  • Use a different doc...or midwife. Don't put it off, start calling tomorrow.

  • What is it about the hospital? Maybe your doc has privileges elsewhere. Is there any particular reason you started with him/her?

  • Do you think i should do that to my doctor, he's not a bad doc i just really don't like the hospital at all. I asked him if he can work out of another hospital but he can't he says.

  • Change your dr. You should have a few weeks to get to know the new dr. You should not be uncomfortable when giving birth- ask around and see who is recommended.
    If you like your dr. and just not the hospital- maybe talk to him/her and see who othey recommend or what he can do to help with your situtation.

  • You might have trouble changing doctors. I moved from Orlando to Miami when I was 12 weeks pregnant and I was due to see the doctor again when i was 14 weeks. Most of the doctors I called didnt want to see me b/c i had aready been seeing another doctor and was past my first trimester.

  • if you want a dr, you can see if one will take you. just find one that you'll be comfortable w/.
    or look into a midwife. they'll take a low risk pregnancy usually at any point during pregnancy. also, that way you can either be at home, in a birthing center, or at a hospital when your baby is born.
