What Questions Should You Ask Your Partner’s OBGYN?
Only an insane man would presume to know which doctor your partner should select as her BDFFNM (Best Doctor Friend For The Next Nine Months). That said, you have a stake in some of the questions all pregnant women should ask of a potential birth doctor. Make sure you and your partner are both comfortable with the doctor’s rates of – and reasons for – interventions like unplanned c-sections or vacuum-assisted deliveries, and whether or not a doula will be welcome in the delivery room. While you’re on the topic, maybe find out if your in-laws will be welcome, too.
