By Anne-Marije Rook

If you’re expecting or thinking about having a baby, finding the right doctor is a pretty good place to start your journey. On April 10th, Swedish Medical Center will be offering an OB Speed Dating event, allowing expecting parents to meet several doctors who deliver at Swedish and get to know them in a fun, low-key environment.

During the event, participants get five-minute one-on-one interviews with each obstetrician or family practice doctor with an OB specialty. If you hit it off with one, then you can make a follow-up appointment when you’re ready to start your care.

Before and after the speed dating interviews, participants can exchange notes with other parents, learn about prenatal care and Swedish classes for expectant and new parents.

The speed dating event will take place on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 from 6 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. at Swedish/Ballard cafeteria, 5300 Tallman Avenue N.W. on the first floor.
