    Default Choosing the right Obstetrician - please help!

    Hi Everyone, I'm hoping you can help...I'm 9 weeks pregnant with our first child and I'm looking for a good Obstetrician that practices out of Burnside Hospital in Adelaide (I would prefer this hospital but am not limited to this option) I've realised this is quite tricky because unless you have an appt with a Dr you don't really know whether their ethos is aligned with your values. I would love to hear from you if you've had a really positive experience with your OB. The key things that are important to me are;
    - A Dr who is passionate about natural birthing (where possible of course)
    - Committed to delivering your baby as I'm learning that some OB's are on a roster which means you may not actually see them during delivery
    - A Dr that is mindful about the unknown risks associated with excessive ultrasounds. I understand ultrasounds have a place but it seems to be standard practice at every appt with some OB's which makes me nervous.
    Many thanks in advance and all the best with your baby journeys
