Just wondering if anyone is in St. Louis MO and delivering at Barnes?

I see an OB team there, I will get the opportunity to meet with each of the Dr.'s and I will be able to decide which one does my c-section.

I know it's waay early right now, not even in my second trimester yet but I have no idea how to decide. I've looked them all up to see if they have any "reviews" and I'm not finding anything negative but nothing pops out at me that says "This is the Dr!" One of them is consistently on the best dr's in america list but she's only 36!!!! Her age makes me a little nervous because that means she has less experience.

Decisions, decisions.

If you want my opinion... I prefer newer doctors. The newer doctors I work with are easier to work with because they aren't so set in their ways. They are more open to suggestions and a lot of them are more educated in newer procedures and education. The OBs that have been there 20+ years we call them "old school" cause that's what they are. Totally make "old school" decisions. Haha. My first OBGYN she barely got done with her residency and started practicing when I saw her for my daughter. AMAZING doctor. She was smart, educated, listened etc. She switched groups or I would see her for this one. My new OB has been practicing for 5 years so still somewhat newer and he's already chief of OB at our hospital... So don't think just cause they're younger and have less experience years they aren't as good of a doctor. Just my 2 cents.

I hope you find someone that makes you happy.

I don't think that 36 is young enough to make me worry. I'm only 33, I would like to think that people would have faith in me if I were a doc My doc is young, not sure how old, but she is probably in her early 40's/late 30's. She is absolutely the best doctor I have ever had.

I actually never thought about it this way. This is a great point!! I keep telling myself that I am in a wonderful hospital this time, there are sooo many specialists there that if something went wrong there will be someone there that can help.

I'm going to try to look at it this way now. The Dr. that stuck out to me the most was the one that consistently made the "Best Dr.'s in America" list, the one that's 36 lol Thanks Kayla! LOL

My doctor is "old school"... he's not the nicest guy in town but I've done my research and he's the best option I have. I wish I had more doctors to choose from, lol. I hope you're really happy with who you end up with.

I hope you like the Dr you pick! I'm on the other side of MO so I don't know anything about that team.
