I had a regular OBGYN already for checkups and birth control, but I did schedule a specific pre-TTC appointment to talk about it with my Dr first and ask some questions. It was helpful!

I thought about it as I saw my gp for everything too, but I decided there was no need, my pelvic exams and tests had been stellar in recent years, I know to take folic acid, etc. But problem is now I’m expecting and now I have to try and find an OB, my gp only refered me to a couple of OB/GYN clinics but to no one specific, she suggested I ask my friends who they like. Funny thing is I am a new nurse and I am thinking of asking one of my instructors, who is a midwife, if it would be weird if she took me on as her patient….she was only my instructor for one quarter, but I found her to be brilliant and I realy liked her…so yeah, I’m still looking, looking…so I say it couldn’t hurt to find someone now and then you won’t have to worry later.

@meadow_jersey:  Establish before TTC because some of the more popular doctors have cutoffs of new pregnant patients to limit the number of patients giving birth around the same time.

I just did this. My OB from my DD is no longer practicing so I got some referalls and visited a few offices to pick a new doctor. It was a no charge consult and we just met in their offices and talked. I felt it was important to already be in someone’s system so you aren’t searching for a doctor when you get your BFP.

@meadow_jersey:  I dont think you need to see the ob before you ttc but if its taking a while you should go in because there could be complications.
