  • I do not live in the area, but as for finding a care provider, I would encourage you to ask yourself the following questions:
    What are my expectations for prenatal care and birth?
    What is the latest research saying is safe for birth?
    What is the c-section rate of the hospital, and the individual doctor?
    Am I willing to have pain medicines, or would I like to have as least interventions as possible?
    Am I looking for very personalized care, or does it matter to me that much?
    Am I willing to pay out of pocket if I cannot find the care I prefer within my insurance network?
    Is the safety of the baby really the top priority with this care provider, or do they practice defensive medicine (fear of lawsuits)?

    These and other are going to help you choose who will be best for you and your baby. :)
