So I went ahead and made my appt., June 23. Dh thought this a good idea and I realized since we are moving June 26, I'll want to have time to find someone good where we are going, this way I'll have a month. Where I am now, (Rochester MN) you only have two choices in health care-Mayo and not Mayo (local clinic for the rest of us) so it is pretty insurance driven. Where we are going (Cedar Rapids IA) there are actually independent drs! *gasp* I was looking through the yellow pages and there were, like, 10 diff. listings for OB care! If anyone knows of a midwife in CR, let me know(there were done listed in yp). But, frankly, I'll settle for good care whatever form it comes in: OB, NP, Famdr. I think I will wait to go to a LLL meeting and ask them before I decide. I am afraid to ask just some wives of men my husband works with. They might actually want interventions in preg. and delivery (hey, their choice, it's just not for me) so an OB they used might be the exact opposite of what I'm looking for! Anyway, I get to see the NP I always see and saw through my entire preg with ds. Which, if nothing else, will be an opportunity to say good-bye.
