    Default Am I crazy?

    So need advice. I got an appointment with an OB who I really want. I'm due 16th August and she is on holidays from 8-17th August. Should I book her anyway? My first and I'm hardly to go on the 16th! Thanks

    Find out who delivers if she is not on and make sure your comfortable with them also.

    But yeah I'd book it. Chances are you'll go late.

    Yep book in. You will see the OB for all your appointments and there is still a chance they won't be at your delivery even if they weren't on holidays.

    I'd check who the back up is and if you are happy with that, book her in.

    Yes I would book with them, even of she wasn't on holidays you aren't guaranteed that she would deliver your baby anyway as she may not be rostered on. You will still see her for all of your appointments and she may be back before you have bub.

    As previous people have said... Just check who will deliver if they aren't around. My ob was due back from holidays on my due date. Dd was born 6 days early and she is my first!!!

    Thanks everyone. This OB just feels right for me and hopefully bubs will come when she is around.
