Hi all. I'm hoping to get some advice on what is normal regarding seeing your OB during pregnancy.
I'm 37 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. I chose my OB early on and had my first appointment around 12 weeks. Since then, I've had several appointments at the standard intervals, but have only seen the OB three times altogether - she is hardly ever there and so I usually see the midwife instead.
Although my pregnancy has been trouble-free, I'm getting close to my due date and I'm a bit concerned that I've only seen her three times. Is this normal or should I be worried? I still have a few questions about the actual labour and delivery, which I'd prefer to discuss with the OB, but I'm afraid I won't actually get to see her again until I'm in hospital! The midwife is great, but she won't be the one delivering my baby.
Would appreciate hearing from others re the level of contact with OB prior to delivery.
**Edit - should add I'm going private, so have paid the full pregnancy management fee etc.
