Hi all. I am pregnant with twins, and feeling a little overwhelmed about finding an OB. I had a completely natural, midwife-assisted birth with my DD, and was planning a homebirth for this pregnancy. Twins obviously throws a wrench in my plans.
Does anyone have thoughts or recommendations for an OB who has experience delivering twins vaginally, and who won't automatically schedule my c-section if they're not both head down? I have heard good things about Henry Dorn, but am concerned that High Point Hospital (where he delivers) doesn't have a NICU. I am willing to drive 30 to 40 minutes, though I don't want to go much further than that if possible (ie. not the Triangle or Charlotte areas). I have a preliminary appointment with the OB practice at Wake Forest Baptist (Andrea Fernandez and Oona O'Neill), but don't know much about them except that my fertility doctor recommended them.
I would really appreciate any help, information, or experiences people have to share!
Congratulations on your pregnancy. I'm bumping this up for attention. Anyone have a recommendation to share?
Natural Beginnings Birth Center in Statesville! I'm in Clemmons takes me exactly 30 minutes to get there. Give Marcia or Nicole a call there. If you prefer OB Dr. Roque is there. Let me know if you need any more info!
Central Carolina OB/GYN in Greensboro has five CNMs on staff, and they deliver twins. I even know someone who delivered twins naturally in a birthing room (not the O.R.) with them. Many practices insist on an O.R. location and an epidural for a twin birth (ready to be increased in case of c-section), but Central Carolina OB/GYN allowed my friend to birth without both--and she did great. I highly recommend them to you: http://www.ccobgyn.com/ Vicki Latham (CNM) and Dr. Rivard (OB) are my most favorite providers there.
