I am moving to Houston in June, at around 26 weeks, and need to find a doctor or practice group in the area. In Durham, where I'm moving from and had my 1st baby, all the ob/gyn groups are large and the doctors rotate being on call at the hospital. You meet most of them over the course of your pregnancy and you have no idea which one will deliver you (unless you have a scheduled C-section/induction). That worked fine for me (and in the end none of the doctors I had seen delivered me, as they share call at the hospital with another group who was on when I went into labor). The friends in Houston I've talked to all seemed to one specific OB/GYN who delivered them. Is this more common than the larger groups? How does it work if they are out of town or delivering someone else? Is there a hospital people recommend? Thanks for any input you can share!
