Choosing Your Best Obstetrician

Planning for a family or recently pregnant? One of the first things to do is to find the best obstetrician to care for you and your baby.

Recommendations from your GP or health care providers, friends and family and your own research will all help you to make this important choice.

There are a number of things to take into account that will help make your decision easier such as:

  • Your own health and whether your pregnancy is likely to have complications
  • The obstetrician’s approach and their specific additional training
  • Your own birth wishes
  • The hospital you’d like to give birth in
  • Whether the obstetrician will be present for all your appointments and the birth

One of the most important things is to feel comfortable with your obstetrician. Your first appointment will enable you to gain a good understanding of their attitude and nature. It is vital that you can raise any issues regarding your pregnancy with them, feel listened to, cared for and supported by them and of course, be confident in their abilities!
