Hi everyone! This is my first post and I'm a FTM at exactly 7 weeks today.
I have been wanting to change my OB for some time, but have been dragging my feet. I've been going to Shady Grove as I was TTC for 14 months. Right as they gave me the green light on IUI, I conceived naturally! SG is wonderful and still monitoring to me at the moment. I had my 6 week US, next week is my 8 week. I believe after that they may no longer monitor me.
I have an appointment this week with my current dr and may keep it just to get the ball rolling. I made an appointment with Capital Women's Care for October, I like the idea of seeing multiple drs since there's no guarantee of who will be there on the day of delivery. My appointment is with Dr. Nachbahr. I haven't seen anyone mention her by name on any boards, but on other medical websites, she seems to get bad reviews. Current CWC patients - should I stick it out with her for this appointment and hope following appointments will be someone else? Are the reviews about her wrong?
I was also going to call Perinatal Associates. Current patients - are they only for high risk?
GBMC patients in general - how true are the statements made about c-sections? Obviously I am very early in my pregnancy and I don't know what the future holds, but am of the mind of wanting to avoid a c/s unless absolutely necessary. Are the c/s rates there so high simply due to seeing more high-risk patients? I'm not opposed to St. Joe's, but aside from my current Dr, haven't had any good recs for a new OB there.
Sorry for the length! Hope to hear some great advice!
