How to Choose Your Pregnancy Health Care Provider

Your pregnancy test is positive! But before you start shopping for baby clothes, you'll want to shop around for the right health care provider. There's a dizzying array of practitioners to choose from for prenatal care and delivery, and your selection will play a large part in terms of which options are open to you and how you feel about your pregnancy, your childbirth experience and your adjustment to motherhood. You'll want a care provider who shares your philosophy of childbirth, makes you comfortable while educating you about your pregnancy and delivery options, and provides the best possible care for you and your baby. Just a little intimidating, but manageable if you know what you want and what kind of care givers you're looking for.
