Ask someone who has recently gone through pregnancy, or family members to recommend an obstetrician.

You could also decide to try one of the other methods for birthing such as a mid-wife or your family physician.

What should you look for in an Obstetrician?

Where is the practice located and is it close in relationship to your work or home? You will most likely have monthly visits and making your appointments is very important.

Is the physician covered by your insurance plan?

Does the physician share your concerns and attitudes toward important decisions such as pain relief, circumcision, breast feeding and having other people in the birthing room with you.
