Hi all, 

 

I'm looking for a holistic OB in the South Bay or Santa Cruz area. By "holistic" I mean an MD (or ND? I'm not sure what that education exactly entails) who is open to / integrates natural medicine. I'm looking for an OB who won't scare me into overmedicating or getting a c-section (unless, of course, necessary). I'm also thinking about getting a midwife, but would still like a doctor, too. 

 

Any ideas / suggestions?

I have few friends that have used Dr. Klikoff.  Of these friends, two were successful VBACS, one had an unmedicated birth with twins, and another swore any other OB would have performed a c/s after her +3 day labor.

 

Good luck!

Thank you Miso Happy, I'm planning to call around next week to see if I can switch from the OB I currently have, who gave me a weird feeling. Any other suggestions?

Oh good!  I'm so glad she is working out for you.  It's sooo important to have a caregiver that you feel positively about.
