I am a first timer and 20w3d today. We moved last weekend.
I have been seeing a Doctor in South shore hospital since the beginning of my pregnancy till date.
She was awesome...understood my needs and my fears and I could trust her completely with this pregnancy.
Unfortunately due to my recent move, I cannot continue with the same Doctor anymore
As per my doctor - so far, mine is a low risk pregnancy, everything looks normal for me and also for the baby, baby's growth looks fine, I don't have any prior history of any medical conditions. so bottomline, if everything goes well - I can totally go for a uncomplicated natural vaginal birth :)
My Doctor said I should go to a midwife, because i am low risk and midwives provide much needed support, care and personal attention. Personally, I am nervous because this is my FIRST pregnancy. Although I would love to have personal attention, support and a natural vaginal birth during my delivery, I would also want advanced medical expertise available if there is some last min risk.
So I need your advice ....please provide any recommendations / reviews about good ob/gyn doctors or midwives in the boston/cambridge/arlington area. I just came across http://www.mamah.org/. They seem ideal --> midwives and also affiliated to a hospital, so I can have access to a Ob/Gyn in case of emergency. Anybody has any reviews/experiences with MAMAH that you can share?
Really appreciate all your support!
