Default Looking for an NFP ObGyn

I am going to switch OBGyns I think. However, I looked on Omsoul, and I can't find an actual doctor who "specializes" in NFP. I thought there was one, but it looks like it is a nurse who is an NFP teacher in the Diocese.

Does anyone know of any other reasources?

I really like my doctor. I really do, but the more I think about her IUD recommendation the other day the more I think I need to find someone else...even though she has been pretty supportive of NFP up until that point.

Thanks!

I may have answered my own question!

The President of the Catholic Medical Association is based in Tucker, GA which is about 45 minutes from my home in the city of Atlanta.

I hope she sees Saturday appointments...

Edited to add: Just called her office to check her hours...no Saturday appointments. I just don't know how I could get out of the office for over 2 hours...

We don't have any NFP-only ObGyns listed within 2 hours. I called one of the nurse practitioners on omsoul and she gave me the names of OBs who won't provide referals for abortions. That's the best I could do locally.

Our general practice physician IS a member of omsoul, though.

Also try the listing of OB/Gyns at AAPLOG (American Association of Pro Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists). I am 80% sure the group opposes contraceptives, at least as a matter of principal. I think Dr. Hilgers is one of the founding members. http://www.aaplog.org/physearch.htm

And...
You may be able to get contact information from the Physicians for Life website
http://www.physiciansforlife.org/com...page/Itemid,1/
They are not supporting the Gardasil vaccine, and have quotes about the link between breast cancer and oral contraceptives on their site.

Thanks.

I would prefer to find someone in the city of Atlanta or one of the closer suburbs. Tucker is just such a hike on a workday! Especially because I work in Smyrna and live in Atlanta.

Oy!

Default Re: Looking for an NFP ObGyn

I found my OB by calling the local pro-life group when I moved into the area. She isn't NFP-only, unfortunately, but is NFP-trained and -friendly, which is about the best I can hope for given the location.

I would call the local pro-life organizations, and also check with the closest Catholic hospital if there is one. Some of them offer NFP instruction on-site, and might have some good leads.

Good luck-- I know how stressful this can be. I had some ugly, disrespectful encounters with doctors before finding my current OB...
