I'm newly pregnant (4 weeks) and just found this forum. I did not have a regular OB (general doctor did my yearly exams) so I had to find one. My husband is at CDC so I thought it would be good go to Emory Women's Clinic on the main campus so he can be sure to come to my appts-just a quick walk or drive away. Anyway, my first appt is next month when I'm at 8 weeks. I asked for a doctor I read about but they said she wasn't taking new patients. They scheduled me with their NP-Maxine Bellamy. Anyone worked with her? I couldn't find any reviews online. Should I be irritated that they scheduled me with an NP instead of an OB? They didn't really give me any choice. Or does it matter? I have hypothyroidism and wanted to make sure I got someone with lots of experience with endocrinology issues.
Does anyone here to to the main campus emory women's clinic? Do you like them?
I know they deliver at Emory Midtown. I found some old posts on here about delivering at Emory...but has anyone had any recent experiences?
Also...do you know if Emory is doula friendly? I have a friend that had a good experience with a doula and thought I might want one.
Thanks for any advice/insight. Sorry I asked so much. I'm very excited and anxious. The next 4 weeks are going to go by so slow.
