Are there any practices in the area allowing spouses to appointments or at least Ultra sound? I have private insurance if that helps... And I will travel if need be! I hate going alone :-(

No. I had a post op visit at my dr and needed the moral support. I begged over the phone, begged the nurse when I came and when I was finally with the dr almost crying and barely able to answer questions, she said my husband could come in.
I guess cry when you get there and hope they melt lol.
What I did though for my ultrasounds was video call my husband.

I didn't cry but begged them to allow my dh in with me for the removal of my staples post csection. Nothing doing. Not allowed. They said eh it doesn't hurt that much.
Btw by the sono I asked if I can please video call dh, especially the one that we were finding out the gender. The technician said it's not allowed.

I guess depends on the dr and situation. I was post emergency surgery and barely could walk normally. As I said, I was also crying and couldn’t answer any questions.
In regard to the the sono, that’s really strange, they told me that’s what they tell everyone to do cuz husbands can’t come. 🤷‍♀️

Might depend on whichever technician is doing the sono. Or they got more lenient with time. I had the baby already, so my 20 week sono was quite a few months ago.

I have been seeing doctors in Manhattan and they just informed me that as of the 26th week my husband could join. He would just need to wait downstairs until I was in a room.

I believe so as long as he doesn't have symptoms. It's an amazing practice, they deliver in Brick and I was thrilled there!

I'm surprised they closed so early. They have Lakewood office at 7329421900 but each can schedule for the other. However, during Corona, they had to lay off their Lakewood staff so were seeing patients only in their Brielle office. Please try them again tomorrow! They're excellent!

I called both offices and spoke with the operator. I'll call back tomorrow. I really need moral support by my appointments :-( I really don't advocate for myself well.

West long branch obgyn 7323679299. Was just there with my husband. They started allowing 1 support person at the end of July.
I have been using them for 10+ years and have been very happy. They have been great throughout my pregnancies, loss and managing other conditions and procedures I have had with them over the yrs.
