Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life, and it is important to have regular check-ups with an obstetrician to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery. An obstetrician is a medical doctor who specializes in pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Here is a list of questions to ask your obstetrician during your pregnancy consult:
What is my due date?
What is the plan for prenatal care?
What are the signs of preterm labor?
What is the process for inducing labor?
How will my medical history impact my pregnancy?
Are there any specific medical conditions or complications I should be aware of during pregnancy?
What medications are safe to take during pregnancy?
How much weight should I gain during pregnancy?
What exercises are safe to do during pregnancy?
What is the process for a c-section delivery?
What is the process for a vaginal delivery?
Can I have a doula present during labor and delivery?
How will the hospital or birthing center handle pain management during labor?
What are the options for postpartum care?
How can I prepare for postpartum recovery?
It is important to ask as many questions as you have during your pregnancy consultation. It is also a good idea to bring a list of questions with you to ensure that you don’t forget anything. Your obstetrician is there to support you and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Don’t be afraid to speak up and ask for clarification if you don’t understand something. It is better to be well informed and prepared for pregnancy and childbirth.
