I recently switched to NWS for my first pregnancy. Unfortunately, I am quite disappointed so far. I am 20 weeks pregnant and have yet to see the same doctor more than once. I get different answers to the same questions at each appointment. There is no one at their practice that is looking out for my care. They give you a packet of dos/don'ts/etc at the first appointment and then you're on your own. If I don't ask about something, then it doesn't happen. I missed the opportunity to do the first trimester screening - I didn't know to ask for it. If I hadn't pressed the issue, I would not have gotten a referral for the 20-week ultrasound. If this is your 2nd+ pregnancy, you might be ok here. But this is not a good practice for your first pregnancy. Too much is in your own hands. I am hoping that my experience with them improves as I get farther along. At this point in my pregnancy I don't want to change doctors. I've also paid them quite a bit upfront for the delivery per their policy.
