What should I do? I am confused on if I want to change my OB/Gyn. I was kinda of dissatisfied with the services I got last time I felt really rushed and then I find out my dr may not even be there to deliver my baby. I am debating on if I want to change Dr's I mean they have always been nice before. but I was looking forward to a dr that would be with me the entire time. I mean she is pregnant but still. I am bothered by the fact that she may or may not be there.

If it really bothers you, switch. I have yet to have a doctor who is with me for the long haul, but it doesn't really bother me so I've never switched.  Good luck, mama!!

I switched doctors when I was about 15 weeks.  I did not like the first doc at all.  If you don't feel comfortable and you don't think it is a one time thing, then switch docs.

It's really up to you.. I have a MW who is on call certain days and is not necessarily on call when I was supposed to deliver.. As it turns out she was there for my first but not my 2nd. Honestly, I didn't even really care that much..

i would switch if you are not comfortable, but it might be hard to find a doctor who will for sure be there. since they usually take turns with other doctors who are on call....

I think for the best chance of what you want, a small practice/midwifery practice will be a better fit...

If you are still pregnant then it's not too late to switch.

And if you are paying for the services (or your insurance is) then you deserve to get wonderful care !!

i'd change if it's already bothering you.. I felt rushed from day 1 with my OB,  it took me until 28 weeks to switch and I wish I would've done it so much earlier.
