feedback about Hackensack-Umc at Pascack Valley
This is a review of the L&D/maternity center at Pascack Valley. I chose this hospital because The Childbirth Center midwives deliver there and it was closest to upper Manhattan where I live. Little did I know this is the best place to give birth if you want an in-hospital low intervention birth with a midwife. All of the nurses, pediatricians and staff that we worked with were wonderful. A poor review was made earlier of the lactation consultant so I must say that Erica, the lactation consultant that worked with me, is wonderful and met with me multiple times when I had questions, even giving out her personal phone number if I needed to reach out because she wanted to make sure I felt like I could successfully breast-feed my daughter. She’s very knowledgeable on the subject, caring and approachable. Perhaps the earlier review was with a lactation consultant that no longer works at the hospital because Erica is fabulous! There were many things we loved about our time at Pascack: their supportive equipment and policies for a “natural” labor and delivery, the atrium garden you can labor in or relax during your recovery, the small hospital feel with low noise and more personal attention, the harp therapist that played for us... Our time there was superb, we will be back if we have more children.
If you are planning to give birth, this is the best place..small and quiet and efficient staff.
I had an emergency admission followed by delivery after few days here. The labor n delivery nurses are so warm and nice. They won’t make you feel like you are alone in this process. The other side of nurses are super nice too after delivery.
Only service I didn’t like was lactation consultant and I will give her 0/5. She looked impressive and knowledgeable during the hospital tour we had and absolutely useless as a lactation consultant. During 4 days of my hospital stay, she showed up once only for 5 minutes, instructing me how to clean the breast pump parts. She never assessed for the right size of flange, giving advice on nutrition for more milk production, avoid injuries from the pump. She didn’t make any difference in my breastfeeding journey. Her presence doesn’t make any difference for the ladies who gave birth.
Technicians in Radiology were terrific however the Receptionist in Radiology Dept is one of the rudest people I have ever encountered in a Hospital. I voiced my displeasure with Customer relations. Lets see where that goes.....
Picked this hospital to give birth in because it was the hospital my obgyn had full access to. I've read the reviews and was nervous since I've seen a lot of negative comments. despite that I took the chance. I did notice most of the negative comments were not related to the birthing unit. So I'm giving 5 stars for the maternity nurses. gave birth 4 weeks ago and couldnt have had a better staff care for me. extremely knowledgeable, patient and always there checking in on me constantly. I had a wonderful birthing experience because of them. I also had 2 very knowledgeable lactation consultants show me the right way to breastfeed. best place to give birth. everyone was so warm and really really seemed like they truly cared.
I delivered my first child here two weeks ago and it was the best decision i could’ve made. My delivery nurse was Su and she was an angel. She truly made my delivery a smooth easy process. I loved her so much!! The anesthesiologist (female with dark hair-cannot remember her name) was unbelievable as well with the epidural. The labor and delivery unit is nice and quiet and calm. I had the most perfect delivery of my son there. My doctor (Dr Craig Wiener) delivers here and i would absolutely recommend checking it out. Great experience! Ask for Su!!!!
