Selecting the Right Practitioner

Many kinds of professionals can help you through pregnancy and delivery, including obstetrician, family practitioner, and nurse-midwife. In some big city hospitals, only obstetricians deliver babies, while in some small towns, a family practitioner is the only choice.

Choosing your practitioner is an important task. Finding the right practitioner to care for you and your baby is a decision you don’t want to take lightly. You will spend many hours in this person’s office in the next few months, and your choice will ultimately impact how, where, and when your babies make their entry into this world.

To find the best practitioner you can ask for recommendation. Talk to friends and family members who have already chosen a doctor for their children. After your have collected the names of a few possible practitioners, it's time to interview them. There are many questions that you need to ask, such as:
  • How long have you been practice?
  • How many babies have you delivered?
  • Do you accept my insurance?
  • Who is your covering doctor when you are not available?
  • And other
