This is a very requested episode on the various models of care during pregnancy and birth. Today I am going to break down all the various options for prenatal care and care during birth in the hospital. There is tremendous variation and you really have to ask your own provider about how it works in their practice. This is important to know, especially for when it comes time for your birth, so you know as much as you can about who is there with you during your birth and you can prepare accordingly. And I’ll be honest some doctors are better than others at communicating how their practice works, especially if it’s a group practice.
It’s so important to know how your particular provider works so you can be prepared. This is part of what I teach in my free online class on how to make a birth plan. Part of making a birth plan needs to be understanding who could be there for your birth and how they practice. You do not want to just show up for your birth with your birth plan without having some idea of how the person on the other side is going to react to it and whether or not they will support your wishes.
