Hey all! I am a first time mom, this is my second pregnancy and I'm new to the hospital community page! I've only been in Florida for two years, I'm originally from the Midwest! I'm an artist, avid reader, writer and hairstylist. I was looking for other women who are currently pregnant to possibly make friends with and get to know as I haven't really met too many people here at all! Anyway! Hello!

Hello! I am new here. Just wanted to check, do we need to be a patient of the hospital to ask questions here or is everyone welcome?

Hi Everyone! My name is Sheila and I am a proud mother [...]

Hi Everyone! My name is Sheila and I am a proud mother of a 10 month old. My baby is healthy and happy, which is great, but the problem is me. I feel like I never have any energy and I am still carrying a lot of my baby weight. Before getting pregnant, I was SUPER active and never had any issues with weight or energy levels. I have been trying to get back to gym a couple of times a week but I just struggle when I am there. Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone have any suggestions of things that have worked for them? I am getting desperate!! Thanks!

Hey @stardish - Unfortunately, it does seem very quiet here, I guess there aren't that many members. Such a shame because I think this site could be helpful for many people. So glad our advice was helpful and glad to hear that things are looking up for you. The snow is just starting to melt here too and I am so glad, it has been such a long winter and I am ready for spring. [...]

Hey @peterandy - Just wanted to give you a quick update. We have had some warmer weather here so I have been able to get the stroller out for some walks with Dylan. We walked over 4 miles today! I haven't done that since before I was pregnant!! I've also lost 2 pounds this week and I am super excited about that as well. We are getting more and more excited for spring here too. [...]

Hi. I just had my 20 week ultrasound and found out that my umbilical cord only has two vessels. The doctors assure me that many women have this issue and go on to have healthy babies but it is obviously still a little scary. I have an appointment for another ultrasound with a specialist in a couple of weeks to check on the babies size and organ development. Has anyone else had any experience with this? Any info would be appreciated. thanks!

Hey @cloudyday - I also had a two vessel cord when I was pregnant with my first child. It was definitely a little scary at first especially when they told me it could be an indicator for Down's Syndrome. After another ultrasound they were able to tell me that everything looked good. They did warn me that the baby would likely be underweight at birth, but he came out at 8lbs 9oz so everything came [...]

Hello! I have no insurance and my medical services I will pay for myself. I signed a contract with the hospital for a delivery. The contract is written: payment in full is due prior to delivery for this agreement to be valid . When should I pay the bill? Prior to delivery date (maybe a week) or day of birth ?

hi @zhlobich - I can see this is a late response but I did a quick search you might try emailing to see if they can answer your question. Maybe that will help?

Is there is any email address for winni palmer hospital? I need to ask them a couple of question could anyone help?


RebeccaB responded Thu, Feb 23 at 12:01am UTC · View

Hi @mahamourad! I'm not aware of one. My suggestion would be to call them at 321-843-2584 or alternatively submit an appointment request here: Would that work?

Employers force people to stand all day who could be seated. Cashiers a prime example. This can lead to a host of medical problems. Why be so cruel? I saw a lady cashier at WP having to suffer. Why? Smacks of slavery.
