I know there have been a couple of posts regarding OB recs, but I am still searching for someone closer to me... so I hope someone has some other names!
We are pregnant again (yay!) and since I had a rather complicated high risk pregnancy the last time, I would like to find an OB (we've moved) - I am hoping to find an OB who will support a VBAC in the West Chicagoland area (like, Oak Park, Riverside, Lombard). Because of some other complications with my previous infants, I also want to deliver at a hospital with a NICU.
So, a natural childbirth, VBAC supporting OB in west chicagoland who delivers at a hospital with NICU (like Loyola or Prentice)? Impossible?
Thanks for any help!

I don't know any that deliver at Loyola. I go to West Suburban Women's Health The are a great office. They deliver at Hinsdale (which does have a small NICU) They have 2 midwives and 4 OBs ALL WOMEN! Everyone I know uses them. I have to have a c-section, but that is because I had a myomectomy 8 years ago.

Done with diapers!!

Have you looked at UIC? I have had many students use Dr. Figueroa there and she's been great.

Good luck. Wishing you smooth sailing!
