I spoke with a friend in Columbus today who is trying to make decisions for her OB/GYN care. She is not currently pregnant, but is hoping to find a practice that she could develop a relationship with now and continue to use throughout a pregnancy in a year and a half or so. She's not yet sure what sort of birth she'll want, whether at home or in hospital, but is interested in finding a practice with a conservative approach that won't push for unnecessary interventions and will support her in a natural birthing experience. Any Columbus-area moms have suggestions that I could pass along? TIA!
I go to Dr. Kanellitsas in Hilliard. I had a natural birth, and she was pretty open to a lot of things in that area (doulas, less interventions, birth plans, etc). Someone else who had a similar birth recommended her to me in the first place. I do know other patients who have had more standard births with her - I think she is open to the patients preferences.
