Was satisfied with care but was put off about how I was questioned about my child when she realized he was not born in a hospital. It was almost like she thought something had to be wrong with my baby because he wasn't born in the hospital. I provided a form that gave her all the info she would have gotten from the hospital had I had him there but was still questioned about every detail as if something weird was going on and that my Healthcare provider didn't know her job. She just made a big deal out of it for no reason other than that she was uneducated about or unfamiliar with our specific situation.
