So I need to find an new OB. When I was pregnant with my son I had insurance through the state, so I didn't have too many options. I was 255 when I pregnant in 2008. I got up to 320, and now am back down to 270. I am just worried about my weight. I want to find someone who will be honest, but still mindful of my feelings and situation. I have BCBS now so I have more options. I also have a lap-band now too, which is a whole new thing to think about. Any advice or experiences to share??

Honestly, what I did when I needed a new one is ask the ladies at work lol And then I called and talked to the dr office and told them my concerns and what I needed to feel comfortable and they were good to me.

I would ask a few trusted friends and then go from there. Also what about midwives? I find they are often more accepting and gentle.

I actually found my current ob practice based on VBAC stats. I am hoping for a VBAC and drs who will do them are hard to find. So far I have been so happy with mine!

I would start with your BCBS insurance list and then google each dr. Call and talk to their front desk, ask your questions and see how you feel they answer them.

Thanks ladies! I got referred to the same place by two different friends. One is delivering with a midwife there next month, and it looks like it is in network from my insurance. Next step will be calling them after I get a positive test result....hopefully in time for Christmas!
