I am looking for an OBGYN who is good at listening and at least letting me try to deliver naturally. Do y'all have any suggestions on great doctors? I definitely want to deliver in a hospital, not at home, but I'm still adamant on trying to get to a no-epidural delivery.
I've been contemplating Dr. Wild at Palmetto Park Ridge because his reviews are good, but I think I read somewhere that after your 20th-ish week, the docs here rotate and you're kind of stuck with whoever is on call when you deliver. Is this true?
I've also been contemplating Dr. Ridenhour at SC OBGYN/Palmetto Baptist who has great reviews and I'd prefer a female anyhow (but would be just fine with a male).
Any opinions on either of the 2 docs or any write-in suggestions? I live really close to Park Ridge so that would be ideal but I'd rather have the better doctor, of course, so the distance to Baptist or Richland is not a deal breaker by any means. A great doctor is a great doctor in my book regardless of gender and all the hospitals seem to be pretty comparable.
Thanks in advance!!
