Smart Queries for Your Doctor! 🤰🔍

At 11 weeks, it's a great time to have a heart-to-heart with your OB-GYN about your pregnancy. Here are some fab questions to consider asking:

  • Health Insurance: Do you accept my health insurance?

  • Practice Structure: Are you in practice alone or part of a group? If it's a group, how often will I see the same person for my prenatal care visits.

  • Availability: If you're in solo practice, who covers when you are not available? How can I reach you during business hours? Is there an after-hours number for emergencies or concerns?

  • Hospital and Delivery: Which hospital will I go to for giving birth? Who will deliver my baby?
  • Labor and Delivery Preferences: What are your views on anesthesia during labor, episiotomy, alternative birthing positions, cesarean birth, and assisted vaginal delivery?

  • Support During Delivery: Who can be with me during the delivery?

These questions can help you get a clearer picture of what to expect and ensure that you're on the same page with your OB-GYN. It's all about feeling comfortable and informed, so don't hesitate to bring up any other concerns or questions you have!
