I recently had a C-section at Lock Haven Hospital for the birth of my fourth child, which made me very nervous However, the ladies on the OB floor, Dr. Chen and Dr. Udalla all made my experience just as amazing as a natural birth. Dr. Udalla did an amazing job at really listening to every concern I had, and when Dr. Chen heard of any issues I was also having, she not only came to the hospital when she wasn't working, she followed up with me at home to make sure I was OK. The nurses were terrific and helped out tremendously with also being there for every need I had. Also helping a great deal with the baby when I was still unable to get up on my own. These ladies really care about their patients more then just it being another "job." And I just wanted to really say THANK YOU to them all for making this birth just as amazing as the rest.
