OBs for high risk, natural birth

I'd prefer to go with a midwife because I want a natural birth but because of a preexisting condition I'm considered "high risk". Any recommendations for great OBs that deal with high-risk patients who would support a natural birth? South or east metro or St. Paul area preferred. Thanks!

Re: OBs for high risk, natural birth

  • Check out the U of MN women's health specialists- they were great and deliver at fairview riverside which is close to St Paul (I live in St Paul and its 10 min away).
    I used the midwives but they also have OBs; they are supportive of your wishes.
    Depending on your situation you could see the midwives as they consult with the OBs (they consulted with the OBs during my pregnancy).
  • Have you talked to Health Foundations Birth Center? They have Midwives and an OB as part of their team.
