OB/GYN in West LA?

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!

  • Dr Emily Sikking in Santa Monica.  She's great!
  • Dr. Michaelyn Wilson in Los Angeles (she is on Wilshire, near La Cienega).

  • Dr. Bliss in Santa Monica is great!!
  • 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!
