I want to give birth in USA so I want to know good hospital and contact to OB Doctor ?

Good care everywhere: Obstetric care in the USA is very good almost anywhere you go. You need to decide what part of the country will be convenient for you. Do you have friends or family who can support you? Choose a hospital nearby that has a high volume of deliveries. If you have medical problems or a poor obstetric history, consider a university hospital as you will have access to many specialists there. ...Read more

How do doctors (ob's) check to see if your water has broken? What do they look for?

How do doctors (ob's) check to see if your water has broken? What do they look for?

Physical exam: Your doctor will do a speculum exam and look for a pool of amnionic fluid in the vagina, a nitrazine test that checks the ph of the fluid and will put some of the fluid on a slide and look under the microscope for a ferning like pattern that the fluid will make. In certain circumstances that are very rare, your doctor could do an amniocentesis and place dye in the fluid around the baby. ...Read more

Can you tell me how to find a ob doc that would do a has anyone lost there baby with amniocentesis test 4 DNA reasons?

Can you tell me how to find a ob doc that would do a has anyone lost there baby with amniocentesis test 4 DNA reasons?

Amniocentesis Safety: Rate of loss from amniocentesis is often quoted anywhere between 1/300 to 1/500 and often it has to do with the reason why the amniocentesis is done...If there's suspicion for infection or a genetic problem...The fetus may already be predisposed to stillbirth which could be wrongfully blamed on the amniocentesis. More likely to get fluid leakage with amniocentesis (1%) than fetal loss. ...Read more

I told my ob that i had an induced abortion. Are doctors allowed to tell it to my healthcare insurance? she did. And i felt humiliated.

Unfortunately yes: Doctors are obliged to document all pertinent medical history in your chart, because it's relevant. Unfortunately Insurance companies have the right to have access to your chart whenever they want. So Doctors do not have choice, unless you sign a letter with your Doctors office telling not to give any information to your Insurance and you are legally responsible for the consequences . ...Read more

If I want my baby born at another hospital, can I ask my ob to refer me to a doctor there?

If I want my baby born at another hospital, can I ask my ob to refer me to a doctor there?

Referrals: This is usually much better than showing up at a hospital where you have seen none of the doctors on staff. While there will be someone to take care of you that is not the optimal situation. They won't have your records and you may not be on the same wavelength as the covering physician. Do this soon before you are very advanced in your pregnancy. ...Read more

Should doctors be on ob night call past 55? My hospital has a policy but I want my doctor.

What is the difference between an ob/gyn and a fertility doc?

What is the difference between an ob/gyn and a fertility doc?

Training - Services: Fertility docs who are rei trained also provide some services that an ob/gyn doc does not (usually). For example, rei docs offer ivf, icsi, donor egg and surrogacy services that virtually no ob/gyn provides. Rei physicians spend over 90% of their time on fertility disorders unless they are university-based. Rei docs usually handle the most difficult cases too. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I just got an appointment to my OB-GYN for the first time. I feel comfortable asking this to a lady doctor. What should I expect?

I just got an appointment to my OB-GYN for the first time. I feel comfortable asking this to a lady doctor. What should I expect?

Just talking.: Most times you do not need to get undressed or have a pelvic exam by a GYN at your age. You will likely just be talking to the doctor. If you are more comfortable with a female then that is who you should see. If their is not a female OB/GYN nearby then perhaps you could see a nurse practitioner. It is important to be comfortable with your healthcare providers. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Not your problem: How sympathetic you may be The couple already have enough stress due to fertility problem , it is polite to stay out , Yes under 15 million count is considered low ( will be as high as 40 to 200 million ) if they did count obvious under the care of experts just wish them luck ...Read more

Am high risk ob patient, moving, how to find new doctor?

Medical Society: Either contact the local medical society or call the nearest labor & delivery unit and ask whom you should see. Sometimes your nurses can be your greatest asset, ask them who they'd send their own daughter to. There's also the local phone book but this can be random and it's difficult to get the info you need. Also ask your current doc, they may know someone. Good luck on your pregnancy. ...Read more

My ob/gyn says everything is ok but I see light green/yellow fluid on my pants time to time.What can it be?Doc doesn't see anything worrisome.

My ob/gyn says everything is ok but I see light green/yellow fluid on my pants time to time.What can it be?Doc doesn't see anything worrisome.

Green yellow fluid: If you have had a gyn check and everything looks normal, then these colors are most likely due to the metabolism of very small quanties of blood, perhaps left over from your last period, due to rupture of common small cervical cysts, or due to increased bleeding with periods from fibroids. If you have had the exam, i wouldn't worry. ...Read more
