Oh, I so want to find a decent OB/GYN. I am trying to conceive #2 right now. I would really like to have a home birth this time around. But I will need an OB/GYN anyhow for these two reasons:
1. I need a gyn appointment in general; it's been too long since my last pap, etc.
2. I need an ob/gyn to take a look at my tear from birth #1. I tore really badly, and I think it was sutured too tight and may have healed badly (I can only have sex in certain positions now, others are still painful 2 years after the delivery). I need an honest assessment of whether that is going to be a problem with this next birth. If there are major concerns, I may want to reconsider the home birth -- but I don't want to make that choice based on a knee-jerk reaction from a conservative OB.
I have Dean health insurance, as of now. Although I have had a lot of recommendations for Meriter for OB/GYN. Actually my husband and I have considered making that switch anyway because the insurance is more affordable. So maybe now's the time? Anyho, for the present we are insured by Dean.
Hi- My good friend really likes Christine Bathke- I only saw her once for an annual when I had Dean Insurance, but I liked her. My friend did have 2 hospital births though, I'm not sure she was interested in home birth...I would try her out. She is at Dean West.
