Guess what I've been doing this morning? I have been phoning EVERY single obstatritian in Regina trying to find someone who will be my doctor. So far I have called nine of them and been told nope nine times. What am I going to do? There are only 2 more left on my list, I've phoned womens health in Regina and they gave me all the names they have. What happens if I can't find a doctor? I can hardly drive back to Edmonton every 2 weeks for my appointments, and 8 hours is an awfully long drive to deliver a baby when the time comes. There are a couple of GP's in Regina that deliver babies, but because this pregnancy has been a little higher risk than most, and because Mary's delivery was such a gong show, my Dr here wants me to see an obstatritian. Ugh. I may end up doing this all by myself like they used too in the olden days!

I hear it's best to look for a bean field to squat in for delivery as the corn stalks get in the way and are scratchy.

Have you tried having your OB send a pleading letter to a Dr. in Regina? It might take you farther than cold calling.

that's true. other doctor's usually respond better to professional referrals.

Yes, a referral can work wonders. Insist on one, also that way your doc here will be in contact with the new one and they should have all the pertinent information.
