Default OB and/or Midwife Referral for Rex

I am hoping to get an OB or Midwife referral for Rex. I am currently a patient at Kamm McKenzie who is great, but after touring WakeMed and Rex, I felt more comfortable at Rex. I would love to give birth at UNC birthing center but that is just too far from us. I am currently 28 weeks so need to make any switch soon!!!! Thanks!

I go to Atrium Ob-Gyn and love, love, love all their doctors. No midwives there but they are a great practice. Delivered at Rex almost 2 years ago (from Friday) and they took great care of me. The lactation consultants were a little overworked so if you are thinking of breastfeeding, look closely at whether your potential pediatrician has one on staff. Ours was a LIFESAVER! Atrium also has a lactation consultant that comes in once a month to offer a primer class in the evening in the office.

Mid-Carolina sees a lot of people around here but I felt they were a little big. Had a good friend just switch from Mid-Carolina to Atrium and she was very impressed.

I used to go to Mid-Carolina but I switched to Associates in Women's Healthcare and have been happy. They delivered my last baby at Rex. They are a female doctor only practice so depends on your preference.

My wife went there for a menopause issue and found the practice to be caring, competent, and well run.

We highly recommend it.

I don't think midwives deliver at any hospitals here, only the birthing center. There are practices that have midwives who will see you for appointments, but will not be the ones delivering your baby.

Mid-Carolina has brought me safely and happily through 2 pregnancies. Both kids were delivered without issue, although both were csection. I labored with the first and was NOT pushed into surgery-he left it as my call. Turns out I physically couldn't have delivered him. #2 is 6mos and was a repeat cs due to the physical issue discovered during the first delivery. They would have allowed me to attempt a vbac, but it wasn't worth the risk I would have been up against.

REX is super nice.

Mid-Carolina is full of great, caring, and highly-competent doctors.

I know Dr Chawla at Associates and she's an outstanding person as well - and a highly competent Doctor.

I also know Dr Homeister at WHA/Wilkerson and she's great.

But in the end, I'm a man so I don't know about personal interaction with them
