I am currently 11 weeks pregnant. I had my first OB appt yesterday since finding out it was twins. I asked my dr about switching to a high risk OB and she didn't think it was necessary. The hospital where she delivers has a NICU but I don't believe it's a level 3 NICU. I also don't think there are high risk OB practices that deliver out of tht hospital. All of their diagnostic testing is done out of a fetal maternal medicine dept but they don't actually deliver the babies. At my appt my doc told me I will have ultrasounds every 4 weeks at MFM so I know she is taking a more cautious approach.
There is a hospital in the same hospital system that has a level 3 NICU and has a high risk OB dept. I think I might call the high risk practice at the other hosptial to see what their guidelines are for taking new patients and if I need to be referred there by my current doc.
Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or opinions.
