Does anyone have any recs for an ob/gyn in West LA? I'm pregnant with my first child and fairly new to LA so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
What kind of birth do you want? Some doctors have more (and some have less) supportive approach to natural birth than others.
It's great that you're reaching out. When someone gives you an OB recommendation, ask them why? What did they like about their birth? Were they pressured to induce? Where they supported in their choices? Were questions welcomed? Were they rushed in and out of appointments or were they offered the time necessary to ask questions and discuss options.
We have an amazing homebirth community here--safe, local, woman-centered. Everyone comes to you and you don't have to travel while in active labor. Bonus!
