Questions to ask your healthcare provider.

Below is a list of ten questions to ask potential doctors or midwives that you are considering delivering your baby. These questions are just a baseline, so you can add or take away what ever does not suit you. Remember, no matter what, go with your gut. Trust yourself.

  • What is your birth philosophy?
  • Labor and delivery is unpredictable, who will deliver my baby? Who will deliver if you are not available?
  • How do you feel about un-medicated natural births?
  • What is your cesarean rate?
  • What is your VBAC rate?
  • What do you consider as a high-risk pregnancy?

      • Movement?
      • Various positions?
      • Food?
      • Massage?
      • Medication?
