Hi Smile

We’re hoping to make Aliyah this September B”H but we need to know we’d have great doctors in Jerusalem before we do.

Can anyone please refer the best of the best of the following doctors for us please? We’d even go private for all doctors if necessary, as long as we know they’re the most experienced & best ones out there.

Adult GI (my husband has crohn’s disease and has a remicade infusion every two months. Hoping to get off of it soon B”H. May consider cannabis. Need the most renowned GI in Jerusalem for this matter)
OB/GYN (I have hypothyroidism and take synthroid and have a history of micarriage & infertility, so it’s important to be in good hands. Preferably someone who’d see me during the pregnancy and deliver as well. I’m natural minded and would want a doctor who supports natural delivery and mother’s informed consent. Having a female doctor is always a plus but not a deal breaker)
Pediatrician (again, natural-minded and supportive of giving vaccinations at parents’ own schedule. We have autoimmunity in the family so this is a must)
And adult general doctor.

Any information would be greatly appreciated! We’re thinking to move to Ramat Eshkol G-d willing, but doctors don’t have to be local as it’s important to us to have the best. We’ve tried getting referrals from many places but have had no luck. Please let me know! Thank you so much and Tizku L’mitzvot!!

Vaccinations are through Tipat Chalav. You are placed in the clinic for your area. You can request a specific nurse.
I live outside Jerusalem, our Tipat Chalav is connected to our kupa clinic and shares the nurses.

I use a private legal midwife for my homebirths. If you’re interested, I’m happy to talk about it.

Re OBGYN
I used Nili Yanai just for one visit. Didn't go back, because she was not under my insurance. But I absolutely was so impressed. With her gentle care. Kind. Knowledgeable. Great choice.

Thank you so much for your replies! Have any of you heard about the natural birth center at Hadassah hospital? Any reviews?

Where is she located? Where can I get her info? Do you happen to know what insurance she works with? Thanks!

Thanks so much for the info. So she delivered your baby too, because you went privately with her? Do you know if she accepts insurance at all?

I went to check out the l&d ward at Hadassah ein kerem. Seems like the natural rooms are closed. They had 2. One is officialy closed. And the second theyre closing up as well. They wouldn't let me register for it. Sad

I did hear that there are new tubs in the rooms at Hadassah har Hatzofim- I'd love to hear more info about that- if anyone has any.

Did that include the visits throughout the pregnancy? Or was that a different charge? Can I ask how much it came out to about to have her privately?

Also, where did you have to go to see her for appointments? In the hospital? Is she/her office English speaking?

Regarding GI:

Meira Reiss (frum lady) is head of IBD support foundation in LA, and I personally know that she has been in touch with patients in EY, so she would be an excellent resource.
