Re: First time with an OB...Normal?
I haven't read all the comments here but wanted to throw in my two cents.
March of dimes, The Joint Commission (governing body for hospitals) and ACOG (governing body for Obstetricians) all say fast labors and long distance from the hospital ARE NOT approved indications for delivering before 39 weeks.
If this Dr tried to schedule you at our hospital, we would refuse.
Hope you can find someone in your area that supports your wishes for birth!
