Dr. Hartung

Here I am with my baby’s doctor right after everything was over with. Dr. Hartung was amazing! (He practices at Hudson Hospital in Hudson, Wisconsin.) We live in the Twin¬†Cities (Minneapolis)¬†so we drove about 1/2 hour to each appointment with thim.

He was open to me making the birth experience whatever it was that I wanted it to be. Even though it ended up in a c-section, he encouraged me to try for a vaginal birth but left the decision up to me. After meeting with many people who were motivated only by risk management, it was refreshing to have a doctor that was motivated by birth being as natural an experience as possible while having respect for medical issues that could arise.
