Ped and OB/GYN Recs in Seattle?

My family is relocating to Seattle in six weeks and I would love recs for great pediatricians and a pro-VBAC OB (not pregnant now but maybe in a few more years and I don't want to switch doctors) in Seattle. We will probably be living in North Queen Anne.

Thanks!!

Re: Ped and OB/GYN Recs in Seattle?

  • I live in Queen Anne. 

    I like Meghan McKeever at Seattle OBGYN.  They were very pro VB, unless it is medically necessary to have C-section.  With my second pregnancy and a couple of weeks of hospital bedrest and even when I just wanted to have a C-section, they did everything they could to prolong the pregnancy and I was eventually cleared for VB.  Both of my kids were born by VB at Swedish First Hill.  So you would have to ask them about being pro VBAC.  http://www.seaobgyn.com/profiles.html

    For a pediatrician, we go to Jessica Lindsay at Polyclinic Pediatrics.  She is on maternity leave now and just had a baby girl.  The staff is really friendly, and we saw another pediatrician when we were there for an appointment this past Friday.  There is also a OBGYN on the same floor, but I have not gone to that OBGYN.   http://www.polyclinic.com/dr_jessica_lindsay

  • Thank you so much! How do you like living in Queen Anne with small kids? It seems so appealing in a lot of ways to live in the city but since we have lived here in FL (which is like one giant suburb) for a few years we aren't sure how we will like the city or if we should just move out to Bellevue (which also sounds very nice). Guess we will just have to see which feels more like home :)

  • Hi!  My husband and I also live on Queen Anne.  It's a fantastic neighborhood (everyone who lives on QA will tell you it's the best neighborhood in Seattle ;) ).    

    I go to Seattle OB/GYN and see Anna Daniel.  The office is very pro-VBAC and one of the docs there (I can't remember which one) recently had a VBAC herself.  We've been interviewing doulas and they always have the scoop on all the docs.  All my girlfriends and co-workers go to this practice - it's fantastic.  

    My friends and I have been using a new app called Lucky Oyster to share our favorite 'pearls'.  It's been especially fantastic for swapping baby and pregnancy recommendations.  If you're interested, you can find my "baby on board" pearls here:  http://bit.ly/18PV6MB

    And my Queen Anne pearls here:  http://bit.ly/18PV6MB

    Hope you love Seattle!

    I really like Queen Anne.  I have lived here for a couple of years.  It has helped to get involved with mommy/kid groups on meetup.com.  Right now, I am involved with Greater Seattle Working Moms meetup.com group, and they have a facebook group as well.  There is also Eastside Working moms meetup.com group.  And there are mommy/kid groups on meetup.com groups that are in different neighborhoods and areas.  It has been helpful to just learn your favorite areas to take your kids--playgrounds in the neighborhood or places like Twirl Cafe or PlayDateSEA that are indoors.  I like KidsQuest which is more on the Eastside.  And then my other favorites are the toddler playground at University Village and there is a playground that is near Green Lake Community Center that I like to take my kids to. 

    As well, there is a Queen Anne Mom and Dad group on yahoo.com.  You have to provide them with an address in the Queen Anne area in order to become part of the group.  But there are a lot of emails, and it keeps you informed with what is going on in the neighborhood.

  • Dr. Levitt at northwest pediatrics in north Seattle! It is now part of the poly clinic. I went to her as a child and now LO goes to her and she is Awesome! Very kind, genuine and is very realistic and rational in decisions made. You always know her reasoning for things and she is great at explaining an answering any questions you have. :)
