So I have good news... I was able to make the SWITCH to a closer doctor, that will be able to deliver at the hospital literally like a mile away! I had been going to a lovely doc, but across the city.. and until I became pregnant, I didn't realize the value of proximity! So I put my feelers out... did some research.. called.. fax paper work... and wa la! Accepted, even at 23 weeks! This is a much bigger practice.. but I have heard such amazing things about them.. I meet next week for a meeting and introduction, then my first appt. with my new doc on Halloween :) hehe
I am SO excited to have this worry off my mind.. especially as the weather gets crappy.. I hate driving in heavy city traffic.. and my appts. become closer and closer...
Tell me ladies.. did you ever make a mid doctor switch? What was important to you in your doctor or practice that you went to? What about hospital.. ? I am blessed that the hospital can be a HUGE option, as Columbus has about 6 top hospitals across the city :)
I did sort of but it was after a miscarriage and we started to look for a midwife. I actually got refused by one midwife. Not sure if it was my history or the fact I didn't listen to her advice and increase my greens intake, but it led me to my current midwife so it worked out.
We've never made a hospital switch, as we didn't need to.
And it's probably true how you just mesh with some better than others.
