My best friend is pregnant with her first child and she really doesn't like her OBGYN. I have never experienced this before, so I don't know what to tell her to do. Should she find a new OBGYN now or wait for the baby to be born? --Bonnie, Strongmoms facilitator
I would mos definieltely find a new one now. If she is unhappy now during regular appointments that are spread out just imagine how she will feel when she has to go evey other week or every week. Then she has to have that doctor during labor and delivery and recovery. I think its best to just fine a new one.
I agree with Brinny!!! I think it's so important that we have care providers that we trust, like and respect.
I have a friend who didn't like her OB-GYN - he pressured her to do things like be induced, etc when she didn't want to be. She asked for a new OB late in her pregnancy and didn't regret it at all! Her new OB-GYN was much more in line with her birth philosophy and that's pretty important for a big event like the delivery of your child!
