  • if you don't like your ob change NOW, this is your body & your pregnancy & is going to be your birth. You should have someone who's working w/ you & that you trust. I can't tell you the number of stories on here where moms say they wish they would've changed obs when they didn't feel right. Doesn't necessarily mean she's a bad dr, just means you guys aren't the right fit.

  • I went to 7 obs before I found one that said I could have a vaginal birth. I was small before I got pregnant, 5'2" and around 100 pounds and the obs said I wasn't big enough for a baby to fit out. I gave birth vaginally to a 6 pound 6 ounce boy with no pain meds, no IV, no monitor, no interventions at all with a CNM at a birth center. My next baby was 7 pounds 6 ounces and slid out with his bag of water breaking. Usually women don't grow babies bigger than they can birth.

  • they should answer any questions you have at any visit. yes, you can change ob's at any point during your pregnancy. but, if you're looking for a more personal experience, midwives are much better. most midwives will spend an hour w/ you at every visit going over any and every question you have.
