In brief: Usually

Especially if they are in your area and trustworthy.
Nurses and your primary doc are good sources to ask.

In brief: Not necessarily

Your regular ob/gyn or a urologist can handle many of the simpler causes of urine leakage (a chronic infection for instance) and is probably the better place to start.
If your situation is more complicated or you are not improving despite treatment then a urogynecology consult is always reasonable.
