I just found out that I am pregnant and now in search of a OBGYN. We are new to the area (Post Falls) and I am a first time mom so a little apprehensive. I would prefer a female doctor, but willing to listen to other suggestions. I wouldn't mind traveling a little ways if need be. Please help me find a doctor that will make this experience a pleasant one!

What can I do next?

I have 2 children and for both my dr. was DR. Mary Sanderson from the Womens Clinic in Coeur d' Alene. I really liked her.

Hi Sara,
I worked for Health Care for Women in Coeurd'Alene for over 10 years and would highly recommend their office, especially Dr. Jon Cutting. He delivered both my children in addition to my working for him and I felt totally confident in his skills. He has taken in 2 new partners since I left, Dr. Brett Penny who I have met but do not have any 'patient' experience with, and Dr. Marla Hardenbergh whom I have not met. I believe Women's Clinic of North Idaho would be a good choice also as I worked with Dr. Ambrose in the hospital years ago. Its really how comfortable and confident you feel with a particular physician and their office - how easy it is to get hold of them and how personable they are, how willing to listen to your concerns, besides the medical expertise that both these offices have established over the years. Talking with other young Moms that you meet will also give you insights into not only OB/GYN but Pediatric recommendations. Good luck in your search and keep up with good OB care. F.
