After 7 long months of trying, I finally got that positive test result! Even though we have been trying, there are still a lot of things to consider and have questions about.
My Main concern is what should I look for in an OB? I recently moved to the state of MN about two years ago and I have so far gone through four Drs. (All through Ridgeview and Allina.) I have been extremely disappointed with how my husband and I have been treated by the Drs. They are friendly (well, three out of the four) but their medical knowledge and care are very lacking in my opinion. So now I am faced with looking for someone completely new.
I don't have any friends or family who can give me any references so I'm pretty much flailing around blindly for an OB/GYN.
What are some of your personal tips when looking for someone? I have some that I learned in the past year by going through my Dr's. but any extra advice would be appreciated.
Also, if there is anyone here in MN near Eden Prairie, Minnitonka, Chanhassen (pretty much south of Minneapolis) who might have some references would be awesome.

Do you have any thoughts on your birth yet? Med free, being able to walk around, etc... Whatever you want I would ask the doc what their thoughts are on those things to see how they feel on the subjects. If you are concerned about having a doc push you into a c-sect ask what their c-sect rate is. Congrats!!
