I had a very successful VBAC too! No drugs or anything. My little guy turned late in my pregnancy and we discovered just as I was about to birth at home. Thank you Dr. Bloomenthal! I was so happy with my birth and was just asked to write the story. I am so grateful for everything you did.
I had a successful VBAC thanks to Dr. Bloomenthal. My midwives discovered close to 40 weeks that my baby was breech. BC women's has a waiting list for ECVs and I was nowhere near the top since my care providers found out so close to my due date. One doctor I met with (not a BC women's Dr) said he could schedule a cesarian for me but didn't want to attempt an ECV at that point. I was starting to panic. I really didn't want another cesarian and I really didn't want to deliver breech. She was the only doctor that would try an ECV. I was told by other doctors that the success rate was low because of the size of my baby and the lack of room there was for the baby to turn (I have a short torso). But Dr. Bloomenthal gave it a shot. Even I was having my doubts about my baby turning at 40 weeks but she put everything she had into it and made it happen!! I should add: drug free and on my due date. Because of her I was able to deliver my baby vaginally a few days later. It was important to me because it took me 8 weeks to heal from my cesarean and this time I had a newborn and a four year old to take care of. I am eternally grateful to her for getting my baby into the right position. She even did a fist pump at the end which was kind of awesome. Thank you Dr Bloomenthal!
Seriously first class all the way. She is absolutely amazing. Both of our children were C section which she performed and we feel so lucky to have been in her hands. she made us feel so comfortable ever step of the way and her demenour throuout the process from start to finish was top notch. She's just a really good person and we feel so lucky to have had her. By the way, the people at her office are also first class. Lynn was amazing during both occasions. DR. Bloomenthal is the real deal, an amazing Doctor and person.
I am Dr. Bloomenthal's current patient. I am extremely happy with the care I received from her. I met her first time at the Early Pregnancy Assessment Clinic , at the time I was going through a lot of comlication and even a Dr. At a walk in clinic was telling me I was miscarrying.
Dr. Bloomenthal's confidence and positive attitude really gave me the hope and strength despite the complications I was facing. Now my baby is closer to due day and I can't wait to have my c-section done by her. Her receptionist , Lynn, has been extremly professional and caring as well as Dr. Bloomenthal. I remember calling arround to look for an OB before asking my GP for a referral, Lynn was the one and only one of the many assistance of the OBs I spoke to who cared and willing to answer my Qs before I was even referred. Hence, I did mot mind the longer wait to be able to see Dr. Bloomenthal since I knew I would be in good hands. Dr. Bloomenthal has always been patience in answeing my hundress Qs and always been precise in the info of my pregnancy. Because of her possitive attitude and cares, I could manage to move on with this complicated pregnancy ( with frequent spotting until 27wks ) and now being very healthy despite my gestational diabetes. I highly recommend her .
10 years ago my wife had an issue at the early part of her pregnancy that we had Dr. Bloomenthal consult with us at Women's and Children's. At that time the fetus was early on and her advice was to abort because it was her opinion that the baby was not viable and for us to come in the next day for an abortion. We left the hospital and decided to wait for two weeks. Thankfully instead of going into the hospital the next day, we waited and the next test results showed that the baby was viable. He was subsequently born healthy and had his 10th birthday not too long ago. Outside the delivery room we ran into the Dr. and my mother-in-law showed her what a mistake she had tried to convince us to make.
She is absolutely wonderful! I had Thomas, my first and only, at 41. She was so ready to answer my questions, of which I had many, and she always answered with thought. She is a professional but she knows how to keep you comfortable and make you laugh! She has a lovely sense of humor. She was wonderful in the delivery room and my husband was consistently reassured there too.
We loved dena! She was our doc for all 4 of our kids and when things got scary, she was there to help us through it. Wonderful! Can't say enough! She is simply the best! We were very lucky to be able to have her be our ob/gyn for all 4 kids!!
Dr. Bloomenthal was my OB during my pregnancy and also happened to be on rotation when my twins were delivered via emergency C-section. During my prenatal care, she was very caring and was always a pleasure to be around. At the hospital, she literally held my hand and gave me a hug before the surgery because I was going into a panic attack. I am very grateful for all that she has done for my family and honestly cannot say enough good things about her!
