In today’s episode I'm sharing 9 important tips to help you make sure you have the right doctor for you during your prenatal care. Emphasis on YOU because it really is going to be individualized to your unique needs. A doctor who may be great for one person may not be great for another. There is not a one size fits all approach.
In order for you to find the right doctor you’re going to need to ask a lot of questions and it’s very important that you ask the right ones. Think about what you want for your birth and then start searching for a doctor who can support those wishes. Always listen to your gut and remember that it’s your birth and your body - you deserve to have a doctor who supports you and makes you feel respected.
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- How your choice in doctor can impact your overall birth experience
- How vital it is to listen to your gut when selecting an OB
- Why it’s better to switch doctors earlier on in your pregnancy rather than later
- Which questions should you ask when determining if an OB is right for you
- Why you should ask your doctor questions that require a specific and intentional answer as opposed to yes or no
- What broader aspects of your care are wrapped up in which doctor you choose
