  • A vaginal birth is pretty much a given unless there are extenuating circumstances. You will be given prenatal vitamins and a complete health history given in which you need to be really honest. Testing will be done to make sure you don't have any STDs or blood issues that would complicate the pregnancy. You will be given a lot of informational brochures to take home that will likely answer all your questions.

  • If this is your first baby, it is pretty much assumed you'll deliver vaginally unless you have complications.

    If you've had a c-section before, most drs will recommend having another one.

  • Just listen to him. You don't have to ask any questions unless you really have them. I'm sure some will come up by the time you give birth. good luck! You don't ask to have a vaginal birth. That is the first choice for everyone.

  • RESEARCH!  Research, then research, then research some more.  Learn through other peoples stories.  Listen to the moms on here and figure out your views on giving birth and how YOU want it to go.

  • Usually C-sections are done in a situation where it is compromising the mother's and or the baby's health. Remember that no question is stupid, ask anything and everything you feel you want to know!! Congrats!

  • Are you choosing an OB for your maternity care?
    If vaginal birth is a priority (you want to avoid an unnecessary cesarean) you might consider avoiding hiring a surgeon (OB) and opt for a normal birth specialist (midwife).

    There are a lot of things you can ask and talk about in your interview. Would you like a list of questions?
    Are you interviewing several care providers to choose the best fit or have you already decided?

  • I agree with doulala... I was going to also suggest that you hire a midwife. They will help you work WITH your body, and will only send you for a c-section as a last resort. Obstetricians do episiotomies and c-sections at the first sign that the birth isn't going "to plan".

  • 30% of hospital births ARE via c-section! Ask your Dr. about his statistics for vaginal births and C-sections, and make your decision accordingly.
