I just got the exciting news that I am expecting and am almost 6 weeks. We have been working with a fertility specialist and after my first ultrasound next week he wants to hand me over to an OB/GYN in the area. I don't have one I currently work with and don't have anyone in the area I can ask as I'm new to the area and work at home. I am concerned about finding someone who is "fat-friendly" because I want to make this experience a very positive one and I am worried about a negative feel from the wrong doctor who won't treat me with the same respect and care as a "normal" weight woman.
I would recommend asking your fertility specialist, say "seriously. not just who sends you the most referrals, send me where I'm going to have a good experience." Also, where are you hoping to deliver? I see a group in Delaware right now, they deliver at Grady and they are very nice. I've never used them for a birth, but CHOICE had recommended Dr. Hammond as being very natural friendly. And I would definetely use a Dr with a midwife!
