered my daughter was dr. Sebree. the dr. That delivers your baby is the OB you seen your whole pregnancy unless the have an on call doctor that night. They were also quick to teach me things as a first time mom and give me info to take home. I was outta the hospital in no time at all! i recomend them, its not worht the trip to louisville. If you go into labor you dont wanna be rushing to an outta county hospital when there is a good one right next door! this is just my opinion. You can also tour the birth place before you go into labor to see what you like and dont like. Good luck in labor and congrats!

Dr Hamilton from etown physicians for women was my doctor and the whole experience was great. well as great as childbirth ever is lol. I know the er at hmh is terrible but the above post was right, labor and delivery there is wonderful. They were so nice to me and i really had a difficult labor, Dr hamilton explained everything to me slowly and patiently since I was a first timer, he checked on me a lot and so did the nurses. It was not to have to go all the way to Louisville and be close enough to home that people could come visit and see the baby :) Congrats on your new addition and good luck!

Thanks so much! I have decided to go to Hardin Memorial. I made my appointment with Dr. Hamilton, so hopefully I'll like him too. I called the office, and that's who the woman choose to make my appointment with. I just can't see rushing to Louisville when I have a hospital so close. Plus none of our family is local, so they will probably be staying at our house. Which I would prefer over a hotel. I just wanted to say thanks, I really appreciate the input.

every doctor at the etown phys for women are amazing. i see dr preen and she delivered my son by c-section and everything was great. what ever you do do NOT see midwife ruth there. she is insane and will tell you your baby is dead if she cant find the heartbeat. she is the only reason i dont like it there but never see her. and the nursing staff at hmh are great they will help you with everything you need. everything else about that hospital SUCK

Dr Hamilton delivered my first child and the whole experience was great. The nurses then and everyone was just wonderful. Now when I had my second some blk lady from that same office whom I cant even remember the bia,s name showed up and delivered my son. The staff was horrible, some nurse had me pushing forever till my sons head was coming out then went and got the dr. whom then came in and didnt even introduce herself nor told me to push,ect. She didnt say a word. It was horrible. She let me get ripped, even though they knew my son was gonna be big and I needed an episodomy. Just the worse experience ever compared to my first. So its hard to say what to expect. I fdo know Hamilton though is very good. Id try to get him to deliver if I were you. And if I ever have a third I sure hope he is still around.

Even though most of that hospital is awful, the L&D is great. Everyone is friendly, the nurses are wonderful. You actually get good food up there, too! They take wonderful care of you.

Physicians for women has a great staff. I had mcconnell deliver my oldest son and preen deliver my 2nd. For my 3rd I had Dr.sebree as my Dr with my son whom was born Feb 3 at 19 weeks gestation. Weighing only half a pound and only 8 inches Long he passed away. Hmh er was trying to send me home fully dilated and sebree said she would sew me up the next day. Needless to say after being rushed to u of l in a last minute attempt to save my son I ended up leaving the hospital empty handed. Sebree didn't listen to me telling her something was wrong and hmh er didn't listen either even when I was in labor. The only reason I ended up at u of l is because I believe sebree knew she was at a liability. The birthing floor at hmh is good but i recommend never using the er for pregnancy complications. If only going to the birthing floor was an option I was aware of id possibly still be planning on having my baby boy on June 27. I strongly discourage people choosing Dr. Sebree.

I delivered my baby there last september. Im not a huge fan of hmh, but it was clean and they took care of us just fine. I HIGHLY reccomend Dr Delacruz. I had Dr Sebree as my prenatal Dr and she was nowhere to be found when I had my baby and dint actually show up until about 2 days later at 1 in the morning. NICE. So I had a few complications after I went into labor... epidural dropped my BP very low and the baby reacted quite negativlely, had almost no amniotic fluid left, and my son got 'stuck' with the cord around his neck... Delacruz took care of each of these quick, clean, and efficiently. I was really worried for my baby because of all the mess but he did an outstanding job. Not to mention it was my first baby, he made the whole scary process a lot more easy. As did the nurses who were helping.

no offense to anyone but with doctor sebree i had a great experiance. All 4 of my children were born at 40 weeks and between 7.1 pounds and 8. 4 pounds. VERY HEALTHY BABIES! If you had complications it wasnt her fault. I am sure she listend and even if she didnt actaully physicaly help you she gave you things to look out for and work on. If you had complications that early then it most likely was because of the baby its self not the doctor. Or maybe you. Sorry for your lost but you cant blame everything on a doctor. Also to the women with the low BP go read the side effects of an epidural! those are all on there! when you were in labor they made you sigin papers sayin you understood the possibilities of these side effect and that the hospital was under no fault if they occur. And the cord bein wrapped around your childs next isnt a fault of a doctor or an epidural. And the amniotic fulid the hospital should have cought and fixed beofre. Not your ob. Your ob is just to deliver a baby. They dont have to be there to tell you when to push. Only to pull the baby out and sue you up. And maybe dr. Sebree wasnt on call that day you went into labor. If your doctor isnt on call the dont come in and deliver your baby. Ive had 4 and workin on a 5th with dr. Sebree after 4 and one on the way i think i know what i am talking about. And i am sorry for your lost!

i dont remember blaming my complications on her. Did I say that anywhere at all? I simply think it was a little half ass that she didnt even show up until 2 days later at one in the morning, not to mention i was 38 weeks along and she had not once checked to see if I was dialated and I was already 5 cm. Just saying those thing are HER JOB, shes makes 100's of thousands of dollars a year to do those things so I was a little off put that she didn't. I understand doctors getr busy and have more than one patient, but there was a laundry list of things she didn't do and I think if you're getting paid that money maybe you should try to do them. I don't dislike her as a person and nowhere in my statement did I blame my complications on her and never did I say she was a bad doctor. I simply gave me experience. Thanks though.

And now that I re-read your post I am thinking maybe you're confused or were talking to someone else becuase I didn't say any of the stuff you're talking about. I had complications AFTER my epidural, no time before, and didn't LOSE anything. My son is 7 months old. You're kind of ignorant acually because my statment says word for word "So I had a few complications AFTER I went into labor... epidural dropped my bp low and the baby reacted quite negatively..." etc. So maybe before you say No OFFENSE and try to make someone look dumb know what you read and think about what you're going to say because if you read my part correctly you probably wouldnt have said any of that.

funny how someone was quick to "correct" me (even though I didnt even say what she thought lol) but I wasn't the only one with issues with Sebree.

i was half talkin to you and half talking to the other lady who posted. and i know you had the complications AFTER you had the epidural. i was saying that the L&D at HMH makes you sign a paper stating you know the side effects of the epidural once you get it.. maybe the excitement of your labor got in the way of realizing it but they did.... so you cant complain about what the epidural caused becaused you were supposed to sign the papers sayin you understood.... and if you dont remember and think you have room to b*tch than call the hospital they keep it all on record.... and also, a smart doctor will check your cervix at 36 weeks and 39 weeks if you make it that far. the more you are checked the more your unnecisarly messing around down there.. leave it be and let it do what it needs to naturaly GOOGLE IT! and to the other lady (not you jessica) alot of the reasons an OB my not realize you have preclampsia is because your BP is low at your visits.. so whenn you think the problem is occuring GO TO THE ER. they will tell you.... you dont need to wait on your doctor.
(one more time, just for clairification, the last part WAS NOT FOR JESSICA)

also now that i am re-reading my post, i think it is best you read everyone else post and maybe try and understand that i wasnt only reffering to you. i was saying "no offense" to the lady above you who did lose her baby.. so funny how someone was quick to "correct" me even though what i said wasnt all directed to her selfish arrogant asss. ;]

Then maybe you should make it more clear you are speaking to more than one person because you certainly did NOT and how is anyone suppose to know if you make MULTIPLE refrences to one person???? I guess we're mind readers! And yes EVERYONE is aware you sign a waiver before your epidural. And that a LOT of times it did exactly as happened to me... no one blamed that on anything else. And you're right a smart doctor WOULD HAVE checked me but conveniently Sebree did not. The last appointment I had with her right after she didn't check me she said, "I'll see you next week if you make it that far!" Cute. I was already 5cm when I got to the hospital the day after my appointment, it just would've been nice to have been checked and informed. I do know this can also happen quickly but my labor was not a quick one so I probably could've saved some pain and waiting time had my doctor actually went through the procedures she was suppose to ... And I love that you need to call names to get your point across lol very adult of you.
