1. Choosing A Provider
Do you prefer a male or female provider? OB-GYN or midwife? Is it important to you to have a provider who supports breastfeeding or one who has a low cesarean delivery rate? Shop around for providers, as diligently as you would for a new car.

You want someone you are comfortable with and feel you can trust, for yourself and your child. If there are some you are deciding between, set up some interviews to meet with them and ask questions. Recommendations from others are a great way to get some providers you think would be a good fit.
