Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March -- blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.

The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

This is going to be a huge problem. BO adding 40 million people to the HC system and not a single doctor. In fact, 83% of doctors polled said they would consider quitting were obamacare to be implemented. I see it's begun coffeetime.gif

I would like to see more birthing centers become available, where there is a choice in delivery method.



For my first delivery it was in a very progressive hospital where I had the option to deliver standing up using new fangled equipment, which I tried, but unfortunately baby was too big for my petite hips, so I needed help from a doctor. However, from the video, I'll venture to say here that the midwives could have performed the same procedure.

Cash only immediate health care places, that operate outside Obama Care are going to pop up everywhere.

Biere.

I hope so, a return to true free market. Better than the fascist system BO is trying for.

I agree and so far birthing centers cost 1/3 less than hospital stays. I'm surmising that with more birthing centers popping up creating competition, the costs should decrease even further.

Great idea, however they will outlaw such places immediately. This will be akin to the way the Fed views private currency.

They're planning on opening a private birthing clinic here too aimed at Russian health tourists. It's an increasingly growing market.

I would also like to see birthing professionals create mobile teams that can come to your home to help with a delivery. This would be cheaper yet.

Here's a snippet from an interesting article:

"The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists had previously said that as many as one in three of all births could be carried out in the home, but nationally the number is just one in 40. "
