Depends: If fibroids are an issue, an obgyn is more appropriate. You may be in a situation where you need a cesarean delivery and knowing your surgeon and having a relationship with them is helpful medically, inter personally, and ultimately will provide you with better care. I dont think your age makes you high risk at all.

Perinatalogist: You should be seen by someone who has a deep/broad knowledge base on your issue. If you're at very high risk, you may want to consider a perinatologist-they are very skilled at super high risk pregnancies...Your OB or gp may have a recommendation for you in your local area.
