Important Questions to Ask

When you are newly pregnant, most people will ask what kind of colors or theme you want, but there are a lot of important questions to consider as you move forward into motherhood for the first or the fifteenth time!

  • Where are you giving birth? home, hospital, birth center or other location?
  • Who are you giving birth with? CNM, LM, Non-LM, CPM, DEM, OB, FP or unattended/family birth?
  • What are my hospital’s cesarean rates?
  • What are my provider’s induction, episiotomy and cesarean rates?
  • What is my midwife’s transfer rate? What is the most common reason?
