Hi all - after multiple rounds of Clomid, and then multiple rounds of IVF, I found out today that I am four weeks pregnant. I'm absolutely over the moon, but also feeling a bit overwhelmed. I had convinced myself that it hadn't worked again and I am travelling on Sunday to London for work for 3 weeks.
I will need to make an appointment with an OB before I leave so that I can see someone in the week I am back before we then travel to South Africa for a holiday (unfortunately the work trip and SA trip fell close together but SA has been planned for ages). Because I never wanted to "jinx myself" I've not done much research on OBs in Sydney (I'm originally from the US) and am now feeling very rushed.
Given what we've been through, I am looking for someone who is caring but straightforward (so great bedside manner), will listen to my millions of questions and will not jump to a C-section (I would like to avoid this if at all possible). I've had friends and family at Royal North Shore and have not been impressed with our interaction with the nurses there, so I would like to avoid RNS. I also want to discourage hoards of visitors which is highly likely if I am at RNS or any hospital in North Sydneyish area. I've had recommendations for Dr. Alan Kaye, Dr. David Kowalski, Dr. Natalie Shaw and Dr. Stephen Morris. Any experience with them or recommendations for others are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
