Why it’s important to find the right OB

Sarah Hoops knew her OB/GYN physician was a good fit after the first appointment.

When Sarah became pregnant with her first child in 2015, she wanted to find care near her home in Chanhassen, MN, so she asked her friends and neighbors. “My colleagues referred me to Ridgeview because they had delivered their babies there and each had positive experiences,” Sarah said. That’s how Sarah found her OB/GYN provider, Rebecca Baudoin, MD, Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics.

“After my first appointment, I knew she was the perfect fit for me,” Sarah said.

“Going to my appointments with Dr. Baudoin were more like visiting a friend. I had two uncomplicated pregnancies, but Dr. Baudoin was always willing to listen to my gripes about things that go along with being pregnant—allowing me to vent and leave feeling emotionally perked up! Dr. Baudoin was consistently patient, understanding, and so reassuring. Appointments were actually fun. She was able to relate to me because she has kids of her own,” Sarah said. “With both pregnancies, we were excited and confident to be teaming with Dr. Baudoin and Ridgeview.”

“Now that my family is complete, I’m a little sad that prenatal and postpartum care is behind me,” she added.
