Great OB especially for fertility? (CW: miscarriage)

I'm 40 seeking to conceive child #2 and just had an early miscarriage. In the process, I came to feel that my OB's office was not a good fit for me. Because of the impersonal approach of the practice group, I hardly ever talked to the same person twice, and efforts to get help during the miscarriage were met with slow replies or non-responsiveness. Unfortunately, as my insurance doesn't cover fertility, I can't go directly to an RE. Can you recommend an OB who is great on fertility issues? And / or can you recommend an OB who is available when you need them (my OB at this practice group was booked up for the next three months solid!) and in a well-run practice that allows you to build human connections? (I hope my desires don't sound unrealistic. I actually had a good experience at Kaiser because I always saw the same OB, and when I got pregnant last time they efficiently ordered a small suite of labs to make sure everything was going well. But now we're with Blue Cross Blue Shield.) Thank you!

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. She’s not an ob but CNM Lindy Johnson may fit your needs. She delivers at Alta bates. I had the same issues with my ob office, which is why I switched. Her care is definitely different-more midwife style-than an on but imo is better and she is always availabe by phone. She doesn’t see you until you are already pregnant so you’d need to find a separate doc for fertility.

I had a great OB/Fertility doctor, however it is in San Francisco, UCSF, Heather Huddleston (
