Ann Marie, if you want to find perinatologists who also run regular OB practices, investigate your nearest medical school. About 50% of the faculty in the department of OB/GYN where I work are MFM board-certified. The university runs two clinics and that's how I ended up with an MFM as an OB and I didn't even know it!!! I originally picked my OB because she was female. The OB that I phoned hoping to see originally was actually out on maternity leave and the secretary suggested I consider a new faculty member. She was just amazing and I was sorry when she left. However, by then I'd met a few others LOL and so I had no difficulty moving over to another MFM in the group.
The catch, they are pretty much the only board-certified MFMs in the state so quite a trek for anyone not in the neighborhood.
