What do I look for in a good ob/gyn? I recently told my General doc I wanted to be referred to an ob that shared my views (attachment parenting, extended nursing and someone who is mr personable). She laughed and said maybe what I need is a nurse practitioner? So what makes a good ob/gyn?Answer Question

a good ob/gyn will listen to you carefully and not rush you. he or she will address all of your concerns even if they're paranoid lol. they should have experience in dealing with high risk patients just in case you need that so you won't have to switch drs. not all ob/gyn are jerks, but i will warn you i changed drs. 3 times when i was in nj (they were all at the same practice). and here in md i switched drs. 5 times (again they were all in the same practice). it is not impossible to find a dr. who will listen to you and you have the right to refuse to be seen by certain doctors. when i feel that the dr. is blowing me off or rushing me and treating me like an inconvenience i will tell them to straighten up or i will be seeing someone else. it's not impossible. i found a great one in nj and now i found a great one here in md. the best way to find a great dr. is word of mouth from other mothers. gl!

I love my ob/gyn. He really explains things to me, takes the time, and follows my preferences. For example when I told him I wanted a natural childbirth he agreed and even helped me through birth. He gave me different techniques to overcoming the pain and relaxing.
