Hello, I received a floral diaper cake for my shower. It was beautiful and really not like any that I have seen in the past, so I thought I might give them a shootout to everyone. Thanks Ray and Kathy! www.bloomingdiapers.com

New to Portland-- and pregnancy. Can you recommend a doctor?

September 15, 2008

Hello, Urban Mamas. I'm glad to see such a wonderful site exists here in Portland!

I just moved to Portland a month ago, and the change of scenery must have done me good because I became pregnant just a couple weeks later.

So, while I'm not having bouts of sadness and panic about being far away from my family and friends, I'm searching out the care of an excellent OB/GYN. I spent hours on the internet doing some research (that's when I found urbanMamas) and it looks as though Providence Medical Center and Women's Health Today have had many satisfied patients. I called today and made an appointment with Dr. Nancy Grant at WHT. Does anyone know or have had any experiences with her? If so, I'd love to hear about it.

I'd also like to hear recommendations for other docs. (My appointment isn't until 10/14-- week 10!-- so I have some time to evaluate my choices.)

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Postpartum Chiropractic Care on NE Broadway

June 20, 2008

Postpartum chiropractic care on NE Broadway. I just had a baby about a month ago and my body was wrecked from the pregnancy and labor. My body continues to have aches and pains from holding my new baby, etc. I went to Flores Chiropractic at 2916 NE Broadway and I am finally starting to feel normal again! I am finally getting back to normal and feel I am able to start exercising again without pain. It is great. Plus Dr. Flores is really nice, laid-back, down to earth guy who really seems to care. Check him out – Dr. Noe Flores, 2916 NE Broadway, Suite B, 971-255-1922; drnoeflores@gmail.com. He just opened not too long ago, so his sign is not up yet. His office is behind the DocuMart not too far from Fred Meyer on Broadway. My kinks are getting worked out - Lynn
